Art Requirements

Providing your own design file?

The following guidelines are presented to reduce the risk of slowing down the production of your job. Please contact us with any questions you have concerning artwork submission. We will be more than happy to help you get the image quality you need.

NOTE: If we are creating the design for you from scratch don’t worry about these concerns as we will take care of them for you.


Acceptable file formats (In order of preference):

1. Adobe® Illustrator® (.AI) (.EPS) – Vector artwork. Convert all fonts to outlines. If file contains Photoshop® images do not embed images. Include all high-resolution images with artwork. Please send layered files ONLY.

2. Adobe® Photoshop® (.PSD) (.TIF) – Only recommended for Photoshop® images. Please send layered files ONLY. All Photoshop® files must be created at FULL IMAGE SIZE at 72 dpi. Jpegs are only accepted if they are high res format and we are doing the art for you. Otherwise .PSD or .TIFs will only be accepted.

Please note the following:

1. Fonts needed: All fonts used in your artwork must be included with your artwork files or converted to outlines.

2. Links needed: ALL IMAGES that are placed into your artwork must be included.

3. Color Printouts: Please include a color printout.

4. Include PMS (Pantone Matching System) Colors:
We strongly suggest that you select and assign PMS colors to your artwork. Please select your colors from the Pantone Solid Coated color book. If you use a 4-color mix we will need to match it to the closest Pantone color to produce your art. Colors should not be specified as CMYK percentages, as these may not reproduce the exact color desired. If PMS color selection is not possible please provide physical sample (color proof or swatch) for color matching purposes.

5. All Black in your art must be converted to this CMYK mixture: C:80 M:72 Y:68 K:100 if Blacks are not in this 4 color mixture, art charges will apply to convert them to this mixture.

6. Resolution/Scan Guidelines:
If your artwork is a Photoshop® image, it needs to be 72 dpi at FULL SIZE. Full Size means if the image in your artwork is 40 x 80 the image in the Photoshop® file must be 40 x 80. If you are working in 10% scale, please refer to the scale below for your dpi requirements.

100% scale = 72 dpi
10% scale = 720 dpi
