On March 28, 2014, we successfully funded a Kickstarter campaign. Nearly 800 backers contributed over $50,000. It was rad.
We're working hard to refine our production process. Please make sure to take the survey you received from firstname.lastname@example.org, so we can get you your watches ASAP
Please refer to these guidelines below when sending in your designs.
The better the file that you can send us, the better it will look on your watch. Please send us a square image of at least 400px by 400px. Even bigger would be great!
Please send your designs / art / photographs to us in any of the following formats: .jpeg, .png, .tiff, .pdf, or .ai If you can, please set the color mode to CMYK.
We include a bleed zone that will get cut off when we print onto our face plates, so be sure not to put anything important along the edges and corners! Bleed = 1/8"
Remember, there are hands in the center! Unless it's intended, be careful about centering your image. <-- We call this the propeller nose effect.
On the topic of cropping ... Consider the photography rule of thumb, or "rule of thirds." Place your subjects or points of interest (like faces) at the intersections or on the lines that divide the canvas in thirds to make things more visually dynamic!
Dark, fine and subtle textures may get washed out. Bold and bright will show best.
If you have Adobe Illustrator and are planning to design your *own* Modify Watch, you can download the templates on the right. The guides are set up to indicate the live area. Please fill the entire art board with your art so we have enough ‘bleed’ to make sure we capture all edges. You’ll see a ‘Please your artwork here’ layer. Not to state the obvious, but place your art on that layer :) The template with the hands and cut is there to help you design, please place the finished file into the appropriate .pdf template or in one of the formats listed above.
If you have any questions, or have trouble preparing files, please contact us and we'll work something out.
And finally, if all of this is far too complicated, simply email us the file, and we’ll prep it for you!
