Please PACKAGE the file and include all fonts and linked images. Please don't use any third-party plug-ins—if they are used we'll be unable to process your art.

Fonts and Line Rules

Please convert fonts to outlines (paths or curves). If we do not have the exact font you used, the text in your art will default to a less attractive font, changing the look of your design. Converting your fonts to outlines eliminates this hazard.
