To ensure we are able to match up your E-mail art to your purchase order, please include your Company Name, P.O. Number, and Account Number on the art E-mail. Please include a copy of your purchase order with your E-mail, or indicate layout, color placement and item number.



A courtesy fax or E-mail artwork proof is sent with every new order. This is exactly how your imprint (size, placement and copy) will appear on your chosen item. Your order will be produced as proofed unless otherwise notified in writing. Please pay particular attention to spelling, phone, numbers, size and positioning of your layout. Written approval must be submitted before production will commence. Any delay in returning your art approval may result in a revised shipping date. Changes requiring more than fifteen (15) minutes of art time will incur an hourly rate of $47.00(g).

Virtual Proofs: Due to the inherent nature of most monitors (varied calibrations, color management, varying degrees of brightness and resolution), the actual imprint color(s) and imprint location will vary with actual production run. Be aware that most virtual samples are a visual guide and may not reflect the exact imprint placement for the actual production run. A true representation for your design is an actual pre-production proof.


Size and Placement of Artwork:

Clearly state on your order, if your artwork is one sided, two sided or a wrap around imprint. Also, please state if the art is to exact size or should be reduced or enlarged. If instructions are not clearly stated, we will use our best judgment. Imprints using glass and ceramic enamels must be 2 cm from the lip and rim of the mug or glass due to voluntary FDA guidelines. Please take this into consideration if your art is to be vertically centered as we may be required to reduce its size. If specifications are not made on sizing of artwork Sabina is held harmless. Certain glassware products have a “seam” opposite the handle. We do not recommend wrap around imprints on “seamed” items. Artwork on some items depicted in this catalog will be altered in appearance due to the taper, shape or radius of the item. Some examples of this are martini glasses and brandy snifters.
