Art files will not qualify for personalization unless the art file is the same throughout the entire order, with Gold Bond adding straight line text to the product as specified above. Personalizations must be sent to Gold Bond Inc. in an Excel File (e.g. column 1 first name, and column 2 last name). Available fonts for use are Helvetica Neue LT Std, Script MT Bold, Times New Roman, Arial, Myriad Pro, and Century. If another font is needed, contact us so we can evaluate possible options.
