Art Guidelines

Preferred Screen Printed Art Files:
Silkscreened Jobs need to be VECTOR
1. Macromedia Freehand MX (convert type to paths)
2. Adobe Illustrator CS5 (convert type to outlines)
3. Pdf ( If created with a vector program)
4. Corel Draw 11 (convert type to curves)
5. DWG or DXF (Most likely will occur artwork fee to convert to workable art)

If any of these vector programs contain imported or placed images (pixel-bitmap-tiff-jpeg etc..) please include those file separately,
in addition to the vector file even if the files are embedded.

If the artwork is multi-colored, spot or PMS colors, must be specified unless the final print is to be CYMK (process) or Digi Print.

Always send color print or hardcopy of final design along with order.

Preferred Digicolor Printed Art Files:
Digicolor Jobs need to be RASTER-PIXEL-BITMAP
Best for photographic or an abundance of color.
1. Adobe Photoshop CS5
