USB Artwork Guidelines
In order to produce your USB Project as effectively as possible, we ask that customers please read our Printed USB Memory Stick Guidelines thoroughly.
Once your order has been placed, please note that in order to re-produce your artwork effectively as possible, and to be of a quality represented in any Visual Mock-Ups, we will require a high-resolution version of your logo, if it has not been provided previously for the purposes of the production of a mock-up, ideally in one of the following formats:
• .AI File (Adobe Illustrator)
• .EPS File
• .PSD File (Adobe Photoshop)
• Hi-Resolution .JPG File
• Hi-Resolution .PNG File
• Hi-Resolution .PDF File
USB Memory Sticks Artwork Guidelines
Uploading A High Resolution Logo
Resolution determines the maximum size at which an image can be printed while retaining quality. The higher the file resolution is, the better the print quality will be. We recommend a resolution of 300 PPI (points per inch) at the dimensions your image will be printed. However, if you can only have a lower resolution image we might be able to work with it dependent on the situation.
Vector vs. Raster Art
Logos that are simple, such as the name of your company, work best for engraving. Logos containing significant details (i.e. gradients, colors, shapes) will not work well being engraved. A way to determine if your logo can be engraved is if you can imagine your logo in black. If it loses all detail, it should be printed rather than engraved.
Individual product pages show the printable dimensions of our products. Please keep in mind that these are not precise. They are meant to give you an approximate indication of how much space you have to work with. It is highly recommended that you stay within these boundaries, though sometimes we can work outside of them.
Whilst pantone colours are matched by our graphics team as closely as we can, many companies have specific guidelines regarding the pantone colours used for company-related products. Please check if this applies to your companies before continuing with a 1-4 colour spot print.
What is the Difference between a High-Resolution Logo and a Low Resolution Logo?
Providing a high quality logo ensures that your logo is printed crisply and clearly with no pixilation. Providing a low quality logo often means that pixilation will occur, the image becomes grainy and the edges aren’t crisp, leading to a blurred, unclear finish. It is important that the highest possible quality logo is provided to us to ensure your brand is represented with a clean, professional print.
