ARTWORK GUIDELINES

 VECTOR ART is the preferred format.  This includes files done in applications  such as Adobe Illustrator or Corel Draw to name a few.  Extensions after  the file name include extensions such as: .ai, .eps, .cdr. or .pdf. , although .pdf can also include raster or placed jpg images.


RASTER ART is usually art that is created in a program such as Photoshop or a  Photo editor type program.  File extensions include .jpg, .tiff, .psd,.bmp, to name a few.


The  difference between vector art and raster art is that vector art can be  resized from a the size of a postage stamp to the size of a billboard  while remaining sharp whereas raster art will look rather chunky and  fuzzy when enlarged from a small size.

 

Supported formats:

Adobe Illustrator or Photoshop CC or below. (pdf, .ai, .dwg, . dxf, .eps, .tiff*, bmp* or jpg*)


-PLEASE CHANGE ALL FONTS TO OUTLINES BEFORE SENDING-
Failure  to do so will result in font substitution. - In other words our  computers will substitute the ugliest font they can find in place of the  original intended font, due to the fact that we don't have that  particular font in our system.

OTHER FORMATS: RASTER ART includes  files done in photoshop such as tif , jpeg, .bmp, psd etc. or  illustrator files that may have been exported to jpeg files.


-ALL RASTER FILES NEED TO BE 300 dpi.

 Lower resolutions will not be sharp.


Please  save 1 color artwork in bitmap/tif option. Choosing cymk,rgb,or  grayscale will result in extremely large files and fuzzy looking  artwork.

If doing multi color artwork assign a pms color to each color  in the file so it will separate.

Note: Raster artwork does not look  sharp when enlarged so please do the artwork at 100%

A WORD ABOUT JPGS and low resolution art: Please note artwork taken off the Internet is usually not sharp and of  low resolution. We strongly recommend that you do not send us this  format.  However if this is the only format you can get we will rebuild  your file into vector art at a cost of $65.00 per hr. Any fonts in the  file will be matched as closely as possible.

PLEASE INCLUDE COMPANY NAME AND ANY INSTRUCTIONS IN THE EMAIL IF ARTWORK IS NOT TO SIZE etc.

All  artwork generated at Full Service Graphics will be submitted via email  in pdf format art approval by the customer. No final films or screens  will be made until we receive an approval via email.


All art files can be emailed to: info@fsg-online.com
