Excalibur takes great care to ensure that your custom products are manufactured with the highest quality appearance. Whether we are engraving a plaque for you, printing a banner or just putting your logo on some nice gifts for your employees - we want to represent your brand as professionally as possible. To do that we need to ask that you submit your artwork and logo files in the following format(s). This will ensure that your products will have the sharpest and truest color and details possible, and it will allow us to proceed with your project without any delays or charges for artwork clean-up/redesign.
Please let us know if you have any questions about the specifications listed below:
All orders should be accompanied by digital artwork files if at all possible. Artwork can be submitted via email to firstname.lastname@example.org. We can also transfer files from portable media such as a CD/DVD or flash drive. Large files should be compressed utilizing WinZip.
"Line Art" or "Vector Art" is preferred, and may be required for some projects. Image files (jpeg format) may be acceptable, but must be "Camera Ready" with a resolution of at least 600 x 600 dpi. Artwork charges may be necessary to ensure proper preparation for production.
Preferred/accepted file formats include:
Adobe Illustrator files (.ai)
Encapsulated Postscript files (.eps)
Portable Document Format files (.pdf)
Corel Draw files (.cdr)
Image files (.jpeg)
Color files are acceptable for print projects (such as banners, screen printing, etc.) but black and white files (no half-tones) are preferred for projects that require engraving/etching (plaques, awards, etc.).
Color-matching services are available if your project requires specific logo colors (additional charges may apply).
Excalibur will be glad to review your artwork and logo files at no charge and provide you with a complete estimate (if applicable) to prepare your layouts for production. We also provide digital proofs of your designs prior to your production at no charge.
Please let us know if you have any questions or need assistance with the submission of your artwork.
