Macintosh Files

Stahls' ID utilizes graphic applications for the PC. The following specifications will tell you how to save artwork from the Macintosh so it can be compatible with PC graphic applications.
Vector Files
  Note: All images that are included in the file, that were not created in the file, must be embedded into the file instead of linked. This way you should have only 1 file to submit which contains all of your artwork. For information on embedding images, please see your program user's manual.
Illustrator® All versions are accepted. Files must be saved with the .eps extension. All files that use version 8 or higher should be saved as version 8 with the .eps extension. The .eps extension must be entered as part of the file name. This is very important. For example: If saving a file named "tigers", the file name would actually need to be entered as "tigers.eps".
Freehand® All versions accepted. Files must be exported as .eps files. The .eps extension must be entered as part of the file name. This is very important. For example: If saving a file named "tigers", the file name would actually need to be entered as "tigers.eps".
Quark XPress® These files cannot be accepted at this time.
 
Bitmap Files
Bitmap files or vector files that contain bitmap images can be accepted. Grey level and full color bitmaps (such as photographs) can usually be used as provided for Digital Transfers.
PhotoShop® All versions are accepted. You need to include the file extension as part of its file name as well. For example, if saving a file named "tigers" as a .psd, the file name would actually need to be entered as "tigers.psd".
Other bitmap formats Most files with extensions .jpg, .tif, .gif, .psd and .bmp can be viewed. They do need to be saved with the extension as part of their name as well.
