Also known as line art. Vector artwork is preferred (unless printing photos). .eps, .ai, or .pdf OUTLINED FONTS (Required for all products) Font selection can vary from computer to computer, which can cause a desired font to be replaced with a generic one. To preserve your fonts, always outline, embed, or convert them to curves before submitting artwork. Original Font Missing font replaced with a generic one Original font when outlined, embedded or converted to curves EMBEDDED IMAGES (Required for all products) Most programs allow the user to add an image to a file by linking or embedding. Embedded images are stored within the document itself, while linked files are not. Because of this, linked files can suddenly vanish when opened from a different computer. Embed all images to avoid losing them when files are submitted. RASTER ART Also known as bitmap art. Composed of pixels (or tiny squares) grouped together to make one complete image. When scaled larger, the image will look pixelated (or jagged). • Submit art at 200 DPI (dots per inch) UNACCEPTABLE FILE FORMATS: Quark, Corel Draw, Word, PowerPoint, Excel, Publisher, Pagemaker, low-resolution scanned images. (InDesign files, unless exported to .eps or .pdf format, will incur additional charges or be rejected.)
