VECTOR FORMATTED FILES - created line art
(Most adaptable and the ONLY format that can be spot color separated.)
Illustrator CS3 or lower (or Illustrator created PDF files)
CorelDraw X4 .cdr (helpful if exported in .ai (Adobe Illustrator) format.
(.eps files may be usable if they will open in CorelDraw.)
NOTE: Convert all fonts to outlines/curves. All color must be black from cmyk. Cannot use rgb color.
Photoshop files and scanned images must be at least 300 dpi, scanned in solid black and white bitmap mode and saved in .tif, .bmp or .eps format. We cannot accept scanned images in Greyscale or RGB as they create a rough, pixellated edge around the image when printed.
WE CANNOT ACCEPT FILES IN .JPG OR .GIF FORMAT. They are designed for viewing purposes only and automatically convert the file into greyscale or color mode.
We cannot accept files downloaded from the Internet unless they are specifically designed for reproduction purposes.
E-mails should not exceed 2MB in size. We can accept some compressed files.
Any further questions, please give us a call. 816-364-4444 (voice and fax)
