All files must be vector! Vector art created to scale, a 3 x 5 ft. image could be either 3 x 5 in. (1/12th scale) or 3.6 x 6 in. (1/10th scale), in .ai or .eps format.
Fonts converted to paths and PMS Chips matching specific colors. All fonts should be converted to outline.
Raster art should be to size at 150 ppi (pixels per inch) in either .TIFF or Photoshop formats. .JPEGS can be used, but due to file compression and image degradation, the quality of the finished goods will be greatly diminished. Raster files are printed as is, unless formatted as an RGB Indexed file with no more than 25 colors. Under this format, color changes can be made. Please keep final output quality in mind, the higher the quality of the file, the higher quality the output image will be. Ideal resolution would be between 150 and 200 dpi at final output size.
PMS Numbers are required. We will try to match colors as closely as possible. If PMS numbers are not supplied in writing, we cannot be held responsible for color matches once item is manufactured.
