Basic Requirements when Submitting Electronic Artwork

Vector artwork with fonts converted to lines/outlines/paths.

Raster Image color space must be bitmap (B&W) and a minimum resolution of 600 x 600 ppi to size.  Text is not suitable as raster data.

Spot color must be defined in art files.

Full Color Process (4 Color Process) printing requires output to be in 300 dpi at actual size and include all needed bleeds (.125″).

Full Color (4 Color Process) art should be supplied in a non-compressed format, CMYK (no jpeg or gif files).

File formats in order of preference: a.i., .pdf, .eps (vector).

These are some simple guidelines to follow to receive clear printing.  Custom Applied does check your artwork when received to ensure your artwork meets the proper requirements to avoid order delays.
