We require the art file(s) you send to be in vector format. Raster files will not work.
Vector graphics are shapes and designs using points, lines and curves. So whereas a raster image of a 1” x 1” square at 300 dpi will have 300 individuals pieces of information, a vector image will only contain four points to each section or part of a design, one for each corner of that section or area; the computer will uses math to “connect the dots” and fill in all of the missing information.
We know that for most of you this description is a bunch of gobbley goo so basicly, vector art is editable and that is what we need.
Popular vector file format extensions include: eps, ai and pdf. Programs such as Corel Draw, Adobe illustrator are vector design programs. If your logo or design was done in either of those programs you can save the file and send. In Corel Draw, we need it in version x4 or older, in Ilustrator we need it in CS3 or older.
If you only have an art file in a format such as JPG or TIF, you can send that and we may be able to re-create it. If you only have the idea of a design and do not have any artwork we can design it for you. Part of the mold master cost includes some design work, if the design you want has a lot of detail there may be a design fee. Every design is different so once we see what it is you want we will be able to determine whether there will be an additional charge or not, in any case the art fee isn't very much.
Once we have the design, we will lay out a sample proof for your review and send that to you along with the pricing.
