FILE TYPES
When sending files to North Metro Signs, please remember that different file types only allow us to do certain things.  For instance graphics made with Microsoft Word will only allow us to visually see what you would like your sign to look like.  Files of this type will have to be re-drawn and could incur artwork fees.  If possible please send us Vector art files such as Adobe Illustrator files.  If this is not an option JPEG, PDF, EPS, and PNG files will allow us to work more efficiently with your artwork.

VECTORIZED FILE TYPES – STRONGLY PREFERRED:
Vector files are compatible with our design software, so there is typically no additional charge for artwork or setup When you send us a vector file. Acceptable files types are:
