We can work with most any graphics file format. Formats we prefer are:
- eps – Postscript
- pdf – Acrobat
- ai – Adobe Illustrator (convert to eps or email these to email@example.com)
If your file format isn’t listed above, most programs will export in one of them. Please remember to convert any text to curves since Fonts tend to vary from user to user.
What is the minimum DPI I can use?
All vector files are acceptable. The following explanation only applies to raster based files. We recommend not using any less than 100 DPI at full size. Example, if your beginning file size is 1000 DPI and it must be enlarged 15 times (1500%) to achieve the desired finished size the 66.66 DPI enlarged size (1000/15=66.66) would not be of sufficient resolution to produce a high quality finished product. On the other hand if the same file only needed to be enlarged 10 times (1000%) to achieve the desired finished size the resulting 100 DPI would meet the minimum quality resolution requirements for a visually appealing flag.
This not to say that we cannot produce your flag with a sub 100 DPI full sized graphic. We are just stating the fact that the higher your finished sized resolution the better. If you have any art questions please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
