Computer Graphics Capabilities
email logo@TSGsports.com
.
To better serve you better, we do use both Mac and PC's, but our main and graphic platform of choice is the Apple Macintosh (the industry standard). The primary software program used is Adobe Illustrator  (also the industry standard) due to the vector file format's advantages in screening images onto balls and t shirts. BUT, we are able to use files in many formats anywhere from sketches to faxes to bitmapped images.
.
  SENDING FILES
  • Please export the files down to Adobe Illustrator with 

  • fonts turned into outlines. 
  • Make sure the file or your email specifies all the spot colors to be used (avoid screens- all solids or spot colors)
  • If fonts are to be used in any redesign by our creative staff, please specify the font names used 

  • OR sent a second file with live fonts (not turned into outlines)
  • Please use stuffit (mac) or zip compression (pc) to protect the files in transit.
  • Send it in direct to:

  • logo@TSGsports.com
.
VECTOR
If you are sending artwork, we prefer if available vector type files. These are files that have been created in programs such as CorelDraw, Adobe Illustrator and Macromedia Freehand. This will insure the integrity of your logo through the process. Plus in some cases gives our designers more freedom to design you something special. A final advantage is that the files tell our designers valuable information such as the colors originally called out for the job by the original designer.
.
ILLUSTRATOR
If you are an Adobe Illustrator user, please save your files as Illustrator files. Also convert all text to OUTLINES. This can be done simply by selecting the text and choosing the "Create Outlines" selection under the "Type" menu. It is very important that you do this, as we may not have your fonts on any of our computers. Also, have the designer spec the colors used on the logo with color names called out.
.
FREEHAND
As with Illustrator files, just be sure to turn all fonts into outlines. This avoids having to send fonts, match text, and spelling errors. Export the Freehand document so it can be read in Illustrator. Also, have the designer spec the colors used on the logo with color names called out.
.
COREL
If you send us CorelDraw .cdr files, please convert all text files to curves and export as an ai file prior to sending to us. This can be done by doing the following: Once you have completed your layout, select all text items and choose "BREAK APART" from the Arrange menu. Select all the text again and choose "CONVERT TO CURVES." To send us .ai files that have been created as .cdr files in CorelDraw, follow the "Break Apart" and "Convert to Curves" procedure as outlined above and then use the "EXPORT" command to save your file in .ai format. Also, have the designer spec the colors used on the logo with color names called out.
.
BITMAPPED
If you are sending us bitmapped images (photographs or digital art files that contain photo-like images) we usually get very good results with tif, psd (Adobe Photoshop), or jpeg files. You can also send us bmp and gif files, but the resolution is usually better on the latter. Please send the biggest image you can find at the highest resolution. If you are scanning images to send to us, scan at 150 to 200 dpi, this will produce excellent results.
.
PHOTOSHOP
We also can use files composed in Adobe Photoshop. 
.
PDF
We also can use files created in Adobe Acrobat as in pdf files (Portable Document Format).
.
OTHER
FAX / DRAWINGS
We also accept simple artwork by fax and can often make it useable through computer recreation/touch-up methods. We can also accommodate those individuals supplying hand drawn artwork, through scanning, photocopying, and traditional paste-up methods. Remember, if you have any questions regarding artwork, please contact us and we'll be happy to help you. 
.
WORD ART
We can except logos created in Word, but we need a Screen Shot (Print Screen) of the logo. This will allow us to see what the logo looked like on your monitor, as Word does not have the ability to outlines the text. 
.
Of course, we can accept artwork files from any of these programs. These files would have to be redrawn in a vector type software to be used on the product. Here are the type of files that we can accept:
CorelDraw (.cdr) Adobe Illustrator (.ai)
Postscript Interpreted (.eps) Encapsulated Postscript (.eps)
Adobe Placed PDF Page (.pdf) Portable Document Format (.pdf) 
JPEG Bitmaps (.jpeg)  Windows Bitmap (.bmp) 
TIFF Bitmap (.tif) Microsoft PhotoDraw 2000 (.mix) 
Adobe Photoshop (.psd) (.pdd) Corel WordPerfect 4/5/6/7/8 (.wpd)
MacPaint Bitmap (.mac)  MS Word files (.doc)
Macintosh PICT (.pct)  Compuserve Bitmap (.gif)
Microsoft Publisher (.pub)  Along with others...

"Art is anything made by man that can withstand the storms of time"
Stuart Yost, Plymouth-Whitemarsh Art Instructor

"A painter paints pictures on canvas. But musicians paint their pictures on silence"
Leopold Stokowski

"More than any time in recent history, America's destiny is not of our own choosing. We did not seek nor did we provoke an assault on our freedom and our way of life. We did not expect nor did we invite a confrontation with evil. Yet the true measure of a people's strength is how they rise to master that moment when it does arrive - The streets of heaven are too crowded with angels, but every time we think we have measured our capacity to meet a challenge, we look up and we're reminded that that capacity may well be limitless. This is a time for American heroes. We will do what is hard. We will achieve what is great. This is a time for American heroes and we reach for the stars"
Aaron Sorkin, West Wing ("20 Hours in America": I & II; aired September 25, 2002)


"Only those who will risk going too far can possibly find out how far one can go"
T.S. Eliot

"Imagination is more important than knowledge"
Albert Einstein

"Faith is taking the first step even when you don't see the staircase"
Martin Luther King, Jr.
