How Do I Submit my work to you?

Please read and follow this checklist carefully. The following guidelines and specifications will ensure the highest quality reproduction for your decals. Large Files can get mailed using: to:

Artwork Requirements for PLOTTER Cut Vinyl Graphics

Vector Art work is required for all plotter cut vinyl graphics. (remember the plotter machine follows and cuts every line in your file)

- Save files as Uncompressed.
- All fonts converted to curves.
- Remove all unwanted layers.
- All strokes or outlines converted to objects.
- All overlapping objects of same color must be welded as 1 piece.
- File must be in PC format NO MAC FILES ACCEPTED.
- All text must at least .5 inches tall.
- Line weight must be a minimum of .0625 inches.


Adobe Illustrator


CS3 (or older)  

Adobe PhotoShop

.psd CS3 (or older)  
Adobe Portable Document Format .pdf 1.2 to 5.0  

AutoCAD Drawing

.dwg 2000  

Corel Draw

.cdr 11  

Flexi 10




PLEASE NOTE: Just because you save a bitmap file as EPS or Ai file DOES NOT make it a vector file.

For printing of Full Color images we need at lease a 300 DPI resolution image (Dots Per Inch). If you submit a file less then 300 dpi remember that your image will only look as good as the file you sent us.

BITMAP FORMATS ACCEPTED for digitally printed full color

- Graphics must be CMYK color OUTPUT. We do not Pantone Color Match CMYK to Pantone color chart


NOTE:. Anything pulled off a Web-site will be 72 DPI and is poor quality and will not print well.

Help I do not understand Bitmap vs Vector

What is Bitmap?*

Most images you see on your computer are composed of bitmaps. A bitmap is a map of dots, or bits (hence the name), that looks like a picture as long you are sitting a reasonable distance away from the screen. Common bitmap file types include BMP (the raw bitmap format), JPEG, GIF, PICT, PCX, and TIFF. Because bitmap images are made up of a bunch of dots, if you zoom in on a bitmap, it appears to be very blocky. Vector graphics (created in programs such as Freehand, Illustrator, or CorelDraw) can scale larger without getting blocky.

What is Vector?*

Mathematically, a vector is a quantity, defined by both magnitude and direction. For example, one vector could be illustrated by an 1 inch arrow pointing at a 30 degree angle. Another vector may be 2.5 inches and point at 160 degree angle. In the computer world, vectors are used to define paths in certain types of images, such as EPS files and Adobe Illustrator documents. These images are often called vector graphics since they are comprised of vectors, or paths, instead of dots. Vector graphics can be scaled larger or smaller without losing quality.


Q: I have a JPG image. Why can't I use that for Digital printing (note: jpg files can be printed on vinyl, they need to be at least 300 dpi)?
A: Jpg's and Gif file formats are both bitmap - based images which are series of pixels. The pixels often give a blurry, "stairstep" look when printed. Both JPG's and Gif's are compressed file formats to make smaller file sizes for faster loading on web sites but do not print clearly.

Q: I saved my jpg as an Illustrator file but that still won't work. Why?
A: Opening a jpg or gif in Illustrator and saving it as an Illustrator file does not change the fact that it is still a pixel-based or "raster" image. Artwork that is actually created in a drawing program such as llustrator, Freehand, or Corel Draw is vector-based. That means that the lines and shapes of the artwork are based on mathematical formulas which makes the artwork completely scalable. No matter how much you magnify the image, the lines will still be sharp and clear. When we change your jpg or gif into an Illustrator file, we actually re - create it.

Q: I have a Photoshop file but I was told it won't work even though it is in the list of acceptable file formats. Why?
A: Photoshop and Illustrator art programs have a lot of the same features but Photoshop is mostly used to edit photos and create other raster images. Photoshop is invaluable for photographs, color-separations or layered artwork but with the exception of a few of the key chains that allow a full-color photo, your artwork will normally be 1 or 2 colors in drawn logos which need to be vector - based files.

Q: What is "dpi" and why does it matter?
A: DPI stands for Dots per Inch. Images saved from web sites are normally low resolution which means they are about 72 dpi. Low resolution images work very well for web sites because they are smaller file sizes and hence load faster than a high resolution image would but those same images will not give you satisfactory results when it is printed. A raster or pixel-based image needs to be at least 300 dpi and sometimes even higher.

Q: How can I change my low-resolution image into a high-resolution one?
A: Unfortunately it is impossible to turn a low-resolution raster image into a high-resolution one. Resolution can be reduced but it can never be increased.
