|What type of art will you accept|
Art for most promotional items such as pencils, pens, etc. must be a vector file and be created in a vector program such as Adobe Illustrator or Corel Draw. To save time, the following guidelines are suggested. Please contact the art director if you are unsure whether your art will work.
For art on paper, vector art is recommended. This is art created in Illustrator or Corel Draw. The fonts must be converted to outline or curves. Please include a .jpg as a proof. Placed images must be included with the file.
Bitmap files such as .tiff, .bmp or .psd are good for painted or photographic images. For best result the image must be created at 300 dpi at the final print size. Images taken from the internet such as .jpg or .giff are not recommended because they are usually too small. Bitmap files will usually not work for promotional items such as pencils, flashlights, etc. List of names must be typed in Microsoft Word. For a paragraph of names, do not press “Enter” at the end of each line. For names to be placed in columns please press “Enter” after each name. Please e-mail the font along with the file. We use the following application on the Windows platform: Corel Draw X3, Adobe Illustrator CS5, Adobe Photoshop CS5.
