> SENDING US ARTWORK
on sending artwork to SignsByWeb.
files in digital form:
work in a vector format for the vast majority of our
projects. Our machines follow these precise mathematical lines
to cut, trace, slice, route, and otherwise construct our products.
We can work with files created in vector drawing programs,
usually without any cleanup on our part. These programs include:
Corel, Freehand, Adobe Illustrator and the like. Any vector
program able to export an '.eps' file should suffice.
Make sure all fonts
used are converted to outlines before saving file. We work
in native Adobe Illustrator files for output, so that is our
preferred program, but these others will do as long as they
are saved in the Encapsulated PostScript (.eps) format.
This avoids a font mismatch or absence altogether on our end.
Please also create art in a scale (of any kind) if possible.
such as GIF, BMP, TIFF, PICT, AND JPEG require a 'cleaning
up' on our part to put these pieces of art into a vector format.
Depending on resolution, size, and color depth of bitmapped
raster file sent to us, we may have to incur several hours
of clean up to get art in reproducible condition.
files in hardcopy form:
prefer to have files sent to us in digital format,
already cleaned up and ready to be reproduced as is. We can
work from flat art as well. Camera ready slicks are preferred,
but we can work with anything. Just keep in mind that we can
only do so much, if we get bad (ragged) artwork we will clean
it up as best we can. It is a good idea to send us the best
artwork you can.
If sending flat
artwork, do not send originals! We will make every attempt
to return any art you send to us, but we will not be held
responsible for such return.
