Physical Media:

2)    FONTS
Remember to rasterize fonts in Photoshop or save to outlines in Illustrator. While our graphic department has an extensive font library, there are still many more fonts available. By rasterizing or saving fonts to outlines, you ensure that your text will print in the font you intended. Fonts not rasterized or saved to outlines risk being substituted automatically with another font type.


3)    RESOLUTION
Beware of using images from the web; their resolution is too low to produce quality prints. Web images will look grainy when blown up for large format printing. To proof how your artwork will look at final size, view your images/proofs at 100%

4)    ADOBE PHOTOSHOP

Please flatten photoshop files before submission.
