Artwork Requirements

At Benton Trophy & Awards, Inc. & bentontrophy.com, we encourage clients to think creatively about ways to accentuate their awards by using corporate logos or clip art. Adding logos or images to an award enhances any intended message. We can accept an array of PC file extensions including .cdr, .eps, .ai, .jpeg, .tif, .gif, .pcx, or .bmp. Files should be attached by email after your order is placed via the online order form. There are two types of images Raster and Vector. If there are any questions from our artwork department, we will respond within a few business days of your order placement.

Raster Artwork = .bmp, .jpg, .gif, .tif, .pcx, .cal, .wi, .png, etc. and any other artwork that appears blurry on your computer screen, such as artwork off of a website. Raster files are made up of pixels not lines as compared to vector artwork files. Some .eps files are converted as raster files in some programs, when you convert to a vector file you should be asked to convert to curves. Some programs convert .eps files as raster files.

Vector Artwork = .cdr, .eps, .ai, .ps, .prn, wmf, etc. Vector artwork is made up of lines and or nodes as compared to pixels that make up raster artwork files. Some .eps files are converted as raster files in some programs, when you convert to a vector file you should be asked to convert to curves. Some programs convert .eps files as raster files. Highly recommended for the best possible output.

1. Must be PC compatible 

2. We can accept artwork on floppy, zip disk, compact disk, or electronic mail.

3. We prefer camera ready black and white artwork. (color will work)
