Prepare your art

Art is one of the most important factor which decides your campaign success. Getting started by preparing your nice art in good resolution and quality. Art quality will decide how your product should look. A good art quality will bring your product become perfect. Notice that the bigger the product, the larger and higher quality the art needs.

Below is some detail specifics of art by platform


The JPEG is a file format which is used to compress digital images. The amount of compression can be changed. If an image is high quality, it will take up a large amount of storage. If it is low quality. It will take up a small amount of storage. The word JPEG is short for the Joint Photographic Experts Group which created the format.
JPEG file extensions include: .jpg .jpeg .jpe
Best for photos and images without a transparent background.
PNG (Portable Network Graphics) is a file format for image compression in lossless fashion (meaning all image information is restored when the file is decompressed during viewing). A PNG file is not intended to replace the JPEG format which is ‘lossy’ but lets the creator make a trade-off between file size and image quality when the image is compressed.
You can make one color transparent (like the background) and you can control the degree of transparency (this is also called ‘opacity’).


Maximum file size 25 Mb. No minimum file size.

Artwork dimension

File resolution
– Resolution should be between 200 — 300 DPI for images (JPEG & PNG)
Transparency gradients should be turned into a halftone pattern gradient.


Resolution and Image Quality

Just because a file has the right resolution doesn’t mean it has the right quality. Look at the sample below.


See? The resolution is right but the quality is low. Be careful with this type of file. That’s one of the reasons we recommend not using images taken from the web.

Transparency gradients
Be careful when using transparency gradients. The designer preview doesn’t show how the final printed product will look.
The preview will show the gradient as it was designed. The issue here is that for printing we use a base coat to ensure the quality and colors stand out on the product.
A solution to this issue is to convert the gradient transparency into a halftone pattern gradient. It will create the same effect without affecting the final printed product.
