Vector Art File Formats that You Can Submit

We recommend that you prepare your artwork or ask your client to submit artwork in one of these formats:

  • JPG - good choice for images with many colors, photos, scanned images, etc.
  • GIF, PNG - ideal for designs with fewer colors, especially larger areas of solid colors. e.g. text, logo
  • PDF, EPS, AI - these are vector formats meaning the artwork can be easily scaled. Don't forget to convert fonts used in the design into outlines
  • Word Document - some clients do send these, it is ok. Just keep in mind that instead of embedding an image to a Word document that may lower its quality, you can just send that image.

If you've got a different format, send it anyway - we'll let you know if we can't open it.

Two important factors to consider - image size and file size. We suggest that you submit a relatively large image, ideally at 300dpi resolution (e.g. if the desired size is 3" x 3", at 300 dpi, the image size will be 900 x 900 pixels). However, please prepare a relatively smaller file size, recommended to be below 2MB. Again, keep in mind that generally JPG is good in compression, while TIFF and BMP may be 10 times bigger.
