Why does my art proof look different than the art I had submitted?
This could be for a number of reasons, but typically this is to accommodate your art to our printing press. We are obligated to getting you the best looking sleeve possible, and sometimes to do so, we may need to tweak your art slightly in order for the final product to look as accurate as possible to your original art.

Do you offer custom art design?
Unfortunately we can’t make a logo for you, but we’re more than happy to add any verbiage (drink check boxes, social media logos, coupons, contact information, etc.) you’d like to see on your custom Java Jacket ®.
