Art Specifications

To get your product to you in a timely manner, please submit art with these considerations.

Artwork create in Adobe Illustrator is preferred. Please save files for version CS compatibility. We can also
accept art created in Corel Draw. Please save these files for version 7.0 compatibility.

Send all logos in digital format, along with any special guidelines or corporate style guide if available. Digital
vectored logos and electronic art files are preferred over art slicks and bit-mapped images (unless they are
high resolution Photoshop files). We can recreate almost any art that you provide, however this will extend the
time period required to complete your project.

Include all color information as PANTONE Matching System (PMS) or in CYMK.

Scanned images should be supplied as Photoshop EPS or TIFF files with a minimum resolution of 300 dpi. If
your art department or agency is supplying an image that has been created in Adobe Photoshop format with
layers, please provide a copy of the file that has not been flatten (with all image layers intact). Although this
increases file size, this will allow us to make color corrections or your suggested changes easier. Please DO
NOT send JPG or GIF image files. These formats are generally not high-resolution and are not suitable for
print reproduction.

If working in Illustrator, please convert all type to path or outlines if possible. Include all fonts that were used in
your file so we can make changes or revisions at a latter date if necessary.

Please provide a hard-copy print out of your file or a JPG image (if sending via E-mail) for our reference.

You may E-mail your art files directly to art@smsaonline.com but please compress the files (Stuff-It or ZIP
works best). Stuffing or zipping the files insure they will arrive complete and uncorrupted by ISP or company
servers. If your files are large, they can be up-loaded to our FTP site. Please contact us for details.

We also accept art on CD, ZIP or floppy disk.
