Flag artwork should be set up to allow at least two inches for hems on all four edges of the flag. Irregularly shaped flags, pennants and other shapes should also allow the two inch edge space.

We assume you know, or have someone that is knowledgeable about computer graphics. If not, contact our art department for assistance in art file development. Microsoft Word, Powerpoint, Excel and Publisher files were not designed for professional print production. We do not recommend using any of those programs to create art files. If that is all you have, send the file and we will comment accordingly.

Design Submission Checklist and Recommendations

Here’s a checklist for submitting your art:

  1. Convert all fonts to outlines or include fonts used in upload.
  2. Use vector art when possible (.ai, .eps, .pdf)
  3. Embed all links (between 96-300 DPI at size)
  4. Use solid coated PANTONE (pms) if color matches are critical
  5. Save the file as “companyname-mmddyy.eps” or your order number.
