I have no artwork.
If you don’t have any artwork, don’t worry - we can create a basic design for you. Just give us a general idea of your requirements, and we will do the rest. Remember to include any logos or symbols you wish to use.
I have my own artwork.
Most file formats are suitable for basic artwork such as simple text or shapes. You probably have Windows Paint pre-installed on your computer which is ok for the basics. Even programs such as Microsoft Word are okay for general text/layout suggestions for us to work on
More complex artwork (see below) will require vector based files such as .ai (Adobe Illustrator) or .dpp (Serif DrawPlusx8 - see above). These can be provided in their original format or published in .pdf format. Another very good format is .eps.
VECTOR artwork such as .dpp or .ai, (can be converted to .pdf if you wish) , or .eps.
If using pdf format remember to convert all non standard fonts ( ie those not available within Microsoft Windows) to paths/outlines. If you don@t then our software will automatically convert text to something available on our system, which may not be to your liking.
Less Suitable (but still ok)
.jpeg,.tiff, .png, .gif, .bmp
Whilst still suitable we will have less scope to edit your designs if provided in the above formats
