When you use Dog Tag Decals, we want your experience to be as simple, fast, and clear as possible. To do this, we mainly need 3 things to start a custom order quote and work process:
Do you have your own artwork? If so, email it to us and we can verify that it will work. Typically, vector files are preferred to create the cleanest final product.
If you don’t have your own artwork previously generated into a workable format, that’s fine as well. the graphics team at DTD can turn your napkin sketch or even verbal description into an amazing design that will blow away your audience.
All we need is your desired color or colors that you would like your decals to be cut with and we will make it happen. If you can name the color, we can turn it into a decal.
DTD utilizes only the best supplies for our clients’ projects, suited for longevity, color fastness, and adhesive strength. Every day, we keep the following colors in stock, ready to cut your design:
- Gloss Colors
- Matte Colors
- “Infantry” Blue
Any colors required for your particular project that we do not have in stock usually can be ordered and in our shop within 72 hours.
Certain colors and options will carry a small surcharge such as reflective chrome, metallics, holographics, frost glass, etc. Please let us know if you are interested in learning more about these options and we will be more than happy to talk with you about the available colors and find the best option to complete your project.
How large/small do you want your design? It’s a simple question really. There are certain things that will limit your possibilities to a certain degree, but we can usually accommodate your requests.
As a general rule of thumb, most “car decals” are going to be in the 3″-5″ diameter range, or if they are long words or strips, figure 2″ tall by however wide they need to be in order to complete the design.
Vehicle door graphics can range anywhere from 8″ tall to 24″ tall. Those will depend on the design and the exact vehicle they are being applied to.
Vinyl can obviously be applied to many other surfaces and used in a wide variety of situations. Just give us some guidelines and ideas on how you plan on using your decals and we can lead you in the right direction for any of the options above. Once we have these basic criteria figured out, the DTD crew can work up your quote and figure out any fine details that need to be worked out before we can begin work on your project.
When it comes to lead times, we make sure that you understand as though your project is important to us. We work 7 days a week to make sure our clients are satisfied. Our usual lead times for in-stock decals are within 2 days, but custom decals are obviously just that – custom. With this exclusivity comes a certain time requirement to verify that your design is only being produced to the highest standards and can be utilized in the manner(s) you expect as an end user. We aim to have all custom orders out the door within 1 week, but that time may change based upon a number of factors such as material lead times if we need to order it, the quantity of decals in your order, as well as the complexity of your design. We will keep you in the loop every step of the way and will answer any questions you have about your order at any time.
Let us know how you plan on using your decals and we will come up with the best option to help it stand up to the elements, stand down when it’s time to be removed, and stand out in the crowd. Let us use our experience and expertise to maximize your investment and help your company, group, and/or organization grow it’s following and impact.
