Spot color printing requirements - Art must be in a vector format. Vector format means your art was created in a vector program and saved in a file that saves the vector information, like an .ai, .pdf or .eps for example. Raster images, such jpeg, png, tiff, psd, etc, can be used but must be at least 200dpi, sent to the correct size, and can only be substituted for black images.
Placing a raster image in a vector file does not automatically convert the image to vector format.
Art must be sent at full size and must be a minimum of 150dpi. 300dpi is preferred for better quality. Vector art is also acceptable. A ¼ inch bleed is recommended for any art that extends to the edge of the plate. Acceptable formats are .jpg, .tif, .eps, .psd, .ai, .eps, .pdf, but all art contained in them must meet the requirements above.
We can accept digital art placed on an Autoplate Template thru either a file transfer, email, or thru a physical media like a CD/DVD or flash drive. We use the latest Adobe software so we can work with any version we recieve.
