We need original artwork in a specific format to produce your sign in 3D. This could be a file in either .EPS, .PDF or .AI format with vectors. You should be able to get this from the person who designed your logo.
We prefer Adobe Illustrator (V3, V.8, V.10, CS, CS2, CS3, CS4). However, we also accept artwork created by any other vector based program (ie: CorelDraw & AutoCAD). If you’re working with photoshop, be sure to use work paths and save using File > Export > Paths to Illustrator.
