We recommend using a vector-based program to design your pad printing art, as the resulting files are resolution independent and can be resized without pixelating.
Adobe Illustrator is the most widely used design program, and preparing your art in the .ai format is recommended.
Macromedia Freehand and Flash are alternative programs that can be used, both of which can export files in .ai format.
Both .eps or .pdf are also acceptable vector formats, so long as the files are free of compression.
Submit .ai files, or an un-rasterized Vector format like .eps or .pdf.
50 MB file size maximum.
Be sure to convert all text to outlines.
We will print the art as sized in the file unless directed explicitly to do otherwise in your related design.
Amplifier will create the color separations.
We use Pantone Solid Coated to match colors.
