    High resolution files for home/office and professional print

all my works include source files!!!

  • The most common file types needed are AI (Illustrator) and EPS for most professional print jobs. These     are vector format files. These files should be in a CMYK color format. Vector art allows you to reduce or enlarge a design to ANY size without losing detail or clarity. Also, I will provide you with print quality PDF file.
  • For home use and some print jobs you will need TIFF and PSD files. These are pixel files and should have a DPI (dots per inch) of at least 300 dpi. 600-1200 dpi is best for professional printing. These type of files lose their detail when enlarged but can be reduced.
  • The last file types you will need would be JPEG and GIF. These are pixel files and are used for web design. They should be in a RGB color format. You will receive crisp 72 dpi files for the Internet. A GIF file will be transparent if you do not want a white box around it when displayed on your page.

WordPress web sites start from: $650

  • SEO – WordPress provides good search engine optimization (SEO) right out of the box. There are a few tweaks you need to make, but there are many seo benefits that WordPress provides for free.
  • Content – it is easy to update content on your website without knowing HTML. Do you hate the idea of having to learn to use a complex HTML editor tool like Dreamweaver? Do you have to "ask" your webmaster every time you want to make a small change to your website? Well no longer – once WordPress is set up for you, you can easily create new pages or edit existing pages using a simple rich text editor.
  • Extensions – There is a thriving ecosystem of developers creating themes and plug-ins – imagine free design themes, or the ability to extend your website with polls, contact forms, ratings or hundreds of other cool features without having to hire a web developer.
  • Support – If you do have problems, or want to add very custom features, it is easy to find support and developers who can help you. There are literally thousands of WordPress developers out there. And there are so many people writing about WordPress that help is only a Google search away!
  • One-click-installation – Quick installs are provided by many hosting providers, including Bluehost and 1and1.
