My Paper Cups Artwork Instructions - Option 2

While we are not set up as a “Design House” as such, we’re more than happy to help you lay-out any simple designs on your behalf.

The following are some details that would really help us put together the design for you:

  • A hand drawn sketch of what you are thinking as a design (if it is hard to explain in an email), otherwise written instructions are fine.
  • Instructions on size and positioning of any logos and images, eg. if you want your logo appearing on one or two sides of the cup?
  • The CMYK codes of any requested colours.
  • Access to vector files (eg. AI or EPS files) of any logos and high res images you wish to use in the design.  Please note that providing low res images will result a pixelated print output.
  • Your tagline, contact info or any other text you wish to include in the design.  Along with the font type of that text.
