Why you receive multiple files for your completed artwork

Your logo, brochure or packaging is complete. It looks beautiful. You’re satisfied. Now that your order is delivered, you may be wondering, “What on earth are all these files I’ve received?”

Yes, it’s true. Your final delivered artwork will come in many different file types. So it’s no wonder people get confused. The goal of this article is to help you make sense of it all. Below you’ll find a list of different file types you should receive for three common design projects: logos, brochures and packaging. But before we get to that, why exactly do you need all these files in the first place?

The purpose of your files

Though you receive several files at the completion of your project, each file has one of two purposes: the file is either your final product, or an editable file you can use to adjust your final product later. For example, your logo’s png file is the final product, which can be uploaded to your website, Facebook page or other social media network. Your logo’s AI file, however, can be edited. So if you ever need to make adjustments to your logo in the future, you can do this via this file.

Without further ado, below is the list of all files you receive upon completion of your project.
