Artwork Formats & Requirements

To get started quickly - Email your logo and art requirements to us.

Vector based formats of your logo created in vector programs like Illustrator (.ai ) are necessary for all Graphic Inlay Mats & Tiles. We can use some bitmap formats such as jpg, jpeg, tif, eps, bmp for all other products - if the resolution is at an acceptable size relative to the final size of your chosen product - If you are unsure about your artwork suitability we can review its useability on sight.

Alternatively forward a copy of the below text to your graphic designer or printer to have your artwork supplied in the correct format.

Digital Art:

  1. The preferred format is Adobe Illustrator ( Vector Based where possible ).
  2. PC / FREEHAND files to be saved/exported as 'Vector Based' .eps or editable vector based PDF files.
