Adobe Illustrator EPS files are the preferred format we  accept,  and the least likely to require additional clarifications.

Business cards, letterheads, faxes and laser prints are NOT acceptable. PDF, DOC, PUB, TIF, BMP, JPG and GIF file formats are NOT acceptable as artwork. These types of "art" files are for viewing or using on a website, NOT printing. (ex: Logo files created in Microsoft Word, Publisher, PowerPoint, or home picture editing programs)  If you are unsure, then email us the file.

We have a full service Art department which can clean-up, re-draw, or re-create your logo for additional charges. (requires up to one-week). Please inquire.
