Artwork Guidelines

The following guidelines have been designed to make it as easy as possible for you to supply your own artwork or images. Please do not hesitate to contact us for further assistance.

Vector files (outlines/curves) are the preferred option for images.

Vector artwork is resolution independent i.e. it can be scaled to any size without changing the quality of the art.

Preferred artwork format:

All Adobe applications: Photoshop, Illustrator, Acrobat PDF, Indesign, Quark Xpress, Corel Draw

Supplied artwork should have all fonts and images converted to curves.

Unacceptable file formats:

All Microsoft Office applications: Word, Publisher, Excel or PowerPoint and any other word processing formats.

Useful tips:

For bronze casting all artwork is mono (black is raised). Colour is not acceptable.

All artwork is given contraction of 1.0152 to allow for shrinkage i.e. a plaque size of 305mm x 206mm x 1.0152 = 309.6mm x 209mm.

Font sizes should not be less than 5mm for the ‘x' height i.e. 24pt for lower case lettering and 20pt for upper case.
