A NOTE ABOUT DIGITAL ARTWORK
Production delays can occur when digital artwork is provided in the wrong format. Much time can be lost with efforts to convert files that are submitted without following the information guidelines below. Please contact us if you have any questions about the suitability of your digital files or any of our format requirements.
It is HIGHLY RECOMMENDED that you also mail or fax a hard copy of the artwork and any special instructions. Please indicate your Order Number on the artwork if you know it.
Artwork is only as good as you provide. Simply because the art file is an EPS or TIFF format does not mean it will be clean and useable. Faxed, scanned or art which has been reproduced numerous times will not improve and will not look its best without additional clean up efforts. Please do not submit web graphics as they are produced in a resolution setting (generally 96 dpi) that is too low for our processes to reproduce attractively.
We reserve the right to refuse any artwork that will not meet our standards of product quality when reproduced with our equipment and processes.
CoralDraw 11.0 or earlier – PC format

Convert all text to outlines or curves. Please be aware that once this is done the text in your artwork can no longer be edited. If editing is required you must include the Font (TrueType only) with the file.
WE DO NOT HAVE EVERY FONT THAT IS AVAILABLE.

When assigning a color to art or text, please use a PMS color. This will work for process or spot colors.
