Information about the required artwork file formats need for imprinting logo's.
There's a huge variety of file types that can contain images and we'll accept most of them. Broadly speaking, image files fall into one of two categories: vector images and raster images.
A vector image is made up of lines and shapes and is
commonly used for corporate logos and text. The great thing about vector images
is that they can be resized big or small without looking "blocky" or pixelated. Best Option.
This means that our printing machines will do a really good job of reproducing smooth lines and curves in your artwork. If you have a file that ends in.AI, SVG, .EPS or .PDF then it’s probably a vector file.
The other type of images is raster. These are more commonly used for photographs from a digital camera.
There's a limit to how much we can enlarge the image before
it starts to lose quality, so if you want to upload a photo, we suggest that
you upload the image directly from your digital camera without resizing it
first. The better the image, the better the quality of the print. If you have a
file that ends in .JPG, .JPEG, .BMP or .PNG then it’s a raster image. These need to be saved as a minimum of 300dpi to size or larger.
