Vector Art Requirements

True vector file formats accepted - .ai or pdf (preferred), .eps

  • Text must be converted to outlines/paths.
  • All spot colors should be specifically identified. (PMS - Pantone Solid Coated preferred)

Unacceptable (Raster) file formats - .jpg, .png, .tif, .bmp, .gif

Exceptions - we can accept high resolution (600 dpi) raster graphics for projects with digital/full color prints.

Raster vs Vector Files

Raster images are based on pixels and result in loss of detail when expanded

Vector images are created using specific software (typically Adobe Illustrator) and use mathematic equations with points or lines to create artwork files that do not result in loss of quality when scaled or expanded

* If you need your file converted/created in true vector we will need to evaluate the raster version of your logo/file first to determine if we can work with it. If we can, the charge is a minimum of $25.00 per file and will be quoted and require approval prior to vectorizing the file.
