Vector Art created using Adobe
Illustrator is preferred. It provides the best
quality and allows images to be
resized without loss of sharpness
and detail. If vector files cannot
be supplied and redrawing is
required on any or all of the
components, another day needs to be
added to the production time.
The quality of
your imprint depends upon the
quality of artwork supplied to us!
All orders requiring artwork must be
sent in as Black and White CAMERA
READY vector art. Artwork can be
submitted via E-Mail, on CD or FTP
(File Transfer Protocol). Laser
copies of 1200 DPI resolution are
also acceptable. Whether you are
Mac or PC based, we are able to
accept your graphic files if you
meet the requirements listed. To
ensure this and avoid delays or art
charges please adhere to our
