Effective signage begins with quality components. Let’s start with the basics.
Our art department can accept files from virtually all professional publishing and graphics software. However, we cannot accept any electronic art that has been created using Microsoft Office or equivalent. If you have artwork that was created using one of these programs, please contact us to discuss an alternative solution. All artwork must either be saved as grayscale, bitmap or cmyk and at a minimum of 300 dpi or in some cases 100 dpi will be sufficient depending on the application. Please send the files in the format they were created in.
- Adobe InDesign CC
- Adobe Illustrator CC
- Adobe Photoshop CC
- Corel Draw X8
Include all elements used to create the document, such as:

- All Mac files must have fonts converted to curves / outlines.
In multi-SPOT color, documents must use colors from the Pantone Matching System (PMS) Library.
