Artwork Instructions

Artwork in digital format should be submitted for any custom order including but not limited to your custom printed ID or membership card, badge reel, lanyard, ID Badge Backer or any custom product order where artwork is required.

Follow these artwork instructions to ensure your custom product is produced with the best quality output possible.

File Submissions

All electronic art files, including company logo, need to be provided in one of the below digital vector-based formats. Vector-based artwork is best obtained by contacting your Marketing Department.

    • Vector-based formats:
      1. Adobe Illustrator CS5 or less (*.ai)
      2. *.eps
      3. Corel Draw X5 or less (*.cdr)
    • All text should be saved as curves or outlines
    • Call out PMS number(s) wherever applicable and note that files created using RGB values will be converted to CMYK printing

Color Photos

Make sure files are at least 300dpi for best quality.

Bitmap-based formats:

  • *.tif
  • *.bmp
  • *. jpg


When providing us with artwork that contains images that will bleed over-the-edge of the card, the image/artwork must be provided at 1/8” larger then the final card size.  See the bleed size in ‘’Credit Card Size Dimension’’.


If vector artwork is not available, IDentiphoto is happy to lay out your design on your behalf.  We charge a $125 minimum fee then bill in 1/4 hour increments at $125/hour.  You may be required to provide us with a business card, letterhead or brochure to enable us to duplicate the appropriate artwork.


If you do not have a digital format of your logo, provide us with the contact information for your marketing department, or contact our art department at 1-800-860-9111.

Credit Card Size Dimension

Credit Card Size PVC – 2.125” x 3.375”, with bleed 2.375” x3.625”.  If your project is for a size other than credit card, contact us for dimensions specific to your product.

Note: Color shown on the computer or printed from your printer may not be an accurate representation of the final printed color. The color of the final product may vary from CMYK specs, PMS numbers, or chips provided because of heat that may be used to make the card, brightness of substrates, differing ink batches, and variation in the printing process. This variation is limited by industry standards.
