What if I can’t submit a multi-page PDF?

If you can’t submit a multi-page PDF, we can also accept TIFF files, and JPEG files. PDF is our preferred format.

How do I submit my files?

We will accept and review your files as you place an order or save a quote. After you save a quote, a file upload link will be included on your quote PDF. If you’re having trouble locating the link or want to know what to expect during the file submission process, visit our art upload walkthrough.
