PRODUCTION-READY ART DEFINITION
ai, eps or pdf artwork submitted electronically that is vector based and created in a vector-based program such as Adobe Illustrator (.ai or .pdf) or CorelDRAW (.eps or .pdf). Vector drawn art uses points and lines to create clean, print ready art without loss of quality at any scale. It’s important that your art adheres to this standard for the highest quality product.
PREFERRED FORMATS AI, EPS, PDF
Adobe Illustrator version 10 or higher adhering to these guidelines:
- Artwork is vector drawn
- Fonts are outlined
- Colors have been defined using Pantone’s matching system (PMS)
- A color composite file is provided without separations
Files received in a raster format and not vector are subject to longer lead time.
Any non-production-ready artwork must be redrawn to conform to our standards.
Non-production-ready artwork is subject to a minimum art charge of $75.
IMPRINT COLOR MATCHES
It is our intention to match as closely as possible to all Pantone numbers/color swatches. However, as our inks have to comply with certain safety standards, it is not always possible to give a perfect match, especially on units other than white. This may result in a significant color difference when printing on colored units, e.g., red on black units, yellow on blue units. Please take this into consideration.
