What format should I send?

We will accept art only in PC-compatible formats, created or drawn in these programs. Please do not submit placed or embedded images. Convert all fonts to paths, curves, or outlines. It is preferred that you create Vector Art in Adobe Illustrator or EPS format.  Important Note: A scanned image (e.g, .jpg, .gif, .bmp, .tiff, .psd, .pdf) or art created in a photo/paint/word program is not Vector art. In addition, placing, linking, embedding, or copying these images into a drawing program does not convert them into Vector art and will not meet our art requirements.We can convert them to Vector for you at a minimal clean up charge.   1. All graphics must be Vector art. All Multi-color artwork must be designed with PMS spot colors. No CMYK file unless it is a process print.  2. For multi-color printing, colors must be separated by at least 1/16″ of white space between colors to allow for color movement of up to 1/16″ in any direction. Not available on certain bags.  3. All type must be saved as outlines. Minimum Type Size: 6pt. Minimum Rule Line Weight: .75pt. Minimum Screen Dot: 7%   **Tip: If your file size is too large, try to compress your file in software (WinZip for PC), all fonts and images must be embedded in the files or copied to the disk, CD ROM, ZIP and mail to https://plasticbagprinting.co.za/ For best results, we prefer VECTOR ART created in Adobe Illustrator. For process printing, or digital print raster type files are preferred (formats such as Photoshop, TIIF)  If the type of file you have doesn’t meet our requirements, send what you have and we’ll do our very best to make it work.

What if I don’t have artwork?

We don’t want to think that the lack of artwork would keep you from a successful promotion, so if you don’t have it, don’t worry. We can help you create the artwork you need to get the marketing supplies you want. Simply call 073 625 5637 to speak with a Promotions Specialist about pricing and lead time. Once you let us know what you’re looking for, we’ll create the logo and present it to you as an eProof for your approval.
