ARTWORK REQUIREMENTS AND FILE FORMATS FOR LOGOS
Export your file into a PDF (Portable Document File) or EPS (Encapsulated Post Script). These file formats are universal.
We can accept other file formats, however there can be import incompatibilities which require additional set-up to ensure accuracy. If this is the case then setup fees may apply. Other file formats we can accept are: JPEG, PNG, TIFF, AI, PSD
We will not produce directly from these formats and they will required additional setup fees:
Microsoft Office (Word, Excel and Powerpoint) & Works (WPS), Microsoft Publisher, GIF, BMP, PICT, MIX & PCX, Visio.
There are 2 stock fonts to choose from – Times New Roman and Arial. If you wish to provide your own font with your order please send through the font file in a TTF format.
COLOURS FOR ARTWORK
Convert all colours to CMYK mode. All our production equipment is based on a CMYK process and RGB colors show a different result.
To ensure color matches for “colour critical” print jobs, we can provide a colour proof on the desired media. This service does require a nominal fee. Status Signs does not guarantee colour matches, nor warranties any colour reproductions of customer supplied art files unless the customer approves a production proof of their file.
REMOVE LAYERS ON ARTWORK
Flatten all layers and transparencies. Some design programs such as photoshop use a layer system and sometimes these layers do no import correctly into our production software.
RESOLUTION OF ARTWORK
Set your resolution for at least 300dpi. The higher the better.
FILE SIZE OF ARTWORK
For larger projects (usually larger than 4ft.x8ft.) it helps to design your files at 50% or 1:2 aspect ratio, this helps to reduce file sizes and helps the file transfer process.
We can not apply your artwork to the helmet if it is a photograph of the artwork. You must provide the original artwork file.
HOW TO SUPPLY ARTWORK FILES
Files can be supplied by email (below 10mb). There are many other free services such as wetransfer, google drive and dropbox to name a few that we can also accept.
ARTIST AIRBRUSH HELMETS
Please contact retailers directly if you wish to further customise your helmet by using a skilled artist to hand paint your helmet. The retailer will work with you to produce a design to your specification. The final design will then be forwarded onto the artist for reference only to then capture the design as closely as possible. The final physical output will be similar to the proposed 2D design but will not be a 100% match. The Artist will endeavour to match the proposed design.
CHARGES FOR GRAPHIC DESIGN
If your artwork requires extensive work to bring it to specification, a fee of £30 per hour will be charged. If you do not have, or would like one of our qualified graphic designers to create it for you, our fee is £30 per hour.
When supplying print ready artwork, please ensure you supply an accurate printout of the layout if supplying on disk, or a low quality JPEG/JPG or PDF file if supplying via email. Final responsibility for the quality and suitability of all electronic files rests with the customer or their agent/designer. Armis Approved retailers will not accept or process files that are not compatible with our production environment or those indicated on this document. Electronic artwork supplied using incorrect file formats or construction methods will be returned to the customer for correction.
USE OF LOGOS AND ARTWORK ON HELMETS

ONLINE CONFIGURATOR AND COLOUR DISCLAIMER

Shades may differ due to the colour and resolution of your computer screen and/or your colour printer output. Armis Sport Ltd, Retailers or the manufacturer are not responsible or liable for colour matches produced in visual proofs or on any referenced colour swatch. Please note that gloss and matte lacquer on the helmet shell can affect the shade of the colour. The peak colour can differ in shade due to the way the leather-look surface finish changes the colour. If you would like further information about colour, please request the retailer to show a physical swatch of chosen colour in the given finish. If any artwork, logos or initials, are supplied for a visual proof, these will not be to scale and will slightly differ in size to the final helmet produced. Please state dimensions in mm if you have a preference in size.
