Preparing your Graphics
If possible, send us your artwork in EPS, AI or editable PDF format (Vector). These are file formats. We may be able to use jpegs (Raster) for digital transfers or embroidery however for screen printing and for an accurate mockup we do require vectored art in one of the formats mentioned above.
The Equine Designer requires file to saved as Illustrator SVG. Speak to your logo designer for more help.
Don’t have your art in the right format? No worries, we can help (part of our concierge service). Before you go down that path though, ask around. Have you had business cards made before? Does your organisation have a style guide? Have you had screenprinting done in the past? If the answer to any of these questions is yes you may already have your art in the correct format. If you are not sure reach out to us and we can discuss it with you. Contact us today.
Equine Designer supported formats
- Vector SVG (Preferred)
- PNG (with or without transparent backgrounds)
