Please note the following when preparing electronic art files that you will be sending to us for signage. We support the PC platform and most commonly used graphics software. Files can be saved in their native format as follows:
.EPS Vector file of any type, includingIllustrator
.AI – Adobe Illustrator
.CDR – Corel Draw
.WMF – Windows Metafile
Whenever possible, send artwork as vector art. Please “Convert Fonts to Outlines” or “Convert Fonts to Curves”, this allows for easy scaling and color corrections. When using Postscript fonts (Type 1 fonts), please supply both screen and printer fonts.
Bitmap / Digital Printing File Requirements
Please note the following when preparing electronic art files for printing that you will be sending to us. Your artwork must be “FULL SIZE” at 72 dpi (dots per inch).
Files can be saved in their native format as follows:
.EPS of any type, including Illustrator and PhotoShop
.AI – Adobe Illustrator
.PSD – PhotoShop
.PDF – Adobe Acrobat
.TIFF – Tagged Image File Format
.CDR – CorelDraw, any format (v. 10)
PMS – Pantone Spot Colors
If you want specific color matches, then PMS Pantone Spot colors must be specified within the file and on your hard copy proof. We will match PMS colors as closely as possible, although we may not be able to color correct embedded / placed art files.
If color matches are not specified then we will assume that exact color matching is not critical!
Fonts / Typestyles
Be sure to include all fonts used in your artwork. Whenever possible send artwork as vector art. Please “Convert Fonts to Outlines” or “Convert Fonts to Curves”, this allows for easy scaling and color corrections. When using Postscript fonts (Type 1 fonts) please supply both screen and printer fonts.
Scanned images should be scanned at no less than 300 dpi (dots per inch) at 1/4 size of the final printed piece. Remember that resolution goes down by same factor as the enlargement you request. A 300 dpi original enlarged to five times the original size will have a finished resolution of 60 dpi.
