Don’t forget to attach your logo and roster to the All-In-One form prior to submission. (All art needs to be high-resolution 300dpi images in pdf, eps, ai, jpg, or tif formats.) It is also helpful to include a Media Guide and Pantone colors to ensure your products comply to your organizations licensing usage. An Excel or Word file is preferred for rosters.

2. Receive a Price Quote

Upon submitting the All-In-One Form, we will send you a Price Quote within 1-3 business days. Note: Some Price Quote requests may be delayed based on the product requests. This is due to the high customization and materials used to produce our larger products.

3. Payment Required

Upon receiving a Price Quote, if you want to move forward with a design and production, please contact us with a Credit Card or Purchase Order. All others will require payment before product can be produced and shipped.

4. Design Phase

Once we received payment information, a designer will be in contact with you with a sample design. One design will be offered and manipulated until you are satisfied. If you wish to receive more than one sample design for your product, you may be charged an additional artwork fee of $25. Once you approve the design, let the designer know and they will get your order finished up and into production. NOTE: Once the design is approved and your items are in production, changes are no longer accepted. (See our Return Policy for more information.)

5. Production

Once the design is approved, we will get your items into production. Orders are typically shipped within 1-4 business days after receiving approval on the design. Many of our larger signs and dry erase boards take additional time to complete due to the customized designs and materials needed to complete the order.

NOTE: During the months of July to September, production times are much longer due to the high volume of orders during this time.

Every effort is made for our colors and logo usage to be as accurate as possible. Slight variations in color between online screen proofs and final product may occur. Unless we are provided with a specific Pantone color, we can not ensure your products will match your intended color tone.

6. Shipping

We pride ourselves on shipping your custom TAG UP products as fast as possible—including shipments to Canada and international destinations.

NOTE: Large dry erase boards and signs will incur extra shipping and crating charges. We will always choose the best method of shipping in regard to speed and pricing, to ensure you receive your product in the most timely manner available.

See our Shipping Policy for detailed information, including turn-around times.

Privacy Policy

We respect your privacy.

Any and all your information collected on our secure web site will be kept strictly confidential and will not be sold, disclosed to third parties or reused whatsoever.

Art Guidelines

We want to be your #1 source for bag tags and locker plates, but we also realize that you sometimes want to provide your own artwork.
Included, you will find artwork guidelines, sizing & resolution requirements, as well as uploading instructions.
If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to reach out to us: 800-528-0828 or sales@tag-up.com

Acceptable Files

Files from Adobe Illustrator (.ai .eps .pdf) or Adobe Photoshop (.tiff .jpg .psd) are preferred. Make sure to package all necessary files (fonts, links, etc) and/or outline all text and embed all images.

You can either supply a single image (non-personalized) and we can run your roster variables for you, or you can submit one
high-resolution file per name on your roster. You can work with your designer on this detail when ready to begin production.

Image Resolution

For highest quality results, save all Photoshop, TIFF, JPG or PSD images at 300 dpi in CMYK format. Please keep in
mind that low resolution images (mainly JPG, PNG or GIF files acquired from websites) will NOT reproduce well.

Artwork will look different from one monitor to the next so color perception will differ considerably. Please be
aware that printed material may not match emailed proofs exactly.

If you know your organizations Pantone number, that is extremely helpful when it comes to accuracy in color
matching.

Bag Tags: Laminated Style

The original Tag Up bag tag. Printed in full color with UV resistant ink and sealed inside of a 14 mil thick rectangle pouch. Graphics are printed and cut to size – there is no bleed required on laminated style tags.

Bag Tags: Profile Style

Graphics are typically kept within a 4” x 4” area. Special consideration if the tag runs extra wide (for instance, we have done 7” wide tags, but they were only 2.5” tall). There are no limits in regards to the shape, but we stray away from super tight, rigid corners. The red below is a visual illustration as to where the graphics would be represented on the tag. Please keep the ‘loop hole’ in mind when designing your own graphics – it is a necessity, and we don’t want to cut off any important information.

Custom graphics on BOTH SIDES of the tag. Choose symmetrical (round / square / triangle / oval / rectangle / etc)
or asymmetrical (custom shape to your logo / customer choice).

Locker Nameplates: Standard Shape

Standard locker designs are pretty straightforward. In the illustration shown below is for a 2” x 10” locker nameplate, but the margins, etc are applicable to all standard size locker plates. Always add .2” to size of locker nameplate for bleed.

If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to reach out to us: 800-528-0828 or sales@tag-up.com

NOTE: There are several mounting options for standard locker nameplates.

  • Bracket (Black, Polished
  • Silver, Satin Silver, Rose Gold, Yellow Gold)
  • Velcro Dots
  • Magnet
  • Tape (Repositionable or Permanent)
  • Extended Mount (ask your sales rep for details)

Locker Nameplates: Profile Shape

Profile locker nameplates will all vary in size and shape. The size you desire is based on the rectangular part of the plate; the ‘profile’ extension
is above and beyond that measurement. Again for sample purposes, a 2×10 size is used as an example. Typically these plates will slide into a bracket, but can also mount with magnet, velcro dots or tape. Design plate with .1” bleed on all edges.

Keep in mind the total spacial area you have available for the locker nameplate. The overall dimensions will be larger than your actual locker
plate size. If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to reach out to us: 800-528-0828 or sales@tag-up.com

Custom Medals

All medals come with custom graphics printed to vinyl on the face of the medal. Finishes and sizes are noted below. Drape are included with purchase of medals. If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to reach out to us: 800-528-0828 or sales@tag-up.com

Standard Drape Colors Available:

Dry Erase Boards: Sideline Boards

Sideline boards come in standard sizes of 9”x12” | 12”x18” | 18”x24” (with or without handle) | 24”x36” (with or without handle)

These are the final dimensions of the board. Graphics are trimmed to .5” smaller than final size. (ex 8.5” x 11.5” for 9 x 12 board)
For boards with handle, handle is centered on top edge 1” from edge of vinyl. Hole size is 3.75” x 1.6”.
