Artwork should be created in Adobe Photoshop or Illustrator, CS4 or sooner. When using any other program, artwork MUST be saved as a PDF or EPS. For raster images, please send both layered and flattened images whenever possible. Layered files allow our graphics specialists to make necessary alterations if needed.
