To get the process started quickly, email us your logo in a digital format. The preferred format is Adobe Illustrator vector files such .ai or .eps. Please convert all text to curves. We can also use Bitmap formats such as .jpg .jpeg .gif .tiff or .bmp. We will then need to spend time converting the files across into a vector format. Artwork charges apply for this method.
