Here, we walk you through the important steps involved in designing a kit, such as use of colors, logos.
The process can be a lot of fun as you watch your vision come to life, and our team of experienced designers will be closely involved every step of the way.
We are serious about color and take every step to ensure what you expect is what gets printed.
Castelli allows for exact matches of any color you can come with. We don’t want to restrict your creativity.
If you have a garment you want to match the colors of, you can send it to us.
If not, choose colors from our colors chart or from a Pantone book. This ensures we are both referencing the exact same color to start the process.
Don’t rely on what you see on screen to choose colors as it can vary from screen to screen and from screen to print.
We are happy to offer a printed proof when deemed necessary.
Submit your logos and wordmarks in vector format (.eps, Adobe Illustrator, .ai, editable .pdf’s)
Vector art ensures we can scale and recolor them accurately in production.
Raster images (.png, .jpg, .tiff) are not accepted.
We will advise you about the minimum scale for line required and text to print legibly.
Please make sure to read the logo user guide.
If you have a designer, they can download our line art templates and place art directly on them.
If you don’t have a designer, no problem. Send us any inspiration or ideas you have. Even napkin sketches are welcome. Head up to our page Get Inspired if you want to take a glimpse of what other teams created.
We will review everything sent and respond with designs on our line art templates with art and logo placement suggestions.
The inspiration for kit design can come from just about anywhere, but sometimes the hardest part is simply finding a starting point. With that in mind, we’ve put together some pictures of some teams we worked with as inspirations. We hope it’s a useful jumping-off point that will help get you inspired, excited, and off to a great start.
REVISE & APPROVE
Look carefully over the designs and give us any feedback.
We strive to limit the revisions to 3 cycles to help expedite your order process.
After all, revisions are complete, we send the final design for your approval.
When you are satisfied with the final design, give us a thumbs up and we can get rolling into production as soon as possible!
