Art Requirements

What type of files do you accept?

File types accepted include .ai, .cdr, .eps, .tif, .psd. Created in Corel Draw, Adobe Illustrator, Freehand, or Adobe Photoshop.
Vector files (i.e. .ai, .cdr, .eps), files comprised of outlines not pixels, are preferred for all submitted artwork. We also accept raster (i.e. .tif, .psd, .png), however, keep in mind the final printed size of your artwork.

All submissions must be in CMYK, not RGB.

Are there dimension requirements?

Yes, all artwork must be a minimum of 300dpi. The required dimensions will depend on the product you are ordering. Additional charges may apply if raster artwork does not meet requirements.

What about fonts?

To avoid font issues, all lettering should be changed to outlines or flattened.

Raster Art vs Vector Art

If you zoom in on a raster image, you will notice that the edges become more pixelated. This is because most images (JPEG, JPG, PNG, BMP, etc.) are rasterized to allow for manipulation of the image. A raster image is made up of pixels, with each pixel having only one color. This means that if you have fewer pixels in your image, you will have lesser color and a low quality image.

A vector image, in simple terms, are collections of lines and anchor points that make up the entire image. These anchor points and lines are manipulated through mathematical calculations (done by design software), which make the image scalable to any size.
