User work submission guidelines


We always love to see the work that our users produce. Throughout the years we have used a great deal of the work that has been sent to us.

 

This work may be used in our web site, Facebook page, ads, newsletters, calendar and other promotional materials. Considering the amount of work we receive we can not, however, give any guarantee that your work will be used. Please follow these guidelines to better help you prepare your work to send.

 

When we print artwork we usually need it to be at least 300 dpi. When you send your work, you may send it directly in hi-resolution or you may send low-resolution thumbnails, from which we may select what we wish to publish. When you send low-resolution work, please make sure that you also have a hi-resolution version that you can send us when your work is selected. If you do not have hi-resolution counterparts, please include a note telling us so. Low-resolution images may still be appropriate for inclusion on our web site.

 

 

Tiff format is preferred for hi-res images. Please don't send .jpeg files.

 

When sending wireframe images please save them in a vector format (.ai, .eps or .pict).

 

When uploading your images, first collect everything into one .zip file... then submit this .zip file

 

To include a link to your web site from ours we request that you credit form·Z, bonzai3d, or RenderZone (when applicable) for those projects you did with it. Optionally, you can also put a banner to link to our site.

 

 

 

Quick checklist

Resolution - Approximately 300 dpi at 8"x10" (2400x3000 pixels)

Bitmaps - Tiff format

Wireframes - .ai, .eps or .pict format

Collect images into one .zip file.

 

*Note that 300 dpi is desired at printed size. Most of the images that we publish in the newsletter are no larger than 4"x5". Cover images and Calendar images are 8.5"x11".

 

Therefore, if you have 72 dpi artwork at 20"x15" it is more than sufficient. There is no need to ever send us 300 dpi images that are larger than 8.5"x11" or 2550x3300 pixels.
