We'll be glad to offer suggestions.

How does A Better Idea!/PrintMyLogo accept payment? (back to top)
A Better Idea/PrintMyLogo accepts payment via credit card or check. If it is your first time ordering from us, or if you have more detailed questions, click here to read our payment terms. All orders over $500 require payment by check.

Do you have any sales or specials? (back to top)
Yes! We offer many sales and specials on a regular basis. Check out our 'specials' page.  We try to update our site as much as possible with online sales flyers. 

How long does it take to receive my order? (back to top)
It can vary depending on the products you order, but most products from A Better Idea/PrintMyLogo will ship within 10-20 working days from the time the order is placed complete. We do offer rush service on many items. Call or email us for details.

My event is less than two weeks away!! Can you still help? (back to top)
Yes! Call us! Now! We offer rush service on many of our items. The best way to avoid any time delays is to have as much detail about your order together when you call.  You must have artwork ready to email of FedEx to us!

How do I prepare my artwork so you can reproduce it? (back to top)
You can prepare your artwork in several different ways. The best way to insure your design is replicated correctly is to also send a printout via fax so we can check it against your electronic file. To read more about our artwork guidelines, click here.

Can I specify which ink colors to use? (back to top)
If not specified, we will use industry standard colors. If your design requires a specific ink color, please specify a color using the Pantone Color Matching System (PMS #). While every effort will be made to match the requested color as closely as possible, we cannot guarantee exact color matches due to the nature of the printing process.

Can I specify which fonts to use? (back to top)
Yes, but you must provide A Better Idea/PrintMyLogo with the font. Keep in mind that certain fonts that are too thin or too detailed may not reproduce well. For questions about fonts, just give us a call at 401-841-5646.

How will you ship my order? (back to top)

Our preferred standard method is on your own UPS account, although we can use FedEx Ground or UPS and add it to your charges.  If shipping via an expedited method, we will ship UPS Air or FedEx Air. Shipping rates are pre-paid with your shipper account number or on your invoice. Please include your acct# on your order form.

Why should I order promotional wearables? (back to top)

Promotional products & logo sportswear benefit small businesses especially because the initial cost ratio vs. the rate of response is much higher than traditional forms of advertising such as print and radio. Also, if your promotion is useful and handy, your recipients will use them for YEARS, whereas a newspaper ad, radio ad, etc. may be read/heard only a few times and may not illicit a response.

I can't decide. Do you have any ideas? (back to top)
Yes! We have the experience and are the experts in promotional products. We have plenty of great ideas, good strategies, resources, and other wearables available.  Just tell us about your event for a "better idea"!
