BEST Art Requirements



  • Digital art can be sent via e-mail, zip disk, or CD-ROM in PC or MAC formats.
  • We prefer emailed files.
  • For best results, create your art as vector art in Adobe Illustrator (or Corel Draw) and save as an .eps file (encapsulated postscript).
  • Convert your fonts to curves in Corel Draw.
  • Convert your fonts to outlines in Adobe Illustrator.
  • Our preferred format is Illustrator (.ai) files for screened orders and Adobe Photoshop (.psd) for four color process.



In order to give you the maximum quality imprint, we have developed some artwork guidelines, which include minimum line weights, minimum font sizes, etc. Artwork that does not conform to these guidelines can delay an order based on artwork received.
