TEXT IN XD

The process of creating an XD imprint starts with first laying down white to ensure the colors of the imprint are true. Your text is then laid on top of that white layer, and a varnish is applied over those layers.

If your font is too thin, too small, and the words stand alone outside of your block of art, this white layer may show and make the text difficult to read. That is why we suggest that you use no smaller than 12pt fonts for this kind of text.

If the text is located within the art, or the chosen font is heavy enough, you may be able to go as small as 5-6pt. Because fonts vary, we look at the supplied art on a case by case basis and will either make or suggest changes that will produce the best quality imprint and clearest text.
