TIPS ON HOW TO
PREPARE GRAPHICS FILES.

We accept both Mac® and PC files and can work with virtually any software.

To ensure the highest quality output, save your images at 100 – 150dpi (dots per inch) at the finished size. Pixel files are .bmp, .tif, .jpg; the preferred format is .tif

Files for vinyl output need to contain a Vector image of your sign and/or logo. This means your text and graphics are outlined. Some programs offer an option to save or export text as vectors, curves, paths or outlines. Vector files are .ai, .pdf or .eps

Convert all fonts to curves or paths to avoid possible font substitution. This rule goes for all types of files. Save photographic images at 100% of the actual size (when possible) and at the resolution specified by your ISLAND OUTDOOR MEDIA Art Director.

Please embed linked images into the file, when possible. If you are using Adobe Photoshop, we recommend the RGB color mode for raster files. In Adobe Illustrator, we recommend the CMYK color mode for vector files.
