.AI, .EPS- Adobe Illustrator Files
The most preferred file type. We prefer have the art sent in Adobe CS, or anything lower than that version. Vectorized line art and logo's and PMS colors. These files are usually small in size because of their line art makeup. Sometime pixel images maybe placed in these files to accompany the vector artwork; such as photos.
NOTE: Placing a jpg. or tiff. and any other image in an ai. or eps. file does not convert those files into vectorized artwork.
.PDF- Adobe Acrobat File
These files are the same as above and can be viewed on PC & Mac computers. When using this file format please make sure that the fonts are converted to outlines/ curves.
.PSD- Adobe Photoshop File
These are images made in Adobe Photoshop. These can be any size or resolution, and any color. Photoshop images are usually made in layers, so please flatten to one layer before sending the file, unless some layers need to be edited. Images should typically be at least 150 dpi at full size, 300 dpi at 50% size.
This is one of the most common formats used for raster images. These can be any resolution, and they can be any color, grayscale or b&w.
.JPG- Joint Photographic Experts Group
This is a compressed file for color images. It is the most popular format for emailing files because of its small size. JPGs are not a preferred format for enlarging files. We accept this format, and will let you know if the resolution is acceptable for the project.
.DOC- Microsoft Word Document
Microsoft Word documents are usually text with some elements of images. We accept this format and can copy the text into our sign making program.
.BMP- Bitmap Image
These images come in any color or resolution. We accept these file, and will let you know if the resolution is acceptable for the project.
.PPT- Microsoft PowerPoint Document
PowerPoint is a program used to display presentations. These file are meant to be seen, and not printed. We do accept this file format but would not recommend it.
