This is a “scalable” file. No matter what size we make it, the artwork’s edge quality is always clean and crisp. Multi color designs should be “Spot” colors with colors identified with a Solid Coated Pantone number. Files that require spot separation will incur additional charges. Please check to make sure unintended overprints and trapping are not applied.
All fonts should be converted to outlines or included when sending the art file. Font substitution is available for an additional charge and may not be exact.
File Types: PDF files preferred. Adobe Illustrator, Corel Draw EPS, Freehand EPS or other vector art file types in PS, EPS or PDF formats. Also Photoshop PSD files with Smart Objects.
This type of file is composed of pixels (dots) and must be at least 100% the size of the art as it will be printed or bigger. Minimum resolution is 300 dpi (dots per inch). This type of file can be made smaller, but suffers quality loss when enlarged. Bitmapped files should be saved at either 50% Threshold, or a halftone screen of 65 lpi at a 70 degree angle. Multi-color Raster Art will be separated as an index or process job (CMYK) unless spot separations have been made in channels or on separate layers. Files that require index, process or spot separation will incur additional charges. If layers contain type, please rasterize the layer or include fonts with the artwork.
File Types: Adobe Photoshop, Adobe Photoshop EPS or PDF. High resolution TIF, JPEG, or PNG files.
Camera Ready art prefered.This includes linographic output or outlined art with colors indicated and/or color comp provided. All customer supplied art which is not considered Camera Ready will incur additional art charges. Art should be hi-density black ink on white or very light colored media. Paintings, pencil drawings or sketches will require additional art time to make print-ready. Multi color designs should have Pantone Solid Coated colors called out on the artwork or on a separate color comp. Color matching is available at an additional charge. Photos should be clear and as close to final print size as possible.
It is highly recommended that trademarked logos be submitted only as camera ready art or electronically as an vector file.
All camera ready artwork art is scanned and reproduced for spot color separation and made ready for film output. Maximum scanning area is 12 X 16 in. Please be sure to specifiy the desired final image size when providing reduced art. Larger images can be scanned in sections and tiled for output.
