About Absolute Graphics, Inc.
Established in 2001, Absolute Graphics, Inc. is a family owned and operated screen-printing, embroidery, heat applied, and promotional products company located in beautiful Fort Collins, Colorado. Fully licensed for Colorado State University, The University of Northern Colorado, and The Boy Scouts of America, we focus on the sale and production of high quality custom decorated apparel marketed towards the end user.
Here at AGI we do all our work on site in Fort Collins, so that you can be assured a level of service, personalized attention, and a collaborative effort all through the ordering and production process of your customized shirts and promotional items. Because we operate from a brick and mortar location we have a full service art department, an onsite showroom, shipping and receiving services, and a full time staff that is here to answer your questions and meet your needs. We even offer free delivery to local customers.
How do I get a quote or place an order?
We’re happy to give estimates and place orders over the phone or via email. Due to the nature of custom work, and the need for individualized specifications and detail, we’re unable to process finalized orders through the website at this time.
What’s your normal production time, (how fast can I get my order)?
If you have a deadline or an “in-hands” date for a specific event then we’ll meet your deadline. If there’s no specific deadline, then we generally work 2–3 weeks out depending on current workload. Also, turnaround time can be affected by response times during the approval phases of the process.
Can I bring in my own items for decoration?
Yes. Although we prefer to sell the garments as well as provide the decoration service, we understand that there may be circumstances where it’s better for a customer to purchase blanks and bring them to us for production, and we’re happy to make accommodations.
Do you have minimum order quantities?
For embroidery there is no minimum, so we’re happy to do singles if needed. We do have a 12 piece minimum quantity for screen-printing, but you’re welcome to mix and match styles and colors, as well as sizes, to reach your total quantity (as long as the decoration is the same on all items).
What types or art can you work from?
We prefer to receive finished vector or high resolution pixel graphics. The most common extensions of these files would be .ai, .cdr, .psd, .tiff or properly optimized .pdf. In many cases we can also use jpeg files (.jpg), but because of the compression making jpegs small, easy to copy, email, or post online, there can be some troubleshooting required to obtain the highest quality final product from them.
Additionally, we can use basic artwork such as napkin sketches, pencil drawings, photographs, or other creatively produced artwork for optimization or reproduction. The quality of the final design, as well as any art costs associated with converting or “cleaning up” artwork would be determined on a case-by-case basis, based on the specific need and desired results.
What if I don’t have artwork, can you create a design for me?
Yes. We have a full service art department and can do anything from simple typesetting to full logo or creative design. We also have an extensive clip art library with images that are free to use and reproduce for your customized shirts and promotional items in Fort Collins.
Do I get to see a proof or mockup of the design?
Yes. In order to reduce mistakes and spoilage, we required that you review the work we’re doing for you before we do it. For embroidery that means you’ll see a physical or emailed sewout of the new design so you can check color, size, quality, etc. For screen-printing or promotional products you’ll receive a digital mockup so as to check size, color, placement, spelling, and other details of the job. Additional proofing options are available on request or as needed.
What types of payment do you accept?
We accept Cash, Check, MasterCard, VISA, and Discover Card. We ask for a 50% deposit with the balance to be paid COD, but we’re also willing to extend additional payment terms upon request and final credit approval.
Do you offer free delivery?
Yes, we offer free delivery of customized shirts and promotional items to customers in Fort Collins, Northern Colorado, and other select destinations. We also offer shipping services, as well as providing other stocking and distribution alternatives.
