ClearWater Gear requires vector based art files, like the ones used in Illustrator (usually the files ending with .ai .eps .pdf). Please make sure all fonts are saved as outlines and all images are embedded. If no vector format exists, Photoshop files (.psd .jpeg .tiff .gif .bmp) may be submitted for reference and virtual proofs, but will not substitute for vector artwork. All files MUST be Mac compatible. Absolutely NO CorelDraw (.crd), Publisher (.pub) or PowerPoint (.ppt) files.
VECTOR VS. RASTER
For best print quality, ClearWater Gear needs Vector art, not Raster. Vector files typically end with .Ai or .Eps , while Raster image files end with .Jpg or .Png. Vector art has the ability to increase size without becoming blurred or pixilated. Vector art is also able to be manipulated for color separating purposes. Artwork does not become Vector by opening and saving it into a vector based program. If you do not have Vector artwork, in most cases we can redraw the art and an additional art fee may apply. This art fee will be assessed once the artist documents the amount of time it's taken them to redraw. For further details regarding this fee, please email your sales representative.

On the advice of countless breweries, wineries and bars in the region, we've been working with Clearwater Gear since opening day at Mountain Lakes... and we wouldn't work with anyone else.

Clearwater Gear was fantastic to work with! This was our first order and we could not be more pleased with both the service from Josh and Jackie, and the quality of the product. I ordered 288 pint glasses for our golf course and they look awesome. Thank you Clearwater Gear, you have a customer for life.
Thank you for everything. You guys nailed the design. I have been extremely satisfied with CWG customer service. You guys rock! I have sent numerous new clients your direction and will continue to spread the word. Shipping is so fast and not too expensive as well. Cheers!
