Artwork Guidelines

For Sponsor Plaques, Corrugated Signage, and Banners:
  • All artwork should be submitted in the highest resolution possible to ensure no distortion when scaled to printing size
  • .EPS or .AI file format (aka vector artwork) is preferred to allow for scale to any size without distortion
  • Individual logo files should be a minimum of 100dpi at when scaled to full size. 300dpi is ideal for a sharp print
  • Banner and/or Corrugated sign layouts need to be a minimum of 200dpi, 300dpi is preferred
  • Files that appear blurry when opened on your computer, or at less than 50KB in file size, will most often result in a blurry/pixelated print
  • Any logos that are saved from email signatures or off website headers/footers are usually very small and poor quality - you should request the highest resolution logo available from each of your sponsors
  • Logos with solid color backgrounds must be edited to remove background 

GTS will accept the following (print-ready) file formats for printing:
  • Adobe Illustrator, Photoshop: .AI, .PSD
  • Vector: .EPS, .AI
  • Adobe Acrobat: .PDF
  • Conventional graphic files .JPG, .PNG, etc.
