Printing data requirements
How to create the printing data?
For single color prints or engravings, it is best to have your data in black and white and in original size. The maximum printing and engraving sizes can be found on our › product information page. For multicolored motifs please indicate the desired colors (HKS or Pantone).
For more information, see our page › printing data requirements or the correspondent › PDF.
Basically, vectorised data is best to use (such as EPS or PDF). Please make sure to convert the font used into paths.
If you don't have any vectorised data please make sure that your image data has a resolution of 300 dpi (better up to 1200 dpi). So the graphics team can convert your image data into printable data (costs according to expense).

We can use all common vectorised file types, as there are: AI, EPS or PDF. Other vector files can be used as well (Corel Draw and similar). These should only be used »in case of need« though.
