Digital art files of logos or designs are created and saved from a professional graphics program or exported from a graphics program. Acceptable graphic program formats include files created in Photoshop, Freehand, Quark, PageMaker, CorelDraw, Illustrator, Microsoft Word, Powerpoint or any paint program that can export an image. Acceptable exported file formats include eps, gif, jpeg, or bmp at any resolution, but the higher the better. Any and all fonts and attachments must be included with every file type, or all fonts must be turned into paths.
Images taken from websites are acceptable for creating digitized embroidery files, so long as they are large enough to see clearly.
Paper copies of logos or designs can be used but should be presented at the highest resolution possible, and in a color format. Letterhead is an acceptable option (more so than business cards, because typically the logos on business cards are small and printed on textured paper). We can also use black and white line art as the tracing pattern, so long as any color-breaks required are designated in some way.
The bigger and cleaner the provided art, the easier it is to digitize and the more accurate the final result. Color-breaks must be made apparent on this artwork, so that these color-breaks can be built in to the digitized file.
