How to submit print-ready art
Typically, we prefer vector art whenever possible. You have more control over the final product if you send the art at the size you want it printed and colored with the PANTONE Solid Coated colors you want. If you're art is not properly sized and colored, we'll use our best judgement and you can verify or change our decisions on your digital proof. Vector Art usually comes in a .ai .eps or .pdf file.
If you're artwork is raster art, it needs to be at least 300dpi at the size you want to print. For example, if you're print is going to be 12 inches wide, and 1 inch tall, the art needs to be at least 3600 pixels wide and at least 300 pixels tall. We prefer transparent backgrounds, and preserved layers whenever possible. Again, if you know what PANTONE Solid Coated colors you want to use, and what size you want the print to be, let us know in the email or in the file itself. Raster art file types are listed from most to least preferable as follows: .psd .tiff .png .jpg .pdf .bmp .gif
If your art will take us more than 1/2 hour to prepare for print, you may incur an art fee. We will always let you know how your art is deficient before we take steps to correct it for print, giving you an estimate for that cost and a chance to resubmit adjusted artwork if you want to correct it independently.
