DIGITAL PRINTING REQUIREMENTS
Artwork File Types:
Our digital printing process is compatible with most industry standard file formats. However, we do prefer that you send us the original editable file that your logo or artwork was created in. This way we can make any necessary changes if needed. We can accept Adobe Illustrator vector files (Ai and EPS), 300 Resolution editable Adobe Photoshop files (PSD), and 300 ppi Resolution JPG, PNG, and TIFF files. If you have any questions about the types of file formats, please ask the graphic designer that originally created your logo/artwork. Or you can also submit every artwork file that you have and we can let you know which one is best.
Artwork can be submitted as an option for any solid colored tin after you request a free quote we will contact you with your customization options.
No templates are needed. Just have your art created inside the proper maximum print areas that are listed below.

Resolution / DPI:
The preferred resolution of Adobe Photoshop (PSD), JPG, PNG and TIFF files should created using 300 DPI with the chosen maximum print area dimension listed above. Lower resolution files are acceptable but not preferred for the best possible output. Remember, the better your artwork looks on screen at 100 % magnification or printed out on your home printer to size, the better it will look when it is printed.
If your artwork contains any sort of type set using fonts, they MUST be included in a collected “FONTS” folder. Otherwise, they can be converted to outlines beforehand and a font collection is not needed. Remember, once fonts are converted to outlines we cannot make any changes to your type set if corrections are needed.
All of our digital output is produced in CMYK color space and your files should be created as such. If your artwork needs to be converted from RGB, a slight color shift may occur. Pantone spot colors may be used within your artwork to achieve a more predictable color output, however there still may be a slight color shift.
Lead time for most orders is 1-2 weeks after proof approval. Note lead times will vary during the seasonal months of September thru December.
