Artwork File Formats We Can Use
We are more than happy to help get your lanyard artwork ready for production free of charge as part of your order. All we need is for you to send us your logo in a suitable file format (please see below) together with the Pantone references for your logo and lanyard colours and we'll do the rest.
Preferred Logo File Formats:
- EPS file (Enhanced Postscript)
- AI file (Adobe Illustrator)
- PDF File (if vector-derived)
Sometimes We Can Also Use:
- Hi-Res Jpeg/Tiff Files
- Hi-Res PNG Files
*** Note that we CANNOT accept artwork in Microsoft Office file formats (including Publisher, Word, Powerpoint etc). ***
The best thing to do is to send through what you have and we'll let you know if we can use it. If you have ever had any company stationery printed (letterheads, business cards etc.) and you still have the artwork on file, we may be able to grab your logo from that.
Most logos can be printed successfully on lanyards, unless particularly detailed. Generally, the more complicated the logo, the wider the lanyard ribbon should be for clarity. Full colour lanyards must have very high resolution (>300ppi) or vector images for best results.
If you have a specific font to be used for any text on your lanyards, we may need you send through the font file. If you are supplying your own artwork files, it may be better to convert text to outlines when creating your artwork file. This gets around the need for the font file but means we cannot directly edit the text if necessary (except to adjust the size)
