A designer will review your artwork and advise you if adjustments are required for the process you have selected. Additional charges may apply if changes to your artwork are necessary.
Vector art is the required format for all engraved products. UV Color Logo products, Mighty Badges™, and Reusable Name Plates require vector art for printing on all material colors other than white. A high quality bitmap image may be acceptable for these same products if using white material, or for all Digitally Printed Full Color products.
Vector Files: Adobe® Illustrator (.ai), CorelDRAW (.cdr), PostScript (.eps)
Bitmap (Raster) Files: Image Files (.jpg , .gif, .png, .tif, .bmp), Photo-Paint (.ppt), Photoshop (.psd)
Image files that are embedded in a .doc or .pdf file may also be accepted if the embedded file is a vector file or high quality bitmap file.
It is not possible to convert a low quality image into a vector file simply by saving it in a vector format. When this is attempted, the low quality image is simply embedded in the new file and no conversion takes place. It is not possible to change a low quality image to a higher quality one simply by saving it with higher DPI settings. The image will have more dots per inch, but the quality will remain the same or even degrade further.
For your convenience, we offer an artwork clean-up/conversion process for $30 per image. You will be charged for this service even if an order is not completed. You may request the new file be sent to you upon payment of your order. Turn around time is 24 hours and expedited production is not available.
We welcome the use of PMS colors to communicate the colors you would like but do not guarantee a color match.
