Send all logos in digital format, along with a 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).

Although this increase file size, this will allow us to make color corrections or your suggested changes easier. Please do not send low resolution JPG or GIF files as they are not suitable for print reproduction.

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