Here are some helpful guidelines to follow when providing your logo or imprint to the SAS art department:

ELECTRONIC ARTWORK SPECIFICATIONS

If your program is not listed below, please contact us so we can find a way to use your files.

 

WE HAVE AVAILABLE:

* Adobe Illustrator

* CorelDraw 

*Adobe Photoshop

*Adobe Acrobat (for PDF files)

 

There are many other programs available to open/read your files. However, since they are not specifically graphic programs, we cannot build separations from them. Use of these non-graphic programs may be subject to additional conversion charges. PLEASE BE SURE TO CONVERT ALL FONTS TO ARTWORK or include your fonts for us to utilize.

 

VECTOR files vs. RASTER files:

Vector files allow us to manipulate the art by use of nodes (or points) which can be moved within the graphic (edges can be straightened, lines smoothed, etc).

 

Vector File Extensions we like to see:

.AI

.CDR

.EPS

.PDF

 

Raster images (no nodes and cannot be manipulated) are mostly for CMYK (4-color process / photo-like) images and need to be saved at 300 DPI (dots per inch) or above. The higher the resolution (quality), the better the prints on our products.

 

Raster File Extensions we like to see:

.JPG

.GIF

.PSD

.TIF

.PCX

.BMP

 

In most cases artwork “to size” is not necessary. Our SAS graphics department can resize your logo or imprint to fit most items.
