A note about Digital Artwork 

Production delays can occur when digital artwork is provided in the wrong format.  Much time can be lost with efforts to convert files that are submitted without following the informational guidelines below.  Please contact us if you have any questions about the suitability of your digital files or any of our format requirements.

Artwork is only as good as you provide.  Simply because the art file is saved as and EPS or TIFF format doesn’t not mean it will be clean and useable.  Art that has been scanned or reproduced numerous times will not improve and will not look its best without additional clean-up efforts.  We reserve the right to refuse any artwork that will not meet our standards of product quality when reproduced with our equipment and processes.

 Vector Art Preferred

Vector art is comprised of nodes and anchor points that control the lines/curves that make up the objects shape.  These files are optimal because they maintain smooth edges/consistency while being adjusted for award layouts.

 Bitmap files are acceptable but should be no lower than 300 dpi (600 dpi is preferred).  The term “dpi” refers to how many “dots per inch” that make up the image file.  Internet artwork is created for monitor viewing (72 dpi) and is not generally considered acceptable artwork. 

Preferred Programs 

Adobe Illustrator - Vector based artwork (save as .ai or .eps and convert all text to outlines)

Adobe Reader - PDF files

SVG files

Image Resolution 

For non-vector images, image resolution should be a minimum of 300 dpi at 100% imprint size for best reproduction.    

Font Information 

Convert all text to outlines or curves.  Please be aware that once this is done, the text in your artwork can no longer be edited.  If editing is required, we will substitute your font with the closest match we have in our library.  We do not have every font that is available.

File Information 

File name included in the file extension (i.e. filename.eps)            


When assigning a color to art or text, please use a Pantone Solid Coated PMS number.

Accepted File Storage Media  

If you choose to mail or overnight your artwork to us, please use PC formatted CD ROM, DVD, and USB Drive 


Following these instructions does not guarantee the art will output. If any of the above is not possible, please send in Camera Ready Art (film or slick), 600 dpi or greater. 
Artwork will be billed at $60.00 per hour. Minimum art charge is $15.00
