.EPS Files?

Recommended Posts

I recently designed a letterhead for our new company, and am working with a supplier on printing some envelopes with the company letterhead.

 

They've asked for an .eps file with at least 300 dpi. My original .pdn file I made 4-times the actual print size (which was 3.3 inches x 1 inch) at set the dpi at 600.

 

 

When I size it down to actual, I am keeping the resolution at 600 dpi, flattening, and then saving as a jpeg, then converting to a PDF, which I save as a .eps.

 

Somehow, I am ending up with an .eps file that is not hi-rez enough.

 

 

Is this a correct way to get to an .eps file? And is there a better way?

 

Thanks!

.pdn files save everything.

.png will flatten the image (no layers) and do what it can to save space while staying lossless. For example, a completely black image will save as a much smaller .png file than a photo of a butterfly flitting across a rainbow over the imperial gardens. If I remember correctly, the two files would be the same size if saved as .pdn.

EDIT: Wikipedia says to save as a .tiff if you are messing with .eps

If you are losing visual quality, then I'm not sure what's going on.

You may use the ImPDF FileType plugin to save as PDF and ghostscript to convert from pdf to eps.

PDF and EPS are vector file formats so a specif dpi value is just relevant for raster images embedded in the vector files.
