General Information for Submitting Artwork, Text, and Logos. Our Art Staff will assist and answer any question you may have, or recommend designs & products that fit your requirements.
Send your logo & artwork to: artwork at aztecip.com We prefer art files in vector format such as Adobe Illustrator EPS, CorelDraw, AI or SVG (Scalable Vector Graphic) formats, however we can use JPG or TIFF files if the resolution is 300 dpi (dots per inch) or higher. If you don't have artwork, send us an email describing what you're looking for and we will do sample layouts of your awards. You can pick from the samples or give us your feedback. If we need to recreate your art, contact our art department for help.
We strongly encourage graphics to be submitted to us as a vector format file. A Vector logo is good for print media purposes where as a raster logos are good for digital/screen applications. Vector logo formats include .ai .svg .eps Raster logo formats are commonly .tiff .jpeg .gif .pcx .bmp In addition our engraved products can only accept files that are black and white. If you would like a color logo please select a product that uses sublimation printing
Once we receive your logo(s) and text files, we will prepare artwork layout(s) for you. When the artwork layouts are complete, we will email you the layout proof(s) in Adobe PDF format. Please proofread your award(s) carefully to minimize mistakes. Once you have reviewed our artwork proof(s), email your approval or let us know of any changes.
We will make the changes and send the revision back to you for final approval.
Send your text to: artwork @aztecip.com. Text layout can be in your email or as an attachment in word doc or txt format. Simply explain the layout in which you want your award to appear. Also if you prefer center font types, indicate the ones you want us to use.
