Artwork Guidelines
We are happy to work with customer-supplied artwork -- to make sure your order is of the highest
quality, we ask that you follow these Artwork Guidelines.

Instructions on sending artwork to Jeffcoat Signs

Sending files in digital form:

We work in a vector format for the vast majority of our projects. Our machines follow these precise
mathematical lines to cut, trace, slice, route, and otherwise construct our products. We can work
with files created in vector drawing programs, usually without any cleanup on our part. These
programs include: Corel, Freehand, Adobe Illustrator and the like. Any vector program able to
export an '.eps' file should suffice.

Make sure all fonts used are converted to outlines before saving file. We work in Adobe Illustrator
and CorelDraw files for output, so these are our preferred programs, but others will do as long as
they are saved in the Encapsulated PostScript (.eps) format. This avoids a font mismatch or
absence altogether on our end. Please also create art in a scale (of any kind) if possible.

Raster formats such as GIF, BMP, TIFF, PICT, AND JPEG will work for printed graphics however
some will require a 'cleaning up' on our part to put these pieces of art into a vector format.
Depending on resolution, size, and color depth of bitmapped raster file sent to us.



Occasionally our customers require us to produce their logo or
graphics in a
digital print format, if you fall into this category, please
follow the guidelines below.

Bitmap files (JPG, GIF, TIFF, BMP, PSD, PDF) need to be 300dpi at full-size of your sign



Sending us your artwork

We prefer to have files sent to us in digital format, already cleaned up and ready to be reproduced
as is. We can work from flat art as well. Camera ready slicks are preferred, but we can work with
anything. Just keep in mind that we can only do so much. If we get bad (ragged) artwork we will
clean it up as best we can. It is a good idea to send us the best artwork you have available.

If sending flat artwork, do not send originals! We will make every attempt to return any art you send
to us, but we will not be held responsible for such return.
