Artwork Requirements

Camera-ready artwork refers to a computer generated (digital) file originally created within one of the software programs listed below. Scans and images taken from the Web are not usable for high-quality printing. Your camera-ready artwork should be the exact size you wish to have printed. Please include the name of the representative you are working with in the subject line of the email.

Adobe® Illustrator®  (.ai, .eps, .pdf)
Please convert all text to outlines (Select all text on page, go to menu bar, then select Type - Create Outlines).

Adobe® Acrobat®  (.pdf)
Only PDFs created from Illustrator and InDesign can be used. Please make sure that all text/fonts have been embedded.

Adobe® InDesign® (.ind, .pdf)
Please convert all text to outlines (select all text on page, go to menu bar, then select Type - Create Outlines). All supporting graphic files (photos, images, clip art, etc.), need to be included (make sure all graphic files are linked in document, go to menu bar, select File - Package).

Adobe® Photoshop® (.psd, .tif)
Files need to have a minimum resolution of 300 dpi at actual print size. Scanned or website images will not result in a high-quality print.


Associated Bag's Art Department operates on Macintosh computers, but we can work with PC files as well. To ensure quality printing, files created on a PC need to have not only all of the graphic files, but also the printer and screen fonts included.

Additional artwork charges may apply for the following file types:
.JPG, .GIF, .BMP, .EXE, .PUB, .WPD, .DOC, or Paint programs.

Email your digital file to artwork@associatedbag.com. Please include the name of the customer service or sales representative you are working with in the subject line.
