Sales Tax Policy
According to Iowa state law, we must charge 7% sales tax on all orders shipping to any location in the state of Iowa, and for orders picked up at our Iowa location. Your shopping cart will reflect all applicable shipping charges at the checkout. If you have a tax exempt certificate, please contact customer service for appropriate credit on your account.
Custom Artwork Formats
We work in a PC environment. Artwork should be black and white line art, preferable in a vector file, such as AI or CDR. However, we will accept good quality bitmap files such as: TIF, BMP or JPEG. Do not use copies of letterhead, business cards, or other stationary. Do not send logos in Microsoft Word documents or zip files. These are poor quality. Make sure image is at least 3" in size and a minimum of 300 dpi. All fonts should be converted to curves/outlines/paths. Color artwork requirements are the same as above. We will reproduce color as close as we can.
Email your file to firstname.lastname@example.org. Name your logo file your company name or your name. All logos sent should identify your order number in the subject line to avoid delays. If we are unable to use your logo, you will be notified via email. Resend artwork or reply to either cancel your order or proceed without a logo. Staats will not be held responsible if you decide to go ahead with any logo we recommend against usage.
Our in-house experts will place your artwork, along with any text, on your product at their discretion, to provide the appropriate look. If you prefer your award to be laid out in a certain format, please specify on your order, and we will make every attempt to accommodate your request. Final layout of all awards is left to the discretion of the Staats Graphics Department.
Be sure to choose "Custom Logo" in the appropriate options field for each award. If you do not do this, your award will not have your logo on it, even if you email us one. Custom logo die charges may apply for certain items.
Trademarks: Staats assumes that by submitting your logo that you are hereby authorizing us to reproduce it as requested, and you further agree that you have authority to authorize such use. Staats will not be held responsible for any trademark infringements.
