Accepting Artwork

We can accept  just about any form of artwork – but some formats may require additional charges for processing.


Vector artwork includes points and lines, and can be resized by computers with no loss of quality. This artwork is typically set up in programs such as Adobe Illustrator and CorelDRAW. Typical file extensions include AI, EPS, WMF, and CDR (Please save .ai files down to version 9).

We can often make use of engineering AutoCAD formats such as .DWG and .DXF.

Be sure that any reproducible text in the files is outlined. (Call us if you have questions.)


Raster artwork consists of pixels of color. The quality can be high or low depending on the size of the file and the number of pixels. These files cannot be easily resized, and sometimes are of too poor of quality to use.

This artwork is typically set up in Adobe Photoshop, Paint, or taken from a scanned in picture or letterhead. Typical extensions include JPG and TIF. TIF files are preferred.

Sometimes either type of file, Raster, or Vector, is sufficient for us to use without extra processing. We will let you know before performing any work that requires additional charges.

Artwork Processing Charges

Prior to production, we will provide you with a quote on any additional artwork charges that may apply, depending on the complexity of the job.

Ten minutes of set up will be included with each order, time spent over ten minutes will be charged at $15/15 minute increment.
