|When sending files for us
to use in the preparation of signage or other products and services
we require that all files be in such formats that we do not have to
alter, re-construct or manipulate to make them usable. If you are
not able to provide files in a compatible format we ask that you
contact the original artist of your graphics and have them provide
us with the necessary file types. If they are unable to send the
correct format we can usually make any file type usable, but we MUST
charge for these services as it can take considerable time
to rebuild files from scratch or to extract them from some program
formats. Files under 10mb may be sent as an
email attachment, larger files or numerous small files are best
burned to a memory card, thumbdrive, data CD or DVD and mailed to us at PO Box 118
McLemoresville, TN 38235.
We always require the highest resolution when receiving photographs or pixel-based images. Images found on the internet are not usually acceptable for use in signage as the resolution is too low and there is no way to create details that are not there.
We also need proof of
ownership or copyright for all images and artwork provided by the
customer, we will not unlawfully or knowingly reproduce any
artwork that you cannot prove ownership of, sorry but no exceptions
to this policy. We will provide a release form for you to fill out
before we can use your art or photos,

create a vector file version of them.
vector and bitmap files: Vector files are made up of lines, arcs,
and curves presented in a scalable mathematical format, these can be
scaled from very small to very large without losing detail and are a
must for creating signs. Bitmap images are pixel based and are mostly
fixed resolution, they can be scaled downward and made smaller but
cannot be scaled to larger sizes without losing details, these files
are used in printing photos and for website images. If you are
unsure of sending correct and ready-to-use file formats we can edit
most any file type at shop rates of $80 per hour.
