What type of artwork is accepted?

All artwork must be digital to fit the imprint area. Orders will be produced with artwork provided. It should not need additional design, resizing, or rearranging for use.

Please Note: Anchor Wallace reserves the right not to print any logo or message that is deemed inappropriate.

Electronic Artwork

Artwork will be accepted digitally from the following programs:

Adobe Creative Cloud (PC or Mac)—with preferred format saved as PDF

Photoshop® bitmap images (B&W) should to be at least 1200 DPI to size for product being ordered. Color images should be in CMYK color space at least 300 DPI to size for product being ordered.

InDesign®—include all linked files needed for output. Also include a PDF file saved for press quality output.

Fonts should be outlined.

E-mail Artwork: Artwork should be submitted within 24 hours of sending the order. Multiple files should be compressed in either .zip or .sit format. File size limitation, when sent via e-mail,is 10MB.

Vector Art

We recommend using vector art because it produces the highest quality artwork.
It is "resolution-independent," which means it can be enlarged without affecting the quality of your imprint. Please be sure to outline all fonts when submitting vector artwork to avoid the fonts defaulting.

Raster Art (Placed/Continuous Tone Images)

Raster Art is “resolution-dependent.” When you change the size of an imprint, you change the quality. This means that the resolution (DPI) of your file is critical. Files must be at least 300 DPI at 100% of final size. Grayscale images and bitmaps must be 1200 DPI. Do not submit files with linked images. Please embed all graphics. Raster Artwork will be accepted in Photoshop® format (black-and-white .tiff, .pict, .jpeg files scanned or created at 1200 DPI [high resolution] and at approximately the actual size of the imprint area).

Vector images can be scaled infinitely without loss of clarity or degradation of image quality.

Raster images are based on pixels, so they scale with a loss of clarity.

Hard-Copy Artwork

If electronic art is not available, please provide sharp, high-contrast, color-separated or black-and-white artwork. Artwork will be returned upon request otherwise it will be discarded.


We can add text to your imprint at no additional charge.
