  • Font/Color Information

    • Convert text to paths, curves, or outlines (Vector Art).

    • If this is not possible, include all screen, CAD and printer fonts used in the file. 

    • Indicate any necessary color matches using the Pantone® (PMS) Color System whenever possible.

  • File Information
    • We need a copy of all linked files used in creating the artwork.  Include a separate copy of all bitmaps used in the artwork.

    • All CAD files must be "explodable" - that is, all lines, objects, blocks, text, etc. must be able to be exploded while maintaining their original desired content and position.  We often need to change fonts, layers, or other attributes that can only be altered in an exploded object.  Embedded text, bitmaps, or blocks that reference external information will prevent us from accurately converting your files. 

    • It is preferred that compressed files be self-expanding, or compressed with Winzip or PKZIP.

    • Always include, via mail or fax, a paper copy of the artwork when sending files so that we can verify your computer artwork for file content and integrity when opening.

    • Always keep a copy of your original files.  Do not send your only copy.
