DO: Use an accepted vector graphics program

Posted by Amanda Dimova on

EVEN if your file passes the checker, it MIGHT NOT be read correctly by our machine.

Due to the ways different programs process PDF files, the only programs that work with our machines are the following:

-CorelDRAW

-Adobe Illustrator

-InkScape (FREE at Inkscape.org)

If you create a PDF with either of these programs and make sure to retain RGB formatting, the file will likely be read correctly by our equipment. There is always possibility of some error as different operating systems work differently.

PDFs created with programs such as AutoCAD or other proprietary software do not always translate well into our laser cutting software and can result in skipped objects or disproportional cuts.

We understand sometimes it is easier to use a program you know, so to avoid mishaps with these programs, open your file in Inkscape, Corel, or illustrator and re-save as a PDF.
