Having trouble uploading your art?

STEP ONE:

Double check your art is properly formatted:

  • 1.5 MB or less in size
  • vector format (.ai, .eps, .pdf)
  • high resolution (minimum of 300 ppi)
  • one color
  • all font has been outlined
  • all font is larger than 12pt (or no spaces less than 1/16” in all font and graphics) to prevent the ink from filling in.
  • allow a minimum of 1" margins on all sides from your art to the edge of the box panels
  • transparent background
If you have an art file that is complete but is not a vector file, we may be able to convert that for you for little to no fee. Extensive editing and other design services start at $39.00. Please contact us at design@ecoenclose.com for more information on this.

STEP TWO:

If your art file is oversized, you're going to get an unfortunate error when attempting your upload. Most vector file created in Illustrator are less than 2MB.

Why is yours so large? The most common mistake we see is pasting of a raster image (.tif, .gif, .jpeg, or .png) into your vector art file. A classic example is the addition of a social media icon. Use only vector art (.ai, .eps) whenever possible. When vector art is unavailable, try the work-around demonstrated in this screencast. I was able to reduce a file from 4.55 MB to 1 MB with just a few clicks in my Illustrator CS6.

Take a moment to view this screencast on reducing your art file size in less than a minute:
