Artwork & Design Submission Information

Our art staff can create artwork for your fraternity or sorority based on your ideas or sketches. You can also submit your own designs for us to produce. See the list here of some of our more popular fonts. Please refer to these when placing your order unless you will be submitting your own font (read below).

If you provide hand drawn art please make it black and white outlines only. If needed provide an additional color copy. We can accept artwork created by a variety of artwork programs and in several image file formats. To save you time and effort it is very important that you read below and speak with our art department before creating any artwork via computer for submission.

All designs will become the property of Greek 101 and will not be mailed back with your order. Greek 101 reserves the right to display artwork of orders in our portfolio for the purposes of advertising.

You may submit logos of businesses or other organizations to us for use in your order. Most of these organizations have a Marketing Department that can provide us with their logo in the formats described below. A $40 fee PER LOGO will be assesed for any logo that needs to be re-created because the art submitted to us does not meet the criteria listed below.

Common Mistakes and Misperception About Website Artwork

JPG'S and GIF'S are the 2 main types of web page image formats. Generally speaking, it is not possible for anyone to reproduce these web based images exactly when they are small logos on a webpage. On a computer monitor these images appear crisp and clean, however, when they are enlarged for printing the end result is an inferior bumpy, dotted and pixelated image. Our art staff can use these images as reference for re-drawing. Art charges may apply for time spent re-drawing these images based on the complexity of the final artwork.

Guidelines and Information for Submission of Electronic Artwork Files

Accepted File Types:
Macintosh Preferred. Some Windows based PC file formats will work. Call for exact specifics if not covered here.

Adobe Illustrator(MAC/WindowsPC).
All text must be converted to outlines to prevent the need for us to have your exact font. Images of photos or drawings placed into and AI file may not be useable.

CorelDraw files may be used. All Type or Text must first be converted to outlines. The file must be saved as ADOBE ILLUSTRATOR FILE type, which is an option when you hit save, in a pulldown menu in the dialog window box.

Adobe Photoshop(MAC/WinPC).
Black and white outlines. Image size should be 4"x4" for small designs and 10"x10" for large designs. Resolution should be 300 dpi. Image type should be BMP(Bitmap).

Quark Express 5 (or lower).
In some cases artwork may be supplied using these programs. A disk will need to be mailed included with fonts and any placed images. You must call to verify prior to submitting these file types.

Microsoft Publisher or Word.
We can NOT use Microsoft Publisher or Paint files. We can open and view Microsoft Word documents however aside from simple Text, 98% of the time we can NOT use the actual artwork from Word. In these cases we will most likely need to start from scratch and recreate the entire design. Accordingly, artwork charges may apply.
