The only form of artwork we can accept as print ready are vector graphic images saved as Adobe Illustrator (our preferred type), EPS with all text converted to curves (or outlines) with layers maintained or Adobe Photoshop files with each color in its own layer (Adobe Photoshop files must be at high resolution and sent in desired print dimensions) . We are PC based, so Mac only files are not acceptable. Other file types may be subject to an art charge.
We can accept Tiff, JPG, BMP, GIF, and most other graphics file types, but these may not be considered print ready and could require our art department to rework them in order to make them useable. All raster artwork (.jpg, .bmp, .gif, etc) should be sent actual size. If you wish the image to be printed at 10" across, the image you send should be 10" across. We cannot correct for low resolution or poor scanning. Resolution should not be lower than 300dpi.
We cannot accept artwork done using word processor programs like Word, presentation programs such as PowerPoint, or page layout programs such as Publisher.
Graphics cannot be screen printed larger than 15" wide and 16" tall.
