Programs and Formats
Vector art is preferred. Vector images can be resized without any loss of quality. Please note that placing or importing photographs, bitmap, or raster images into a drawing program does not convert them into vector artwork. If your artwork contains a placed or embedded raster image (PSD, TIFF, JPEG, CPT, EPS), the original raster image file should be included. They must pre-approved by Custom Green Promos too.
We accept the following programs and formats:
ADOBE ILLUSTRATOR—Preferred Vector Art Program
Save as native Illustrator .ai file, Illustrator Default PDF with the “Preserve Illustrator Editing Capabilities” box check-marked.
COREL DRAW—Version X8 and lower
Save as native Corel .cdr file or Adobe PDF.
Colors must be separated by at least 1⁄8” of surrounding clear space to allow for color movement. Please note that some color movement will still occur. Designs with tighter registration must be pre-approved.
Fonts and Line Rules
If we do not have the exact font you used, the text in your art will default to a less attractive font changing the look of your design. Converting your fonts to outlines, paths, or curves eliminates this hazard by changing your fonts into vector shapes. This ensures that your artwork will print exactly how you expect it to look.
1 point lines or rules.
10 point fonts. Thin serif fonts are not recommended.
For best results, artwork containing halftones must be pre-approved and is available on select bag styles. Halftones are imprinted with a 30-line screen. Tint percentages for areas in the art containing halftones should range from 20% to 60%. Areas less than 20% may not print and areas greater than 60% may fill in and become a solid color. Designs that contain gradients or blends may need alterations for optimum print quality and will require a final, signed proof approval.
