|Concept Artwork|| STEP 1. CONCEPT ARTWORK
GETTING CONCEPT ARTWORK READY (THIS STEPS REQUIRES CUSTOMER APPROVAL)
This is the artwork created by working with our design team. Concept Artwork is a way for the customer to quickly and efficiently get the customer’s uniform idea into a workable media format. If you are not sure of exactly what you want, don’t worry. We have years of experience at this and we will quickly get you to where you want you design to be. See the methods below for getting concept artwork completed.
When the concept artwork is complete, we will send you by email a copy to show your team.
Although Concept Artwork looks good from the customer’s perspective it is not ready for production. Once the concept artwork looks good to the customer we can start to prepare it as production artwork.

STEP 2. PRODUCTION ARTWORK
AUTHORIZING PRODUCTION ARTWORK (THIS STEPS REQUIRES CUSTOMER APPROVAL)

Production artwork is the concept artwork that has been verified and production tested to produce all aspects of the uniform order to the customer’s specifications.
