If the client is supplying their our artwork we require the artwork to be a Vector art file at 300dpi. If the artwork supplied does not meet our print requirements we will contact the client and notify them. Anything Printing is not responsible for artwork touch ups, alterations or re-design. We can assist with artwork corrections but we charge accordingly to the design corrections required.
What is a Vector art file?
A vector file can be scaled to any size without any loss of quality. This is because it’s built up from mathematically precise points.
Vector files are the type you will require to get anything professionally printed, or if you need design work carried out by another designer, for example; apparel, brochures, exhibition stands, pens etc.
As vector files are intended for use in printing they are provided in CMYK colour mode. CMYK stands for Cyan, Magenta, Yellow and Black, which are the 4 colours used to make up the colours in a full colour printed page. There’s also special inks that can be used in some instances, known as a Pantone, which is specific to individual branding and design concepts.
If you could give only one file type, it would be a vector file, as it can be converted to any other file type with the correct software.
Vector file types have a file extension of .ai .eps or .pdf.
What is a Raster file?
Raster files are built up of small squares called pixels. This means that as you increase the size of your image, it will become blocky, or appear to be blurred. This is why a logo design should be created in vector format for the best results.
Raster files are intended for computer use, so are provided in RGB colour mode. RGB stands for Red, Green and Blue, which are the colours used to make up all the colours you see on your screen. Black is the absence of light.
Raster file types have a file extension of .Jpeg or .PNG (there are other raster-based image types, such as Gif, BMP and TIFF, but for logo design, these two alone should be sufficient)
