ADVANCE Custom Promotions prefers vector type files (files that have been created in
programs such as Adobe Illustrator and saved as EPS files). The software programs
Adobe Illustrator (.ai) and Adobe Photoshop (.psd) are our primary graphics programs.
All other graphics must be saved in EPS or TIFF format.
All text should be converted to OUTLINES. This will eliminate having to send us font files that may
not be installed on our computers. To convert text to outlines, select the text and choose the
"Create Outlines" selection under the "Type" menu. If you are using a graphics program other than
Adobe Illustrator, please make sure all fonts are converted to "curves" or "outlines" according to
the program you are using.
Bitmap files can be accepted but .tiff, or .psd files are preferable and should be saved at 300dpi.
Black and white line art should be scanned at least at 800 d.p.i. Line art drawings should be sent
in vector format (Adobe Illustrator or Adobe .pdf formats).
Be sure spot color art is saved in spot, not CMYK or RGB color. When sending files be sure spot
and process colors are saved accordingly and the image is in high resolution (300ppi or better).
Web art is not suitable for printing because it is saved in RGB color and low resolution (72ppi).
All artwork should be sized precisely to the imprint area specifications of the product.
If you have any questions regarding the above specifications, please contact a promotions
consultant at 1-877-776-6680.
