We accept several application types, below is a list of our preferred Applications.

We use the latest version of the Adobe Creative Suite on a PC. For most promotional products, vector artwork is preferred.

Acceptable File Formats: For quality printing, please provide vector art and/or rasterized art which is 300 dpi at the finished printed size in the following formats: .tif (high resolution only/not compressed) .eps or .ai, .jpg (high resolution only/not compressed) and .pdf.

How should I prepare my artwork?

Multiple revisions can be costly, make sure your files are ready to print. Be sure to "preflight" your files for color, fonts, and file resolution.

Note: Most files from the web are too small to print properly, please submit your art at the highest possible dpi; 300 dpi at actual printing size  recommended for best results.

How do I Include a “text safe area”in Indesign?

Follow these steps to create a text safe area in your file. In an open InDesign document, on the top left of the bar, go to: Layout > Margins & Columns
Add a 0.25 inch margin, this is the “Text Safe Area,” no important information should pass this line. This insures text and other important information does not get cut off.

Important Graphic Design Terms


Crop Marks & Bleeds

Bleed – when a design extends past the “page edge” or “trim mark,” so there’s no chance of white borders after cutting a printed piece.

Trim mark or page edge – indicate the final size after a printed piece has been cut down. Trim marks accompany crop marks showing where the piece should be cut.

Margin or safety area – anything inside your margin is considered in the safe zone of your printed piece and doesn’t run the risk of being cut off, e.g. your copy or any important content.


Serif – a small stroke at the beginning and end of the main strokes of a character. Some common serif fonts are Times New RomanBook Antiqua, and Georgia.

Slab serif – very bold, thick, square-cut serif letters. Sony, Honda, Volvo, and IBM are all great examples of slab serif logos.

Sans serif – meaning without serif, or without any strokes to the end of a character. Some popular sans serif fonts include ArialHelvetica, and Verdana.

Script – a flowing, cursive stroke imitating handwriting, typically used in design and print pieces as opposed to body text.

Kerning –  refers to the spacing between pairs of letters in the same word. Not all letters are created equal, so certain pairs of letters can appear to form an entirely different letter.

Leading (pronounced “ledding”) – refers to the space between two lines in a block of text.


Color Theory

RGB vs. CMYK –These are color modes for images either on a screen or in print. CMYK stands for cyan, magenta, yellow, and key (black). CMYK is used for printing and is often called four-color process or four-color printing. RGB stands for red, green and blue, the three colors of light typically used to display images on a digital screen, like a monitor, TV, or a computer. Keep in mind, if artwork is created in RGB, it might look great on screen however it will print out a different color in CMYK!

Monochromatic – a monochromatic color palette uses various shades of a single color (like a single slice of the color pie in the chart above).

Complementary – colors that are across from each other on the color wheel (e.g. purple and yellow). While complementary colors might be a bit jarring together, this can be used to an advantage when you need a visual element to really stand out.
