EPS Files created in Adobe Illustrator. This is the most universally acceptable file format for line printing. For multi-colour line-colour artwork with more than one colour, please ensure that each colour is on its own separation as this will enable us to colour separate your artwork and make modifications if required. In addition, each layer must be labelled with its colour reference and all fonts must be converted to outlines before saving.
Other File Formats
TIFF Files are acceptable for single colour work only. The image must be in black & white and not colour. The files should be sufficiently large to ensure that sharp edge definition can be printed. You should be able to check this by printing your image on a laser printer at 200%.
JPEG Files are acceptable for single colour work only. The image must be in black & white and not colour. Files should be sufficiently large to ensure that sharp edge definition can be printed. You should be able to check this by printing your image on a laser printer at 200%. Please be careful when saving JPEG files as they are designed to compress on copying. This has an adverse affect on quality.
Please remember to check all digital files for Viruses before sending them and clearly mark any disks with your company name and e-mail address.
