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.
