Artwork Submissions: Due to small imprint areas, Pilot requires artwork standards for all submissions. Digital files that do not fall within these standards will require artwork modification to ensure legibility and printing quality. Pilot assumes no liability for non-compliance with brand standards if submitted files require modification.
Two-Color Imprinting: Two-Color imprints are possible, but tight color alignment is not. Pilot will evaluate individual artwork on a case-by-case basis for adherence to our two-color printing capabilities. Customer artwork that features precise registration of overlapping colors may not be accepted, and one-color imprinting will be recommended instead.
