Our artist then lays out and creates production design print ready. • Complex Artwork Creation – this $50 art set up fee applies when we need to engage our artist to create the artwork for you and we will of course show you a proof. • Art ready means at least 250 dpi and the correct proportions for the plate you require - eg, for an Aussie size plate the art needs to be approx. 10cm wide x 4 cm high • First our US based manufacturer creates the artwork, then once you have signed off that it is correct, production commences • For most orders production art is completed and the items manufactured and ready to ship within a few days. • If required we can number or letter a set of plates with sequential letters and numbering – there is a surcharge of $1.80 per plate for this.

In 99.99% of cases, what you see on Dixie’s website or brochure is what you get. However, there are the odd times when designs have changed in some small way (eg: maybe a logo moves to a different location on the item, or the colour changes). Sometimes this information doesn’t always trickle down until the new designs are manufactured and shipped to Dixie. We hope this is helpful and understandable.
