Artwork Requirements

Acceptable Forms of Artwork Include:

1.  Vector Art:  These art files are scalable and once created will look the same on a business card as they will on a billboard.  *Please convert all text to outlines, curves, or paths*

  • .eps Encapsulated Postscript – Saved from a vector based program i.e. Illustrator
  • .pdf Adobe Acrobat Reader – This format works well for both vector and high resolution raster files.  We do not accept multi-page pdfs on one file.
  • .ai Adobe Illustrator – CS6 or lower

2.  Raster Art:  Raster or Bitmap files are pixel-based and can often appear “jagged” if the resolution is not high enough.

  • .jpg Hi-Resolution (100 dpi actual size, saved as RGB) *This is the preferred method for full color signs and banners*

Unacceptable forms of artwork include:

  • Raster Files:  .gif, .wmf, .bmp, low resolution jpg, (any of the above saved as a eps);  
  • Programs: Quark, Paint, Publisher, and greeting card software
  • Any internet art being used on a website
  • Licensed logos of sports teams

Please keep in mind artwork pulled off the internet is not acceptable and will result in the images being pixelated when enlarged.
