READ ALL INSTRUCTIONS BELOW!!! (PLEAAAAASE READ THIS!)
IF YOU ARE LOCAL AND WOULD LIKE TO PICK UP LOCALLY!!! YOU MUST WRITE "I'm Local and would like Local pickup" in your artwork email. If you do not say this, we will assume you want them shipped. If you are local you will be refunded $5 of the $8 shipping cost in cash in your gang run box. The three dollars you don't get refunded goes toward packaging. Local pickup is at our friends shop- PDXChange!!! They are on Mississippi street: 3916 N Mississippi Ave, Portland, OR 97227. Please be sure to check their hours before heading over and wait till we post that they are ready to pickup!!
Artwork can be any shape but I'll be proportionately fitting it into a 2.5 by 2.5 inch square space. Keep that in mind and don't send me long skinny images or you will be wasting lots of your space when I shrink it down to fit.
PLEASE... be sure to check your email the few days after the artwork deadline. If there are any changes that need to be made or the file format is wonky my apprentice MsToofAche will need to be able to contact you. She will be working on emails and files between Tuesday the 11th and Sunday the 16th. Vector PDF, 300 resolution scan or digital artwork saved in Jpg would be great. Tif is fine. So is PNG. Don't send us weird web files like Gifs, DON'T pull your artwork off the internet. I'm not responsible for forfeit spots due to corrupt files that will not open. This happens EVERY gang run, please don't let it be you!! Please also be patient with hearing back from us, she will indeed email you confirmation that we received your image but it could be anytime between when you submit and Sunday evening the 17th.
Please email your artwork to RXGANGRUN@GMAIL.COM and include the name you paypalled under so I know which address goes with which artwork. Not the EMAIL account, the name associated with your paypal address.
Remember- if your artwork is pixelated when you send it to me- it will look that way when screen printed- send me high quality files!
Send me BLACK AND WHITE files please. Screen printing requires a clean black and white image to expose to the screen. No pencil shading, no pencil at all. Black ink is best for scanned images. If you want to establish gradient- use cross hatching or dot work. The color comes when we choose the vinyl colors and apply the ink to the screen.
Be sure your image does not have tons of fine detail- screen printing is not like digital- I cannot get super tiny lines.
I am adding shipping charges to every order- 8 for US and $24 for Abroad. Sorry my abroad peeps, they've been raising the prices for abroad shipping and it really is getting nasty. Remember if you are local, it will still add shipping automatically, but I will refund you $5 of the $8 in your gang run box that you pick up.
If I forget to send my artwork- why won't you refund me?
Sadly a few ruin this for the rest. When I began doing gang runs a few years ago, I would refund people when they forgot to send me artwork. This taught people it was okay to purchase slots and then decide later if they wanted to do the run or not. Many people banked on the fact that they could get their money back and the amount of time I spent collecting and entering their information into my log sheets and setting up templates to only be shafted in the end is not something I can do over and over. Accountability is important, and I only want serious people involved in the runs.
Why don't you cut out the stickers?
I have a sticker cutting machine, but it requires wide margins of blank vinyl space, registration marks, and specific restrictive vinyl colors and ink colors. It wastes a lot of material and take a very long time to feed each sheet individually into the machine. It would drastically increase the price of the runs and the amount of time to finish them if we cut them out. It would also render a lot of the creative themes we do completely impossible. Keeping them uncut maintains a low price point and a quick turnaround- not to mention cool unique themes.
Why can't I send you images pulled off my instagram page or the internet?
When you upload an image to to the internet, like via social media, the image is automatically compressed to a smaller file size and resolution. It may look crystal clear on your phone but when I zoom in to begin getting it "print ready", it is very very pixelated and loses tons of detail. Crystal clear screen resolution is 72 dpi, crystal clear print resolution is 300 dpi. So send me original scans or digital files that are 300 resolution :)
