    "Getting Started" Custom Branding Custom branding promotes your business image. Consider your business image and answer the following questions:
    • Does your business have an image?
    • Does your business have a logo?
    • Does your business have a color scheme to follow?

      Second, consider what you would like to put on your packaging and labels and then review the color selection available for the products you would like branded.
      • Do you have art that is ready?
      • If you do have art, please scroll down to Supplying your Art for details.

      • If you do not have art, please see the following options:
        "Design Solutions" for customers without art:
      • 1. Choose a Standard Text Layout. "Text Layout" links are available all custom brand pages, simply open, print, and fill in the described information. Ideal when the print simply involves lettering, you simply choose a typestyle from our selection of fonts. We layout the graphic at no charge to you.
      • 2. Choose a Standard "Format Upgrade". These are graphic design solutions. You choose your design, select fonts and fill in desired text. There is a small extra charge for Format Upgrades.
      • 3. Choose Fonts and/or Clipart inserts for Standard Text Layouts and/or Format Upgrades.
