Supply Your Own Artwork

Most of our customers supply their own artwork and if you decide to do this, please take note of the file formats accepted. These can be found further down the page. Please feel free to contact us if you are unsure about these file formats.

Graphics & Artwork Service

Please note that Bros Engraving can supply a very affordable graphics and artwork service, utilising vector graphic drawing which is created with hot foil printing in mind. Our artwork and design service compliments our die-making perfectly, as we are aware of the obstacles that may arise from this form of printing.

Receiving Artwork

We can receive artwork via email attachment or you can deliver your files on CD or flash drive. We have a HSPA+ connection and are better able to download your email attachments quickly, and thus getting your job into the production queue speedily. Please take the time to prepare your art files.

Files Supplied / File Formats Accepted

Artwork Specifications

Freehand MX, CoralDraw X5, Adobe Illustrator CS5 and Adobe Photoshop CS5. We prefer PDF files with all text converted to Outlines/Curves. This eliminates the need to send fonts with your image. If files are saved properly crossing platforms from Mac to PC won’t be a problem.

In Design, all type fonts should be outlined, then export as .eps or .pdf file. Quark or PageMaker documents should be exported as .eps or .pdf files and checked by you for accuracy. If sending a .tiff file or .jpeg, scan at 400 dpi minimum. If sending a Word Document, you must fax a copy so we can verify that the fonts are correct.
