Artwork F.A.Q.s

Yes. We can take your sketch and turn it into art very easily. It is much easier for our graphic designers iif you can supply as much detail as possible so that we can do the best job for you. Sketch out or send us a file describing what you’re looking for and we’ll help you out.

If you can’t find an acceptable electronic file that meets our requirements, you might consider asking the person who originally created your logo for a vector file and have it emailed to us. Sometimes when the files are large, our clients prefer to send us a disk. Please remember to ask them to use the requirements below.

As a last resort, if you have “Camera Ready” artwork than can be scanned, you can send it to us at the address below. Camera Ready artwork means, black and white laser printed artwork of 1200 dpi or higher.

Yes, we accept artwork in the following formats: Corel Draw (.CDR) Adobe Illustrator (.AI) .jpg, .BMP and .gif

It is very common for logos to use different or special fonts. If for example, you created your logo with a special font, you will be able to see it in your computer just as you want it. But when you send the file over to someone who doesn’t have that font installed in their computer, then they won’t be able to see what you see. In these cases the computer assigns a substitute font. In order to avoid this to happen, you can follow the follow the instructions below:
