Guidelines for Submitting Artwork
The artwork that you submit will be used to create the imprint on the product that you have ordered. To produce your logo accurately, quality source artwork is essential. Quality source artwork will better allow us to create a customized design within a good timeframe. Whereas bad quality source artwork may result in production delays or increased costs for cleaning up the artwork.

Electronic Source Artwork
We request that you submit a high-quality copy of your artwork or logo in an electronic file format, specifically vector art. Vector artwork is composed of lines that have been created in an illustration program such as Illustrator. Vector art is recommended because it can be easily manipulated and sized without any loss of quality. Your printer or design agency will have a copy of your logo in a vector format. You can forward this document to your printer or design firm to instruct them on how to submit artwork. The artwork can be saved on a Windows or Mac computer, provided file extensions are present on all files.
Submitting Vector Artwork
If your artwork was created in Adobe Illustrator it is more than likely vector artwork. All text in the artwork must be converted to outlines (curves) in Illustrator to avoid font problems. When submitting vector art the preferred format is EPS, (Encapsulated PostScript),.AI, or either of those saved as a.PDF. The saved artwork can be submitted by attaching the file to an email and sent to your representative.
We currently use Adobe Illustrator 11 & Adobe Illustrator CS5. We accept native .ai files or editable .eps or .pdf files. Please always send a PDF file along with the native file of what the artwork is supposed to look like when printed. If you are printing the artwork in one color – please submit it to us in black and white format. (Everything black in the artwork file – will be printed in the one imprint color of your choice).
Do not worry about the imprint area. We will size your logo for you on the bag that you choose.
