Art Requirements

Prefered File Types

Vector art in .ai .eps or .pdf are the preferred file types.  They are scalable without quality degradation and have the highest quality output.  All type & strokes must be converted to outlines. No raster elements may be present to meet this standard.  If raster images are present, they must be embedded and of high enough resolution to meet the intended print output. Any art files with raster images must be submitted to determine print readiness.

Corel Draw & Freehand files must be exported as .eps files. All files should have the graphics and fonts converted to outlines/curves. Placed or linked images are not acceptable.

Raster File Types

Raster art file types, such as .psd, .jpg, .tif, .png may be used for some types of printing but must meet print requirements of the intended output.  These file types must be submitted to determine print readiness. Any raster graphics submitted without transparent backgrounds may require art services to make print ready.

Microsoft documents, such as Word, Powerpoint and Publisher, are not acceptable as print-ready but may be used as layouts if print ready art needs to be created.
