Print Ready Art

Providing correct artwork is one of the most important factors to producing a high quality print.

All artwork must
Be a vector image or a minimum of 300dpi if you do not have a vector image available
Be sized to the correct size for print
Be labeled with correct Pantone® Solid Coated colors
Have all text converted to outlines
Vector Files (.ai .eps) Strongly Recommended*
It is required that you convert all text to outlines, if you don’t, the font will not be the same as the one you chose for your design.
Size artwork to the correct size for print.
Embed any linked files, but also provide the support file separately.
Raster images placed within vector art must be 300dpi and sized to print size.
Convert all colors in your artwork to spot colors. Label each swatch with the corresponding Pantone® Solid Coated color, or choose one from the Pantone® Solid Coated color book.
Raster Files (.psd .jpg .png)
Files must be 300dpi and sized to the correct size for print. A file that is 72dpi can not be changed to 300dpi to meet requirements. All raster images must be submitted in their original color space (RGB or CMYK). Please do not convert from one to the other. RGB color space is recommended for full process orders.

PDF files must retain full editing capabilities as the program they were created in. PDF files must meet all guidelines listed for raster and vector images.
