Art Guidelines & FTP Instructions


Acceptable File Formats

Illustrator CS2 or below.

Photoshop 7 or below.

Quark 6 or below (not preferred).

Photoshop and Illustrator are preferred, as they are more suitable applications for large format printing. Quark files may cause fragmented text or gradients. If this occurs, art time will be charged to fix the files. We recommend that you export the files as an EPS and convert all fonts to outlines.



Fonts must be provided or text must be converted to outlines. If you are working on a PC, please provide True Type fonts or convert all text to outlines.



All rasterized files must be between 100-120 pixels per inch (PPI) at full size.



Files must be built as one image. Be aware of panel breaks and try to minimize the amount of text that crosses over panels. Do not use Quark to layout your artwork for murals, use Illustrator or Photoshop. Illustrator special effects that mimic Photoshop effects, such as glows, transparencies or drop shadows are not supported for mural output.



All files must be CMYK.

Provide hardcopy layouts on all graphics.

If Pantone colors are used, please indicate on hard copy. Any critical colors pertaining to logos or corporate identity should be called out as Pantone coated or uncoated.
