Vector Artwork Files
Must be saved in the Postscript Format and contain no Postscript errors, stray points or colors
assigned inconsistently to our published requirements. Note: Due to the wide range of native
software packages, please check our acceptable file formats to determine the best format for delivery of your vector
There are standard imprint areas (W x H) for each item listed in our catalog. Unless specified on
Customer Purchase Order, we will enlarge or reduce your image to fit within these areas. Due to the
fact that some images are not a square, we will reduce or enlarge your image to one of the sizes
Example: image area is 3" x 3" ; your image is 1 1/2" x 3". The image cannot be enlarged because the
3" dimension is as large as possible. If this is an issue, please call your customer service rep (CSR) for other
Must meet Beemak-IDL published minimums for line thickness. Failure to do so may compromise the
final imprint quality. If the vector file contains any linked (placed) raster images, these images
must meet the published minimums for resolution when rendered at 100% actual imprint size and must
be submitted with the original vector file.
Raster Artwork Files
All raster elements and art files must be sized to 100% or larger than the actual imprint size.
Raster images must meet or exceed published minimums when rendered at the actual imprint size.
Raster elements must be submitted in the proper color space (RGB or CMYK) as published.
Acrobat (PDF) Files
PDF files created from vector files must retain the editing capabilities that were used to create
them (e.g. Illustrator or Freehand). PDF files that contain raster or vector elements must meet
published minimums. PDF files created from page layout documents should be submitted together with
the source documents, fonts and all supporting files.
No matter what the format or transfer method, artwork should NEVER be submitted without either a
hard copy proof or the electronic equivalent. Properly prepared PDF files are often suitable as
proofs. Please allow 24 - 48 business hours for receipt of art proof and order confirmation. A
signed copy of the art proof signifying approval is required before an order can be released for
scheduling. The anticipated ship date will be established and confirmed at this time to you.
Fonts used in the production of art files should be converted to curves (outlines) prior to
submission. If future typesetting will be required, the original font files must be included with
the artwork file to be used
on our platform.
