Artwork requirements: When sending us your amazing logo or design, the best way to send the artwork is as an EPS or AI file which is highly recommended due to the high quality and size of the files versus lower quality ones such as JPEG or PNG. 

Leadtime Options: On each product on our website we do have the standard lead-time available for the promotional item, however here at Signal Promo we do offer a variety of lead-time options to suit your business, event or budget! On most branded merchandise we offer longer or shorter lead-time's depending on your needs, but as most things in the world if you require something quickly you usually pay more in price. So our options vary from 3-5 day lead time versus 15 - 30 days which will leave you with a 15-20% saving if you go with the latter.
