ARTWORK DESIGN FILES SPECIFICATIONS
Does my artwork file need to be in a specific format?
Yes please send us your artwork in vector format. Please refer to the detailed file specifications below.
When uploading or sending us your artwork, you confirm that you have the right to use the image(s) supplied.
What is vector format?
The simplified, and short, answer is that they are files that do not become blurry or pixelated no matter how far you zoom in on them when viewed on a computer screen. As such, many software programs which serve as the main operating system for our printing/engraving machines, require vector formats in order to ensure the resolution is high enough to achieve a high quality finished product.
For more information on vector graphics, click here to view the Wikipedia page.
Acceptable vector format are:
Adobe Illustrator version CS6( .ai or .eps file format).
If your file is of different version, please save as version CS6.
- All text must be converted to curves/paths
- All outlines must be converted to object/paths.
- All objects/paths must be combined and not grouped.
- All geometry must be a professional quality with a reasonable amount of nodes (control points).
- A vector format file containing embedded bitmaps is not a true vector artwork and therefore cannot be used.
- White geometry cannot be used as a mask to hide any parts of design.
- Overlapping geometries must be welded to form one path.
- If the above guidelines are not met then artwork charges will be incurred.
Acceptable bitmap digital artwork formats
B/W bitmaps (TIFF, JPG, BMP, and @300 dpi scanned 5x actual size – max A4) can be used but will incur additional conversion charge. All conversion work must be confirmed by email.
Variable data; Personalisation – seralisation
Variable data (Names, serial numbers, etc) MUST be sent as an Excel file with one variable per cell, all within separate columns. Each engraving position is take one cell at a time, for example cell AI = John Smith. Type must be sent case sensitive. Front type, alignment, colour, etc are not important. Other file formats cannot be accepted for input of variable data.
If you are still unsure about the required artwork format, please call us on +852 8191 1595 or email [email protected]
Can I see a draft of the final artwork before you print/engrave my item(s)?
Order over HK$5000 quality for a complimentary digital mockup otherwise they may be purchased online individually. We then send it to you for your final approval before printing/engraving. Mockups include two complimentary revisions. Additional mockups must be purchased if further revisions are required.
Will this exact design be used to create the finished product?
No. The mockup is only meant to assist in creating a visual representation of what the final product may look like. Often times we will require a higher resolution image for printing/engraving, or may require special fonts to be sent to us. Additionally, we reserve the right to exercise our professional judgement to better fit the physical product.
Why do I need to have my logo converted?
Standard image format such as .jpg, .png, .gif, and .tif may not always be printed quality, high resolution files, especially if they have been save form the web. Converting your logo from standard image format, also known as bitmap, to a vector format will ensure your logo is high resolution. Additionally, it is the industry standard for many of our printing/engraving machines to require a high resolution vector graphic in order to produce a high quality finished product.
What are the advantages of having a logo in vector format?
Having a vectorized version of your logo means you always have a high resolution file on hand. This will come in handy for use in print advertising and marketing campaigns as they require high resolution images to print lossless photos or graphics, particularly in very large print adverbs. In addition, most new smartphones and tablets come standard with retina quality screen which require a high resolution than standard image sizes in order to utilize the full extent of the visual spectrum. Anything less will appear fuzzy and pixelated on screen.
