High quality camera ready art:
what it is, and why you gotta have it!
Someone wants you to "place an ad." Ah, if only you had one on hand! For all of you who don't think about artwork until the deadline has come and gone, here are three things you should know about graphics for advertising.
Camera ready art is just what the name implies: a clear, crisp, uniform image that represents your business identity. It should be infinitely scalable, up and down, so that it looks great whether its printed in the telephone directory or on a highway billboard. Camera ready art comes in many formats, depending on who is using it and in what medium. Camera ready art is what is requested of you by your printer, newspaper, magazine, sign maker and advertising specialties vendors.
When creating and updating your camera ready art, keep this in mind:
- LOGO. Your logo is the single most important element in your advertising or marketing materials. If you don't have a great logo, get one. Your logo should represent what you actually do, be visually arresting, and look great as small as one inch high or as wide as a billboard.
- GIGO. "Garbage in, garbage out." Regardless of the quality of the publication, poor artwork doesn't heal itself. Faded photocopies, faxes of faxes, or that business card that's been folded up in your wallet is not ready to be printed.
- KISS. Keep it simple, and the same. Develop a distinctive look (including type style) for your business promotions, and stick with itfor a good long time. Don't expect your potential customer to spend even a moment figuring out who you are and what you do.
