File Formats - Vector

April 25, 2022 08:23am

Any non-photographic content (including graphics and text) is recommended to be provided to us as vector-based files. These help to ensure printed lines and images are crisp and clear.

Types of vector files can include:

  • Vector Adobe Illustrator (.AI) files
  • Vector .PDF files
  • Vector .EPS files
  • .SVG files (these are not ideal for print, but can be altered)

When sending vector artwork components - as well as assembled, completed dieline files - check that:

  • There are no cut or crop lines included.
  • All transparencies have been flattened (this includes less-than-100% opacity screens and overlays).
  • Text and Line Art follows our recommended guidelines.
  • Any images in the design are embedded, not linked.
    To do this in Adobe Illustrator, right click the element(s) in the Links palette and select Embed File(s).
