Artwork Submission Guidelines


We are currently using Adobe Creative Suite 6 (CS6) and FlexiSign Pro.  These professional design packages give us lots of flexibility where opening your art files. If you have any problems, please give us a call with your issues! We will be happy to help!




Vector based files include .ai & .eps files. Currently, some .pdf files contain vector artwork embedded in them.  If you email us your .pdf, we will see if it contains the appropriate vector art.

We prefer vector based artwork because we have more options when creating your sign.

Vector based graphics allow us to scale your artwork to almost any size without losing resolution. Also, we can output the artwork to cut vinyl, digital printing, or routing.

Fonts/Text Submission:  Before submitting your vector files please convert your fonts to outlines or paths.

Raster based files include .tif, .psd, .jpg, and sometimes .eps files.

Raster files (like photos and renderings) will limit your sign output to being digitally printed.

File Resolution:  A minimum resolution of 100-150 dpi at 100% file size will be acceptable for many signage applications.  Keep in mind a 200-300 dpi at a 50% file size will scale up proportionately. As a general rule, higher resolution files provide a nicer output, but is usually only necessary for larger, grand format images.

Fonts/Text Submission:  Before submitting your raster files, please make sure all text is flattened.


Setup your files in CMYK color format.  Make sure all imported/embedded images are also in CMYK color format. Although not always necessary, we would appreciate if PMS color information was included when a job is submitted, in order to further supplement the artwork.


We currently employ a Seiko M64s for printing your digital graphics.  This is a 7 color machine, and uses Light Magenta, Light Cyan and a Grey in combination with the other CMYK colors.  This machine will print a wide spectrum of colors.  Large Format Printers are not Pantone devices, and thus will not match Pantone (PMS) colors.  Colors will be close, but may not be exact.



  • Email (Extremely large files may exceed limits by providers.  Currently we can accept files up to 25MB through email.)
  • Flash Drive
