Artwork we Accept...
Copyright / Trademark Use
Basically, if you don’t own it…we probably can’t print it.
There are several file formats we accept for artwork however...
The benefit to using a vector format allows our artists to manipulate each layer of your art and resize it without losing image quality making the process that much cleaner and faster!
As shown above, using a vector based artwork allows our artists to scale the artwork to a larger size and not lose any image quality giving you a top-end quality product.
Don't forget to create outlines for all your fonts to make your text appear exactly as it should!!
A Common File Extension that says your art is VECTOR art!
FACT: PDF files will preserve a vector's qualities. So if you have a .pdf it could be vector!
Not sure about what format your file is or where it came from? Don’t worry, we’ve got you covered. If you need help with your artwork, send an email to [email protected] or call us at 480.731.3144.

Outlining your Fonts
There are thousands of different fonts in existence and each one has its own unique flavor. A font can speak volumes about the business, club, or individual it represents. That's why we take fonts very seriously and choose each one with care.
When you come to us with your artwork we often run into the problem that comes with copyrighted fonts. If a font is copyrighted, Illustrator will not preserve that font. This means that we may see a font like the image on the right (see below) when in reality your artwork looks like the image on the left.
When a font is outlined it is turned into a vector shape. This means you can no longer edit the type but it also means that the artwork will always look the same no matter which computer you open it in.
