LOGOS, TEXT, LINE-BASED or VECTOR BASED ARTWORK:
For this type of artwork, we will need the following types of files: EPS (encapsulated post script) or PDF (portable document file). As long as the artwork has been created in a program that uses vector graphics such as Adobe Illustrator, CorelDraw, or Freehand, we can manipulate it and scale it appropriately.
PHOTO, 4-COLOR IMAGES or RASTER ARTWORK:
This type of artwork is based on pixels. It is important that if we are creating a large sign that the artwork is equally as large. Just scaling a smaller image to make it larger will simply make the image fuzzy and pixilated. For this type of artwork, we will need the following: Either a TIFF or JPEG that ideally has a resolution of 300 dpi scaled at the size of its final output. The higher the resolution, the better.
If you have complicated artwork that needs to be re-traced, re-drawn, or digitized, The Sign Studio will be happy to assist you for an additional design cost. Simple designs and artwork may not require an additional cost. Please ask us if you are unsure. You can submit files to us through email or burned onto a CD. For large files we prefer CD submission. All incoming artwork must come to us print ready.
