Artwork Requirements


We realize that visuals play an important role in communicating your messages to people, therefore in Creative Mat, we always strive to print high quality, crisp and clear images.

Your submitted artwork is the first step to achieve this. We accept any type of files, including eps, ai, pdf, cdr and jpg. For jpg, please obtain highest resolution images, 300 DPI – 600 DPI. For others, vectorized files will typically generate the best result.

We will send the artwork proof within 24 hours after the submission.


Design Specifications


Please refer to our color chart for your color options.

Number 1-16 and letter A-P are the same, they are our 16 basic colors. Therefore, Grey 4 = Grey D = Grey 4D.

For combination colors, our machine will mix colors in 1:1 ratio. Eg. Yellow 8C = 50% Yellow 8 + 50% Gold C.

We can closely match PMS Colors for $100/color NET, one time charge.

We will advise if some parts of the design should be enlarged or modified to be able to print better. Generally, minimum thickness is 0.3″ and minimum height is 1″.

It is possible to produce gradient, however due to our limited printer resolution, we might not be able to produce smooth transition. For all cases, we will print a section of that design and send you the pictures of the result. Your approval is needed before we can proceed with the printing process.
