  • Types of Digital Artwork

    Vector Artwork - Images that have their information stored geometrically and can be easily scaled to any size without loss of quality. Generally produced with graphics applications such as Corel Draw and Adobe Illustrator.


    Raster Artwork - Images that have their information stored as pixels or dots and do not scale well without a loss of quality (jagged, stair stepped edges etc.). Generally produced by digital cameras, scanners and painting applications such as Corel Photo Paint and Adobe Photoshop.


    Artwork in vector format is preferred. Artwork should be submitted without grayscales, halftones or color unless being used for color reproduction. If your artwork contains specific fonts that are to be reproduced, it should be converted to curves (Corel) or outlines (Adobe) prior to submission.


    Acceptable Storage Media

    If a file cannot be sent via email, you may send us a physical media copy on either CD or USB Memory Key.


    Acceptable PC File Formats

    Here is the list of file formats that we can use in order of preference:
    *Note- If artwork is to be screen printed we would like it to be color separated.


    Vector Formats:
  • .cdr (Corel Draw)
  • .eps (Encapsulated Postscript)
  • .ai (Adobe Illustrator)
  • .pdf (Portable Document Format)

  • Raster Formats:
  • .tif (TIFF Bitmap)
  • .jpg
  • .gif


  • Alternative Artwork Forms

    Although EAG prefers digital art, we recognize that it is not always possible. The following can be used in black & white or color:

  • Laser Printout
  • Photocopies
  • Inkjet Printout
  • Business Cards
  • Photos
  • Patches
  • Faxes are the worst form of artwork. We prefer not to use them.


  • These are just some basic guidelines to help you through the process. If you have any questions, concerns or problems please contact us for help. Every job we do is different and we are happy to service your specific needs.
