Graphics Formats for Serkin Promotions

Artwork

In this industry, “artwork” is defined as files sent for printing or embroidery. Below are the details of what we need from you.

Embroidery

We require DST files. If digitizing is required, send us the file an acceptable format listed above.

Format

We need AI, CDR, EPS, PDF or PSD files. Make sure all text and curves are converted to outlines.

If you have not another choice but to send a TIF or JPEG it must be at least 300 dpi and scaled to size. Colours should be CMYK. Feel like we’re speaking a foreign language? Call us at 905.881.8798 and we’ll help!

Scanned Images

All images that are scanned must be a minimum of 600 dpi.

Size Files up to 8MB are acceptable…after that, they’re just too big.

Software

Our graphics computers are Windows-based PCs, and therefore we need compatible format files. The factory uses the latest version of CorelDraw.

Submission

All files should be emailed to Ester at orderdesk@serkinpromotions.com. Please include any pertinent details in your email.

Unsupported Files

We cannot and do not accept QuarkXPress, Pagemaker, InDesign and Freehand files. Additionally, Microsoft programs are not graphics programs and we cannot accept them. Need artwork re-done? Let us know, we’ll do it for a reasonable price!
