Artwork Specifications:

Software and Files: Vectorised Artwork (illustrator .eps, .ai files). Files of this type are ideal for the correct printing and
reproduction of your logo. A vector graphic is a file that is created in programs like Illustrator & CorelDraw and is usually saved as eps or PDF. The artwork is created using points and curves.

 
Illustrator: Text to be converted to outlines to avoid font problems. Placed images to be either embedded or supplied as separate files. The preferred file type for most jobs is an .ai or eps file. These files allow us to accurately manipulate logos and the elements which they are comprised of, to resize without any loss of quality or accuracy.
 

Photoshop: Minimum resolution 300dpi, size at 100%. Save file as CMYK, Tiff or EPS. Jpeg files are okay for embroidery, but they may have to be redrawn for printing and engraving use. A high res jpg file can also be used for printing digital or offset printing jobs, though it is not a preferred file type.
 

PDF: Although original files are preferred you can supply a PDF as artwork. Images to be high resolution 300dpi when placed at 100% and any text converted to outlines. Images must be embedded in the PDF. A pdf file is fine for embroidery but we sometimes we have to redraw a
pdf logo if printing or engraving is required.
 

Doc Files and Text Files: Microsoft files can be worked with, but they are the least desirable file. If it’s simple we may be able to work with it. A complex logo will need to be re-illustrated to an eps file. We do what we can to redraw logos when we receive basic files. But it is time consuming
task, and if your logo is difficult we have to charge to re-illustrate your logo.
 

Fonts: Any fonts used must be supplied or converted to outlines/curves to avoid font problems.
 
Electronic art supplied on CD or Zip must come with a colour proof which is indicative of the final product. Wherever possible we request PMS colour references‚Ä®/ numbers are supplied.
