Logo File Types and Usage

  • EPS and PDF files are vector images used for printing. They are the best quality and can be enlarged without loss of quality. Used for signs, graphics and professional printing.
  • JPG is a high-resolution bitmap image, and is used in many types of software such as Microsoft Office products. It has the white background inherent in JPGs.
  • TIF and PSD files are high-resolution bitmap images with a transparent background. Please note, some software may not be able to support transparent backgrounds and PNGs may appear with a white background.
  • PNG is a low resolution bitmap image with a transparent background. Do not use this format for anything to be printed, especially from a Microsoft Office product. It may look fine on your computer, but can degrade when printed, emailed or made into a PDF.
  • Email PNG is a small file used for email signatures only.
  • Reverse logo available upon request.

If you need assistance with other formats, please contact our Marketing Coordinator.
