Artwork Files

Lyle's preferred software application is Adobe Illustrator - Version CS5 or less. Artwork should be sent in Vector format vs. Raster format.

Vector graphics or geometric modeling is the use of geometrical primitives such as points, lines, curves, and polygons to represent images in computer graphics. It is used by contrast to the term raster graphics which is the representation of images as a collection of pixels (dots). See samples below.
