Camera-ready artwork is any professionally prepared black and white rendering of your logo, emblem, line art or copy. The quality of your imprint depends upon the quality of artwork supplied to us! Artwork can be submitted via E-Mail, by Mail on disk (3.5 or CD) or FTP (File Transfer Protocol). Laser copies of 1200 DPI resolution are also acceptable.   

Artwork can be accepted from the following programs:

  • Adobe Illustrator - AI 9 or higher
  • Photoshop - All EPS, TIFF files (layered if possible). They must be 600 dpi or higher at 100% of final size or larger.

Please Note: Vector Art is preferred. It provides the best quality and allows images to be resized without loss of sharpness and detail.
