Uploading Your Artwork
For optimal printing results we request your artwork is provided in a vector format for company logos and detailed artwork and raster format for photographs.
Please read the guide below to establish which formats you currently have:
Vector files – E.g – Company Logos – (Ai File – Adobe Illustrator, pdf vector, eps vector)
These are the preferred file types for company logos and detailed designs. Vector files can be scaled and modified easily without losing print quality. Please supply your vector with a transparent background. If you do not have this format then request the files from your graphic designer. If this is not possible then send us any files you do have.
Raster files – E.g – Photographs – (jpg, tiff, psd, gif, bmp)
These are the preferred file types for photographs. The artwork should be at least print size and 300 dpi. If they are not provided this way, we cannot guarantee the print quality will match your original image. We understand you may not require the highest resolution (order may be one-off event.) However, please provide your best images.
How can I tell if my artwork is in vector format?
If you zoom into a vector, you will not see jagged or pixelated edges. If you zoom into other file types (raster files) such as a jpg, tiff, psd, gif, bmp the image and edges will become pixelated and jagged.
Please note: You cannot simply save a raster file (for instance saving a JPG as PDF) to convert it into a vector format. This will not work or be usable and liable for a re-draw fee.
Embedding fonts and converting fonts to paths / curves.
If your logo / artwork contains a font or any type faces, then these MUST be converted to paths or curves (in some software packages) This simply means that the font is converted to a graphic object. If this is not done, then when we receive the file and don’t have the equivalent font, we won’t be able to match your artwork. Please provide the font files and names used to create your artwork.
