Vector images can be resized without any loss of quality. If we need to change the size of your artwork, it will not become blurry or pixelated. Vector artwork is drawn in programs such as Adobe Illustrator or Corel Draw. Please note that placing or importing photographs, bitmap, or raster images into a drawing program does not convert them into vector artwork. If a placed/imported Photoshop-type image (PSD, TIFF, JPEG, or EPS) is necessary.

Most standard fonts are available. But if you have a unique or specific font • CONVERT YOUR FONTS TO OUTLINES/PATHS/CURVES within your program. If we do not have the exact font you used, the text in your art will "default" to the most similar font changing the look of your design. Converting your fonts to outlines, paths, or curves, eliminates this hazard by changing your fonts into vector shapes. This ensures that your artwork will print exactly how you expect it to look. If you choose not to convert your fonts to outlines, please send us the font you used. We adhere to all font software licensing parameters and guarantee your font will only be used for the printing of your job.
TYPESETTING: Is available to no or very little cost.
