We prefer vector art (We currently work in Illustrator CS6) with all imported graphics and fonts. Spot colors should be specifically identified. Include white if necessary. All fonts must be included in the file. To prevent conflicts, it is recommended to outline all fonts. 4 color process art should be 300dpi and can be in PDF, JPG, or Photoshop format. All images should include the required bleed if necessary.

Templates are available, please contact us. Artwork can be supplied on any removable media or sent via email to [email protected]. Due to the curvature of our buckets and tubs, artwork will often appear distorted on the imprinted item. Corrective artwork distortion is done by our graphics department to computer generated artwork. Artwork design is available if needed at current hourly rates ($60.00/hr). Virtual proofs sent via email available at no charge.


All new accounts (first time orders) require full payment in advance of order production, per Company policy. MasterCard or Visa accepted at time of order placement. No anticipation allowed. Net 30 day open credit terms (from date of shipment) are available to established and rated customer accounts in good standing. Please call to inquire about your company’s credit limit. (Sorry, credit cards cannot be accepted when credit terms have been extended and/or an invoice has been issued). Finance charges of 1.5% per month (annual percentage rate of 18%) will be added to invoices not paid according to terms. All credit terms information is set forth and detailed in the “Formgraphics Application for Account Credit Terms” forms and agreement.

Order Changes, Corrections or Cancellations

Any changes or corrections of an order received and acknowledged by the factory can be made only with the understanding that Formgraphics will receive compensation for any order processing or production which has already occurred starting at $10.00. Canceled orders are subject to a flat $25.00 charge, plus any and all artwork, screens, materials or other work completed at time of order cancellation. As all imprinted products are “custom made to order”, imprinted merchandise sales are final and imprinted products cannot be returned for refund. Un-imprinted metal products (which are to be returned to the factory) must have prior authorization, be adequately packaged, shipped via prepaid freight and are subject to a minimum restocking charge of twenty-five percent (25%).


Due to the difficulty of manufacturing exact requirements without sacrificing quality, Formgraphics reserves the right to ship up to five percent (5%) over or under customer order quantities. All items are shipped FOB our main Minnesota factory, except galvanized metal tanks (#213ST and #223ST) which are shipped FOB our Nebraska factory. Multiple location (drop) shipping directly from the factory (with address labels supplied by customer) is available at additional cost. Drop Shipments available. The first two locations are free of charge, then $10.00 per location after that. Quantities of product to be drop shipped to multiple locations must be made in standard carton configurations and quantities. Formgraphics cannot be responsible for product quantity discrepancies of orders shipped to any locations(s) other than that of our customer. Special packaging configurations generally are available at additional cost. Items designed as “bulk pack” (without cardboard carton of any type) ship on shrink wrapped pallets via LTL common motor carrier. All ordered merchandise becomes the property of buyer once the goods leave the factory and are shipped strictly at buyer’s risk.
