How do I upload logos (images)?
You can upload logos (or any other images) to embossier.com, store them there, and
order items with that logo printed on them. Uploading refers to the process
of copying a file residing on your computer onto the embossier.com Web site.
- Only your store has access to files you upload. Nobody else can see it or print it.
- You can have a maximum of 20 logos stored
on embossier.com at one time.
- You can delete logos that you have previously uploaded to make room for new ones.
- A logo file you wish to upload must:
- Be in the Encapsulated PostScript (.eps) format
- Not have an embedded or linked raster image preview
- Be of size 4 Megabytes or smaller
- Have had any fonts already converted to outlines (lines & curves)
- Have been created by a graphics program such as
Adobe Illustrator or Corel Draw
- Once your file is uploaded, you can store it on the embossier.com site
for as long as you wish and order as many different items as you wish
with that logo printed on them.
- When you order an item containing an uploaded logo, you can view a preview
of the item with the logo and any other personalization before you place the order.
Note that the preview will be of lower quality that the actual printed
item due to the nature of the Web and computer monitors.
To upload a logo to the embossier.com site, perform the following actions:
- Click on the My Logo Library link on the left side of the page.
The resulting page can contain two sections
- An Upload Image File section that allows you to choose a
file on your computer and upload it to the embossier.com site.
Note that if you already have 20 images stored
on the embossier.com site, this section will not appear. You will
have to delete one or more images from the embossier.com site
first, as described below.
- A Your Existing Uploaded Images section, which shows all of
the images you have already uploaded to the embossier.com site.
If you finished ordering items containing one of these images, you
can delete it by clicking on the Delete link to the left
of the image. Note that if you have not yet uploaded any images
to he embossier.com site, then this section will not appear.
- Click on the Browse... button in the Upload Image File section.
Note that, depending on your browser, this button might be called Choose
or Choose File. Once you click that button, a window appears that
lets you navigate the file system on your computer in the usual manner to
locate the file you wish to upload. Once you have found the file and highlighted it,
click the Open button. That will close the navigation window and place the
full path name of the file into the Send this file text box.
- You can optionally enter a short description of the file in the Description
text box. This can help you distinguish among similar looking images.
- Click the Upload File button to start the upload. Depending on the
size of the image and your Internet connection, the upload may take a while to complete.
When it does complete, you will see an indication of whether the file was
successfully uploaded. Also, the new image will appear in the
Your Existing Uploaded Images section if it was uploaded successfully.
