Art Requirements


Digital Art Requirements for spot color printing.

Minimum specifications are required to achieve good print results. Please follow the instructions below. If you need help creating art, please visit art services.

Digital artwork must be submitted in accepted formats only.
  • All files must be in .EPS format.
  • All fonts must be converted to outlines.
  • All colors must be converted to spot colors with correct Pantone numbers.
  • Please submit files with images SIZED for printing.
  • Compress large files (over 20 MB) using Stuff-it or Winzip.
  • Flatten all files.
  • Send additional .JPG version of file to communicate color representation if file does not display color the way you want it printed.
Applications Accepted:
  • ADOBE ILLUSTRATOR - our preferred file format. Create outlines for fonts. Save as .EPS
  • FREEHAND - Convert text to paths. Save as .EPS.
  • COREL DRAW - Convert text to paths. Save as .AI file.
  • ADOBE PHOTOSHOP - Should be used only for photographic images, not great for type or logos.
  • QUARK - Must include all font files and placed images.
Placing a scanned image (or an image created in another program) into an Illustrator file does not make the file a vector image.

Applications NOT Accepted:
The following programs do not allow us to create proper separations:
  • POWERPOINT
  • WORD or any word processing program.


Digital Art Requirements for process color printing.

Minimum specifications are required to achieve good print results. Please follow the instructions below. If you need help creating art, please visit art services.

Adobe Photoshop is the standard for photographic digital imaging.
  • Files should be presented in photoshop, .PICT, .TIFF or .EPS formats only.
  • NO .GIF or .JPG files for separation purposes. Send additional .JPG version of file to communicate color representation if file does not display color the way you want it printed.
  • Resolutions should be between 200 - 300 dpi at initial creation of file.
  • Send a printed color hard copy to use as a "target" in the separation process since all monitors are different.
  • Please submit files with images SIZED for printing.
  • Compress large files (over 20 MB) using Stuff-it or Winzip.
  • Flatten all files.
