Distributor Tools


Vector artwork is preferred and is the industry standard. Applications that provide these files include: Adobe® Illustrator and CorelDraw®. Common file extensions include .ai, .pdf, .eps and .cdr. Fonts incorporated in vector artwork must be converted to outline paths.

High-resolution, rasterized art is accepted in the majority of cases but is not ideal. Rasterized art is built in pixel-based applications like Adobe® Photoshop®. Common file extensions are .psd, .tif, and .jpg. High-resolution images must be at least 300 dpi.

Low-resolution .jpg, .gif, and .png files cannot be accepted because the quality is insufficient.

We will provide light touch-up work, minor art changes, set font styles and adjust artwork to fit the maximum imprint area at no cost. Artwork requiring extensive touch up will be billed at $30.00 (v). If custom artwork is required, billing will start at $50.00 (z) per hour.
