If any of these vector art files contain imported or placed images (pixel, bitmap, TIFF, JPEG, etc.)
please include those files separately - even if the images are embedded.

If the artwork is multi-colored, Spot or PMS colors must be specified unless the final print is

Always send color print or hardcopy of final design along with your order.
