Artwork Guidelines

 

Every great customized promotional or gift item starts with high quality artwork. You may only be starting with an idea, but if you already have a good quality logo or image it provides a strong starting point before creating final artwork that we’ll use to customize your product. Our staff graphic designers can customize an existing logo or create one from scratch.

 

Vectored Artwork

The majority of art that we use is Vectored and it is our preferred artwork format..  Vector artwork is art that's made up of vector graphics. These graphics are points, lines, curves and shapes that are based on mathematical formulas. When you scale a vector image file, it isn't low resolution and there's no loss of quality, so it can be sized to however large or small you need it to be.

 

Colors

 All colors in vectored artwork should be submitted as PMS or CMYK. For more information on colors click here.

 

High Quality Images

If you have original, high quality digital files available, the staff at NGA Promotions™ can create the final art that will be used for printing your job more quickly and affordably. Images that are downloaded from the Web are ‘low-resolution’ images. When adjusted for size they most often downgrade, leaving ragged edges that will translate to your finished piece.

 

Here are our recommendations to insure you receive the best results:

If you are unsure about your artwork feel free so send us what you have. Alternatively, you can reach out to the designer who created the artwork for you and request a vectored copy with colors converted to CMYK or PMS.

 

Please note that saving a low resolution photo as a .pdf or .eps does not change the properties of the

file and it will not be suitable for production.
