Hello and Welcome to Amdec Screen Printing Company!

“Here below is a little cheat sheet of sorts, that tells you about our rules/guidelines in printing here at Amdec to help us better serve you. Artwork can be tricky, so I would like to help main stream it…..”

Guidelines to remember when designing artwork….
The best formats for artwork submissions to Amdec Are
PDF files with fonts converted to outlines…
you CAN use…..
Illustrator
InDesign.

NO Photoshop.
Bitmaps, jpeg and tiff images generated in Work or Adobe Photoshop are NOT recommended.

Barcodes/UPCs you must comply with GS1 Industry Standards. For information, visit http://www.gs1.org/productssolutions/barcodes/ We recommend “vector art” for the crispest print usually an .ai file or an .eps file.

Submit your artwork via email if under 10MG.
We will submit back to you a proof of your artwork, read this very carefully, and sign and date if correct and send back to us.

The industry standard for scrap allowance printing is 3% per color which is industry standard throughout the industry. Example two colors is allowed 6% scrap/waste of bottles.

We use Scotch magic 810 Tape for adhesion testing to make sure the ink adheres well to the container. If you require something different in your compatibility testing please let us know.It is recommended you do not go below 4pt in type size. Stay with bolder fonts, try to avoid swirly, flowery, thin fragile fonts, they don’t reproduce well in small font sizes. You do not need disjointed or hard to read fonts…Failure to use appropriate size and font type causes issues.
We prefer you do not use halftones or tints. They do not print well, and they do not reproduce the same on different production runs.

Silkscreen inks are mixed in spot colors using universal color matching systems such as PMS/Pantone Color Guide books or TOYO system. Use ink colors from the Pantone+ Solid Coated color library”
You should have specs from the bottle manufacturer showing you the printable area or “deco area.” Stay within those limits.
We can also mark up a container for you, if you don’t have a template from manufacturer.

We can produce samples for you at the time of printing before completing the full run There is a minimal charge of $160 for up to 50 samples.
Pricing is based on quantity, container type and the number of colors to be printed.

Everyone knows that the Super Bowl is the biggest game of the year.

“Everyone knows that the Super Bowl is the biggest game of the year. But there’s a lot even the biggest football fan may not have heard about the big game. Here are craziest and most interesting Super Bowl facts to keep you going until kickoff!”……….https://www.rd.com/culture/super-bowl-facts/

Super Bowl LVIII is set, as the Kansas City Chiefs and San Francisco 49ers will battle in Las Vegas for the Lombardi Trophy. The Chiefs appear to have overcome their regular-season offensive struggles, and even won two playoff games on the road as underdogs against the Buffalo Bills and No. 1-seeded Baltimore Ravens.

The average purchase price on TickPick was $9,815 on Monday morning. That’s nearly double the final average price of $5,795 for last year’s game between the Chiefs and Philadelphia Eagles in Glendale, Arizona, although current prices could decline.

The ball is crafted by hand in the U.S.A.

No ordinary coin will do….. Don’t even think of flipping a penny or quarter to start off the Super Bowl. Each game gets it own unique coin crafted by the Highland Mint. The front of the coin features the Lombardi Trophy along with the helmets of the two teams playing. Super fans can purchase a replica coin after the game.

Each team gets a lot of balls. Over 100 each! Learn more: https://www.rd.com/culture/super-bowl-facts/

The players drive in style!

What really happens during halftime?

Super Bowl = big bucks………..You might have known this Super Bowl fact already, but getting to the big game isn’t cheap. The average cost of Super Bowl 50 tickets in 2016 was over $4,700, says Brisa Trinchero, founder of shoowin.com, a ticket sales site. But not back in the day…Tickets for the very first Super Bowl in 1967 cost an average of $6, which was apparently too pricey for many. According to Trinchero, there were 30,000 empty seats!

Halftime performers make how much? Katy Perry, Bruno Mars, and even Beyoncé didn’t get paid a single dime to perform at past Super Bowls. But don’t feel too badly for them. Trinchero shares that although they don’t get actual cash, the exposure can be worth tens of millions of dollars, and often the halftime show scores higher ratings than the actual game.

No e-tickets here….Unlike attending most sporting events today, the Super Bowl only issues and accepts paper tickets, says Trinchero.

It wasn’t always “super”

The Lombardi Trophy

It’s good to be family—or a friend

Those crazy-expensive ads…. This is another Super Bowl fact you’ve likely heard about before: Those ads are big money. On average, a 30-second Super Bowl spot runs in the millions. The most expensive of all time? A $12.4 million ad by Chrysler in 2011.
