Here are the steps you should follow to send the artwork:
  1. Sending artwork electronically by E-Mail is the fastest and most efficient method. For best results:
    1. Include the PMS (Pantone Matching System) numbers of your colors, since colors may not translate exactly by E-Mail.
    2. Provide all linked graphics.
    3. Once you have your artwork in an electronic file, it is ready to send to dan@thecuresafety.com.

OR


  1. If mailing a disk, use 3.5" disk, zip cartridge, or CD.
  2. IMPORTANT: Also, send a color printout of the artwork.
  3. Choose a carrier service with tracking capabilities.
  4. Mail to The Cure, Inc. / 4950 Grover St / Omaha, NE 68106.

OR


  1. Send a hard copy of artwork by a mail carrier service.
    1. If using a business card or letterhead stationary as the "artwork," send us two samples. Mark up one sample, indicating ONLY the items you want on your hardhat logo. ALSO send an unmarked sample for us to scan for use as your logo artwork.
    2. Include the PMS (Pantone Matching System) numbers of your colors.
    3. Provide all linked graphics.
    4. Mail to The Cure, Inc. / 4950 Grover St / Omaha, NE 68106.

Important Notes:

  • The Image 2000 premium process (photographic quality images) requires a digital file or a photo of your logo for scanning. Other types of artwork which can be used for regular logos, like business cards and letterhead, are NOT acceptable for this premium process.
  • Remember, never send us the only copy of this file. Always save a copy for yourself.
  • Remember to send a color guide and a complete list of all the fonts that were used.
  • Always make a backup of your file. Never send us the only copy that you have made.
  • Make test prints of the files on a laser printer. Remember, if it won't print on yours, it won't print on ours.

Today's technology allows us to reproduce almost any design or logo you want from high-quality artwork that you supply. The best possible way to provide artwork of your logo or graphic design is in an ELECTRONIC FILE format. Most artwork for graphic designs like logos is created electronically. This means that the logo on your business cards, letterhead, and advertisements probably started with an electronic file of that artwork.

Whoever produced the artwork (probably a graphic artist) should have a file of that work. This means that it has been saved in a computer, in a format that is readable by other computers. The graphic artist should be familiar with programs and terms explained below.

Here are the steps you should follow to secure the artwork:

  1. Contact the person who developed the artwork that you want to use and have them send to you an ELECTRONIC FILE of the artwork, if possible.
  2. Specify the following:
    1. For the best results, the files should be sent in their NATIVE FORMAT. Acceptable files are IBM compatible.
      • CorelDraw 10.0 or lower
      • Freehand 9.0 or lower
      • Adobe Illustrator 9.0 or lower
      • PhotoShop 6.0 or lower
    2. If one of those software versions is not available, or if the file type is unknown, ask for one of the following formats:
      • Tag Image File Format (.tiff/TIFF)
      • Encapsulated Post Script (.eps/EPS)
      • Joint Photographic Experts Group (.jpg/JPEG)
    3. Vector files with outlined text are preferred.
    4. Save all rasterized files, such as jpeg, tif, etc., at 300 dpi minimum.
    5. Include the font style, if possible.
  3. A printout of the file must accompany all electronic files.
      • The printout may be either a color or a black & white print, but it should be printed by a laser printer.
      • Critical PMS colors must be indicated on the printout, as well as the file name and the program used to develop it.
      • If needed, a graphic designer or service bureau may rework the file into an acceptable format.
      • Make a test print of your file. If you cannot print it, then neither can we.
  4. Additional guidelines:
    1. All fonts should be included in True Type and Type 1 formats. Fonts are the number one source of output problems. Do not use Helvetica Narrow, because it is unreliable in older versions.
    2. For best results, all fonts should be converted to curves. This scanned image should be saved as a TIFF file, and all linked graphics must be included.
    3. EPS, TIFF, and JPG files should be saved/exported at a resolution of at least 300dpi. The greater the resolution, the better the quality for reproduction. EPS, TIFF, and JPG files cannot be edited.
    4. Do not use PICT or Windows Metafiles, because they are unreliable.
  5. Image-setting tips for the graphic artist:
    1. Make test prints of your files on your laser printer, and be sure to include them with your job.
    2. Always do a "Save as" before sending your file. Also delete items from the desktop of the application (area outside the page).
    3. Make a complete list of the fonts used. As stated before, fonts are the No. 1 source of output problems. Please check your fonts that are used. You can convert fonts to outlines in Freehand or Illustrator. This will eliminate the need to list or include the font on disk.
    4. Eliminate unnecessary elements by deleting any items that are on the desktop or are completely hidden by other objects. Instead of covering an unneeded element with a white box, delete it. The image setter processes everything on the page, even the parts that are hidden.
    5. Don’t place an EPS or TIFF on a page and then re-save the page as an EPS. This is embedding or nesting and it probably won’t print.
    6. Do not paste your file in a Microsoft Word document. Just attach the art file to your e-mail.

If you follow these directions, you should have a file that will enable MSA to process your artwork quicker, and more efficiently. This can mean a faster turnaround on your order.


Frequently Asked Questions

How long do I have to wait for my hats?

  • We can now ship your new custom-imprinted logoed helmets within in 7 working days AFTER your artwork is approved.

How are the logos applied to my hat or cap?

  • To print the logos on the shells, MSA’s pad-print system uses a type of printing plate to hold the ink. The ink is picked off of the plate by a silicone pad, which then transfers the image to the shell. This is a very simplified explanation.
    If your logo has more than one color, your logo design is broken down onto different plates. Each plate is at a staging area on the pad-print machine. As the shell moves from station to station, that part of the logo is picked up by the pad, and then transferred to the shell.

How many colors can my logo be?

  • You can choose up to four colors (five, if the color of the shell is included in the design).
    The logo can be located on the front, back, and/or sides of the shell. Of course, the image that is to be reproduced will have a direct affect on the overall size of your logo as it appears on a shell. The size depends on the configuration of the logo and how that relates to the helmet shell.

What does it mean for my image to be camera-ready?

  • To be "camera-ready," the artwork must meet certain criteria. First of all, it has to be in a condition that is ready to print. The fonts have to be acceptable to the program, so that they are legible when printed. The lines should be full and clean with no ragged edges.
    The colors should be separated, or a color guide provided so that the color(s) that you want will be what is printed. If the edges of your artwork are ragged, or cut into, the artwork on your logo will look the same. We consider any piece of artwork that requires less than a 1/2 hour of cleaning to be camera-ready.

Do you use paint for the logos?

  • No, we use epoxy-based inks for our logos. The ink results in a hard finish that is very durable.

How does a logo stick to the helmet?

  • The surface of every shell that receives a logo gets a surface treatment first. This treatment can be done with an open flame, or with a static discharge unit. Every pad-print machine has a static discharge unit built into it. This is the very first step in our printing process. If the surface does not receive this treatment (called a corona effect treatment), the inks will not adhere to the surface of the shell. The treatment conditions the top layer of polyethylene so that the ink will bond to the surface.

What is a font?

  • A font is a common printing term for the style or design of letters and numbers. There are literally thousands of fonts in use today. In order to have the correct font, the one you want put on your helmet, you must provide us with the font and its size.

If I make a small change to an existing logo, do I have to have a new logo made?

  • Yes, since logos are etched into metal plates, which cannot be altered, any change to a logo or design will require us to set up a new logo "from scratch."
