Artwork Guidelines

Resolution is the amount of detail available in an image, directly effecting picture quality.
It is measured by dots per inch (DPI) or pixels per inch (PPI).
Resolution Requirements
(Raster Images - JPG, TIFF, PNG, PS, PSD, GIF)
  • All logos must be at least 1" x 1" at 300 DPI (dots or pixels per inch) resolution to print well. Images pulled from a website are usually 72 DPI and are not an acceptable resolution for print. Printing these images will result in blurry and/or pixilated artwork.
  • NOTE: Resolution can not be raised! Pulling a image from a website and trying to increase the resolution will not work. Increasing resolution will result in blurring the pixels making your final print blurry.
Scanning Images
  • Scanned images should hold the same properties as resolution requirements.
  • Set your settings to scan your images at print size and at least 300 DPI resolution.
  • NOTE: Resolution can not be raised! Pulling a image from a website and trying to increase the resolution will not work. Increasing resolution will result in blurring the pixels making your final print blurry.
Vector Artwork / Art Files
  • Vector files can be resized to any size without becoming blurry or pixilated.
  • These files usually come in .SVG, PDF, AI, EPS, CDR and are also considered LINE ART
  • Art submitted in one of the noted formats above does NOT mean the file is true vector. Bitmap/raster images can also be saved under this format.
  • Any artwork submitted in vector format needs to have all fonts and line thicknesses converted to outlines. Submitting a file that is not converted will cause the fonts to be lost/changed and lines to become more thick or thin.
Publisher and Powerpoint Files
  • Are NOT accepted.
  • Your file can easily be saved as a PDF
      
Image/File Borders
  • All files will be cut with a WHITE border unless there is a "BLEED".
  • What is a "BLEED"? Bleed is when an image extends past the trim edge.
