PDF files
(Portable Document Format)

PDF files are only accepted if they are editable vector graphics and do not contain embedded images

Art submitted in any of the following formats will incur an additional $45 per hour graphic charge for design conversion. 
(Average time incurred is generally one hour.)

Art File Format


Raster graphics(such as JPG, GIF or TIF) must be 300 dpi or higher

Graphics made up of a collection of pixels, often referred to as a “bitmapped” image

DPI stands for dots per inch.  If the art file is only 72 dpi (web quality), provide it in a large size/dimension so it can be reduced to “sharpen” the image detail.
