    Howdy,

    as with most shops the design stage is the bottle neck of the process and we are looking at ways to speed it.

    The designer has been in contact with Digital Art Solutions and has been impressed with what they are showing.

    Has anyone used this company and or do you know of a like company that you prefer?

    Thanks,

    We use a lot of their stuff for grabbing elements here and there. Their display books are helpful to clients to look through to get an idea of what look they may be after.

    DAS has some really good quality production friendly clipart. Tad on the expensive side, but it's good stuff.

    When clients want quality, but want it quick and a concerned with budget, I'll use their stuff and digitize for embroidery. They typically have 3 versions of the clip art ranging from simple to detailed (for them) and even the detailed ones I'm usually able to get into a 100mm x 100mm design field.

    I looked at their stuff in Indy last week and ordered their design studio - it looks really straight forward, tons of features, templates and clip art included as well as a bunch of overlays - instructional videos AND - best of all, I have a single phone number to call a single person for any questions I might have.

    you might want to check out Action Illustrated as well. I think it is just as good and better pricing on most of it.

    Suggest you also look at going to either ISS shows or NBM shows. you can see the programs in person and usually get better deals

    I do the Embroidery Mart show here in Nashville and DAS does usually run deals there and I think they are running one right now for the clip art collections. I think it's jut a BOGO type of deal though.

    Any idea if ACTION ILLUSTRATED and DIGITAL ART SOLUTIONS are the same company, different divisions?

    It's possible, both Fax numbers even have 480 area codes. They both are selling to the same specific market (apparel decorators it looks like).

    Prices are roughly similar.

    They are different companies. From what I understand, action illustrated was formed from a previous employee of DAS that had some disagreements with them.

    True - we got ours at the NBM show prices and it's considerably cheaper.

    Yep, that it can. I know of one other disagreement that led up to a formation of a competing company.
