Getting the proper artwork for printing is essential. We can help you achieve this.
what is proper artwork?
We at SKAZMA will need to have vector artwork to be considered print ready for your designs. The file formats accepted for your vector image will be: .cdr – .ai – .pdf (editable) – .eps . All fonts must be converted to curves or outlines before we can accept your artwork. Sound confusing? Don’t worry, we are here to help!
vector vs bitmap
A vector file is an image that can be made infinitely large without losing quality and usually comes as an .AI, .EPS, .PDF, or .SVG file. Think of it as a digital connect-the-dots. The advantage of vectored art is its scalability. As you increase or decrease the size of the art, the points are either spaced farther apart or drawn closer together. The computer re-connects the dots and the art looks good no matter what size you make it. The result is a clean, crisp printed image.
vector vs bitmap
A bitmap file is created from a series of tiny colored squares, called pixels, that when viewed at 100% produce a seamless image similar to a photograph. The more pixels used to create the image, the higher the quality. Bitmap images will look jagged and grainy when printed on a press because there is simply not enough information, in terms of pixels, to create a quality image. We will not print images from these files.
For embroidery, we need DST-specific embroidery files. What if you do not have artwork but have an awesome idea in mind? Contact us to schedule a design appointment with one of our awesome graphic designers!
