REQUIRED ARTWORK SPECIFICATIONS
(made with Points and Lines)
Typical Vector File Formats: .ai .eps .pdf .svg
Vector Artwork is ideal for printing since it's universally resizable
and recolourable without loss of quality.
Bitmap / Raster Artwork
(made with Pixels)
Typical Bitmap File Formats: .jpg .bmp .png .pdf .tif .psd
Bitmap Artwork, such as photographs, are only printable if the quality is high enough.
Please contact our sales department for more information on bitmap printing.
All artwork is preferred to be in a Vector format as opposed to raster or bitmaps. However ATAC can work with almost any file type with additional charges to convert it to the file type we need.
Web graphics are not accepted for print. The resolution is too low.
JPEG files are not accepted, they must be original Vector format. Saving the JPG in an Illustrator file will not work.
All fonts must be converted to outlines or provide us with the actual font file.
For color matching we need pantone number for all colors.
Please make sure there is no overprint on your logos. To check for this in Illustrator, click on "View" from the scrolldown menu and then select the option, "Overprint Preview". If the logos do not look the same, you have an overprint that needs to be removed in the Attributes Pallet.
ATAC COLOR CHART
The ATAC color pallet is designed to make things simple because looking at 1000+ colors of every different shade can be overwhelming. ATAC has come up with a great list of color options that represent a broad color spectrum. If your project absolutely need a specific pantone color not offered by ATAC, we can formulate it for a $75.00 color matching fee. Please remember that computer screens do not necessarily render colors the way they actually are. It is best to consult a pantone book once you have narrowed down your search.
