We prefer Adobe Illustrator CS or higher file in CMYK color mode or EPS Vectored artwork with all art embedded and all text changed to outlines/paths/curves. File should be 150dpi or higher. The artboard should be the exact sign size, where any bleed extends beyond the artboard or crop area by 1/4" or more. Indicate any custom cutting with a 1pt single color line as a separate vectored image shape or separate layer.
We support Adobe Photoshop CS or higher file in CMYK color mode. The file should be 150dpi or higher, flattened and saved in .psd format. If the artwork bleeds, the Photoshop canvas should be .5" larger on every edge.
Raster images (.jpg, .bmp, .tiff) should be 150dpi or larger. Please DO NOT submit images that are .gif files off the internet.
PageMaker, Quark, Word, Publisher, Excel, InDesign, files saved from the web, raster logos, and scanned logos are unacceptable. PDFs or EPS files containing embedded artwork under 150dpi are unacceptable. EPS, AI, or PDF files containing raster logos are also unacceptable.
Submitting Completed Artwork for Vehicle Graphics & Wraps
Vehicle wraps should be saved to an accurate template (Check with Signs for Success to see if we have the correct template for your Make, Model, and Year vehicle or created from a photo + measurements). Wrap artwork should be ≥72dpi and in Illustrator or Photoshop only. Artwork must provide for the curvature of the vehicle as well as 6" to 10" extending beyond the edge of the vehicle. Text should have bleed enough around for flexibility in installation to move graphics to fit vehicle body lines, openings, etc.
