What is Production Ready Artwork?
One of the most difficult problems facing the custom imprinted industry today is the understanding of what is appropriate “Production Ready Artwork”. In the old days, “camera ready artwork” was acceptable, but in this day and age, we don’t use cameras anymore. In addition, scanning an image does not create a high quality imprint which leads to an unhappy client; therefore, we accept only high-quality digital art.
adapt to the printing process
Production Ready Artwork should not need any additional touch-up, design, color separation, or rearranging for use. Artwork when submitted is assumed to be in full compliance with laws governing copyrights, trademarks, etc. and we are not responsible for typographical errors incorporated in submitted artwork. We reserve the right to make slight alterations in copy and logos to adapt to the printing process. Torches reserves the right not to print any logo or message that is deemed inappropriate.
Are Raster Images part of your artwork?
Raster Art (Placed/Continuous Tonal Image) is “resolution-dependent”. When you change the size of the artwork, you change the resolution quality. This means that the resolution (DPI) of your file is critical to the quality of your final imprint. Artwork files should be at least 300 DPI at 100% of final size, since enlarging the graphic will decrease the resolution possibly making it look jagged or fuzzy. That is why a web file such as a .jpeg, .gif, or .png format is unacceptable because they are usually about 72 DPI and the size of the file is usually small. Grayscale images and bitmaps must be at least 600 DPI. Do not submit files with linked images, but instead embed all graphics. An example of a raster image is a photograph. Photographs are made up of pixels unlike vector artwork. Please inquire if you have any questions and our creative team can help you get your artwork ready!
