Data and Art Submission

Our easy-to-follow Data and Artwork Submission Guidelines help ensure
speedy and accurate order fulfillment.

Data and Art Submission GuideLines

For best possible results in reproducing your artwork, please follow the guidelines below when selecting what format of file you will provide. 

Artwork Submission Guidelines

Preferred Logo and Artwork formats:

  • Adobe Illustrator (.eps or .ai – vector artwork with fonts converted to outlines)

Other acceptable Logo and Artwork formats:

  • Freehand (saved as .eps – vector artwork with fonts converted to outlines)
  • Adobe Photoshop (.psd or .tif) – minimum resolution: 300 dpi – fonts used must be included with your submission, or rasterized
  • Other common file extensions: .jpg, .png, .gif – minimum resolution: 300 dpi Files with a resolution of 300dpi (dots/pixels per inch) will render the best quality. Images with low resolution or images saved from websites will reproduce with poor quality (less than 300 dpi.) If submitted artwork is less than 300 dpi resolution, an art rebuild fee of $65/hr. may apply.

Incompatible Logo and Artwork formats:

Word (.docx), Powerpoint (.pptx), Excel (.xlsx), or low quality image files from websites. Do not rename original bitmap/raster files as .eps or .ai, as these will not render desirable results when reproduced.

Tech Notes: Vector versus Raster based images

Artwork is preferred as vector-based graphics (line drawings – .ai, .eps) as opposed to raster-based (bitmap/jpeg) images. While a bitmap image appears smooth from a distance, when viewed up close you can see the tiny individual squares and dots (pixels) that make up the image. Vector drawings are made up of graphical objects, consisting of smooth lines and continuous colors, and are resolution independent. When viewed up close or from a distance, vector drawings appear as smooth clean lines and edges. Vector images are easily scalable, and reproduce with the highest level of quality.

Reproduction Rights:

Customer warrants and represents that he/she is lawfully entitled to reproduce and copy the images or artwork ordered and has full authority to authorize us to reproduce and copy such images and artwork.

Data Submission:

Data submission requirements can vary significantly based upon the type and quantity of products ordered, as well as data complexity. Please call for guidance.


The label looks amazing.  Thank you for taking the time to meet our requirements and provide the sample labels quickly.  My manager was impressed with how quickly you provided a sample via email.  We look forward to working with you to meet our asset tag needs.

When looking for a new vendor for labels, I reached to to Express and they were very knowledgeable and helpful. After waiting for days from a large company, these guys had fast turnarounds for quotes, and the pricing was better than the mighty conglomerate that had me waiting.
Evan was very helpful and always available when I had a question. Great service you guys!

I have to say you are all so easy to deal with at Express, it really is a pleasure doing business with you!!!

Sandy L.

I just wanted to let you know that the labels arrived in a timely manner and they looked great! I just wanted to express my thanks to you for the outstanding job that you did in making things happen in such a short window.

Robert H.

Requested a quote for product information and pricing and received a response the same day. Not too often that same day responses are provided from vendors, especially for the type of request that was put through. Good stuff and will keep in the file for a Go-To company.

We have been buying stainless steel barcode plates from Express for over 10 years. Excellent quality and delivery!

Mike D. – Teklogix

Thank you so much for processing our ID plates so quickly and getting them shipped earlier than projected!  I am sincerely grateful for your efforts with this and providing us the items in a timely manner.  Looking forward to doing business again in the near future.

Mary R.

I just want to say how nice they [the tags] look, how well they were packaged, how appreciative I am that you got them to us in time and communicated with me during this order.  Thank you so much!

Linda G.

We will let you know if we ever need anything else.  Ya’ll have been great!

Jennifer D.

I am impressed! Thanks for the fast service.

Jason D.

We got the labels and everyone here really likes the quality and appearance of them.  I’m working on another order for you of the UID labels and will have that data out next week.  Thanks!

Greg H.

We are extremely pleased with our order.  You blew us away with your quick, reliable service and will be our only source for UIDs in the future.

David W.

We have used Express a number of times and the quality and service CANNOT be beat! Everyone works hard to ensure your order is correct and on time (if not early)! I cannot say enough good things about them!
