Dies need to be made from clean, solid, black and white artwork. No shaded or screened areas can be included. Heavy black areas DO NOT imprint well. We recommend you use an outline for better results. Very fine lines and ornate type also DO NOT always imprint well. Dies that include phone numbers are not recommended as these can change, however, many logo dies now include a URL.
We will check your artwork before we send it off to be made into a die and let you know if we feel it will not imprint well. We can not guarantee, however, the results on any design.
PREFERRED FILE FORMATS:
VECTOR FORMATTED FILES - created line art
RECOMMENDED VECTOR PROGRAMS:
NOTE: Convert all fonts to outlines/curves and be sure to also send any files imported/placed/embedded onto your document page.
PHOTOSHOP FILES and scanned images must be at least 300 dpi, scanned in solid black and white bitmap mode and saved in .tif, .bmp, .psd or .eps format. We cannot accept images in Greyscale, RGB, CMYK, or Indexed color modes as they create a rough, pixellated edge around the image when printed.
WE CANNOT ACCEPT FILES IN .JPG OR .GIF FORMAT. They are designed for viewing purposes only and automatically convert the file into greyscale or color mode.
We cannot accept files downloaded from the Internet unless they are specifically designed for reproduction purposes.
Files should not exceed 2MB in size.
