Artwork Guidelines

ColorBurst can develop your project from concept to printed piece, or we can help you select the best products to showcase the artwork you supply. The ColorBurst art department uses the Adobe Creative Suite, CS6. Customer supplied artwork that is submitted as print ready, will be handled free of charge. If supplied artwork is not print ready, art department fees may be applied.

Please feel free to contact our art department with any questions:

Vector Art

Vector Graphics

Vector art is non-resolution dependent. Vector graphics can be resized easily without losing image quality. Acceptable File Extensions: .eps .ai .pdf .svg .odg

Tips for Creating Usable Vector Art

  • Convert all text to outlines.
  • All spot colors MUST be specified as Pantone® (PMS) Solid Uncoated.

Raster Graphics

Raster Art

Raster art is resolution dependent. Resizing raster artwork will directly affect image quality. Acceptable File Extensions: .psd .tiff .jpg

Tips for Creating Usable Raster Art

  • Layered .psd files are strongly recommended. Each color needs to be on a separate layer.
  • 72 dpi is NOT print quality - For best results, create artwork at a minimum of 300 dpi at final print size.

Imprint Sizes

Maximum screen printing area is 13” wide by 15” high. Oversized prints and wrap-around designs will require multiple placements. Designs will be sized to industry standards unless otherwise specified.

Artwork Approval

All artwork, including artwork for repeat orders, must be approved prior to production. Customers may request a press proof before full production run. Please review your PO and artwork carefully. ColorBurst will complete the order according to the specifications outlined on the PO, using the artwork that has been approved by the customer. Once the final artwork has been approved, ColorBurst will not be held responsible for errors in artwork. Art charges exceeding $150.00 must be paid in full when final art is approved.
