File Formats

 We prefer the following vector formats in the order printed: AI, EPS, PDF

 

and if you must JPG, TIF, BMP, but remember the resolution must be sufficiently good for large format work.  

Supported Software Applications

Preferred Applications: Any version of Illustrator CC or earlier, Photoshop CC or earlier, SignLab 9.1 or earlier

Color Space: Please use Adobe 1998 RGB color space, we prefer to to the RGB-CMYK conversion ourself. 

Other Applications: Please export your files in a format that can be opened by the above applications OR a) in an EPS format OR b) if using CorelDraw, export as Adobe Illustrator (.ai). 

Fonts: Where possible ALL text should be converted to outlines/paths/curves in your design software thus preventing your font inadvertently being replaced with a similar one. Please include a copy of your file in .jpg format to double check for font substitution

Bleed: Remember to include sufficient image area on all edges where images bleed (print over the edge)

Scale: Please scale artwork to 100 dpi at final output size. If your design software can not handle final output size, scale to 50% and make a note of scale inside the file.

Special Colors: We will try to match any special colors your request as closely as possible, but be aware that some Pantone colors are not exactly achievable by the CMYK process. If precise color matching is essential, please request an actual printed proof for color verification. Proofs are $75 ea. For more info on color matching please read this.
