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.
Yes, all artwork must be a minimum of 600dpi. The required dimensions will depend on the product you are ordering. Additional charges may apply if raster artwork does not meet requirements.
To avoid font issues, all lettering should be changed to outlines or flattened.
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, without loss of quality.
