Design Guide for Printed Drumheads < Drumhead Builder < VividHeads < Products


Create custom drumheads online with our easy to use Drumhead Builder. Our program allows you to design drumheads direct from your web browser and see your proof in realtime. The following artwork files should only be uploaded into the Builder. These files allow for quicker uploads and faster building speeds
.

PREPARE YOUR DIGITAL FILES

File Types:
• .png .jpg .pdf files will load quickly into the builder.
• tif. eps .ai .svg files can be used but may experience longer upload times.
• If you are experiencing upload timeout errors, try resaving as .png .jpg .pdf and reload.

Transparent Images:
• The builder will support transparent images saved as .png .eps .pdf.
• By making the background of your logo transparent, you can then place it on top of any background image or color.
• The base color of all of our products is white; we cannot print on clear drumheads at this time.

Image Size and Resolution:
• Create and save files to 150 ppi when scaled to 100% at actual print size; the larger the better. Files as small as 75 ppi will look good printed.
• Your design will look great as long as the resolution meets or exceeds our recommendations

Color Mode:
• RGB Color Mode files are preferred. Colors come out more vivid when using this setting with our specific printing processes. Some very bright colors and fluorescents are impossible to achieve.

Bleeds:
• Backgrounds or graphics that run off the edge should include a 1" bleed
• Drumheads are printed into the hoop, this is the bleed area. It is not viewed but can been seen.

Fonts:
• Convert all fonts to curves or paths, to eliminate the need to send fonts

Copyright & Trademarks:
• By transmiting any materials to us, you agree to our Policies
