When submitting your artwork to Card USA, Inc. please make sure you adhere to these guidelines:
Illustrations and logos containing intricate detail should not be reversed. NEVER USE a font smaller than 5 point. Do not use True Type fonts. Only use Postscript or OpenType fonts.
All fonts used (screen and printer fonts) must be supplied with the file (including fonts used in support files). For the italic and bold styles, use the
corresponding font instead of applying styles. When using non-latin fonts (Hebrew, Chinese, Arabic…) please vectorize the fonts (convert to outlines).
Card USA will accept files from any version of the following software applications: QuarkXPress®, Adobe Illustrator®, Adobe InDesign® and Adobe Photoshop®. Files created in other software applications must be supplied as TIFF or EPS and must not require any modifications. Send only the necessary files to print (no duplicates or unnecessary files.) If you do not initially provide your layered Photoshop® files, have them ready to send in the event that we need to adjust them to our specifications.
- USB Flash drive, CD or DVD
- FTP (ask your Sales Associate)
All files other than JPEGs must be compressed using Stuff it or Zip format.
