Artwork Guidelines

document with paperclipFor Screen Printing NLC Ink accepts most artwork files, including .gif, .jpeg, .eps, .pdfs, .ai (vector art), etc. These files must be 300 dpi or vector formats. If your artwork is not 300 DPI, it normally requires extra work resulting in an artwork charge.

Have an old logo but no artwork file?  We can help with that too.  With an experienced graphic designer on site we can work with you to recreate old logos or we would be happy to help design something new and fresh for your logo.

We Accept many file formats

Adobe Illustrator® All versions, Photoshop® & Corel Photo Paint® All versions are gladly accepted and 300 dpi is the preferred resolution for rasterized images.

Adobe Acrobat® (PDF files): PDFs can contain vector and bitmap graphics/text. They are also gladly accepted if in a high enough resolution.

Bitmaps/Jpgs (photos/web graphics): Most files with extensions .jpg, .tif, .gif, .psd and .bmp can be viewed. For Screen Printing, these files can typically only used as guides from which the artwork will be recreated.

Microsoft Word®, Microsoft Publisher®: These files may contain usable art or they will be used as a guide for recreating the art.
