Artwork Requirements

Artwork may be provided as hard copy, disk drive or sent via email. Artwork will need to be submitted with your order #.

A Note about Digital Artwork

Your Finished Job is only as good as the artwork you provide. Web Graphics are generally unacceptable because they are normally only 72 dpi. If you need help, we can clean up your artwork and or generate new graphics at your request.

Image Resolution

Your Image Resolution should generally be a minimum of 300 dpi and 5” x 5” in size for good reproduction on the finished product.

IBM vs Mac

We work in an IBM environment. Our computers do not like anything that is Mac. If your art files are created on a Mac System, please convert everything to a vector file.


For the majority of our products, color will be assigned to your product with Color Transfer Technology that works best with RGB file Formats. Generally, we can accomplish a good (close) match to the colors you submit from the artfile you provide, however we can get closer if you can provide us with RGB-PMS colors.

We cannot provide perfect color matches.

Preferred Bitmap Formats

.tiff / .bmp / .jpg / .gif
