Artwork can be emailed to our art department
Camera ready art for print production, silkscreening, pad printing, embroidery and web applications is produced on an IBM compatible computer.
Basically this means the file or piece of paper (hard copy) containing the artwork is ready to make a plate or negative from. To be considered camera ready, art must be supplied electronically in proper artwork format or as black ink on white paper. It must be CRISP output produced from a quality laser printer or by linotronic output.
If the finished product is being printed with more than one color, the colors must be separated, complete with registration marks.
If supplied in the appropriate format, your existing artwork can be used to produce the final product, or can assist in recreating camera ready art.
We often need to “rework” your existing artwork so that it will reproduce well – we want the imprint on the products you order to look good.
Images created for internet use are quite low resolution, and are NOT camera-ready when you email them to us. Your supplied files produced in programs which do not offer export capabilities to enable embedding fonts, or production of a .pdf file will likely not open in our professional graphic programs.
