Patron Artwork Resources

Apex Cougar Club Patrons enjoy prominent placement of your advertising in Apex Cougars Stadium, the Cougar Club web site, and the Cougar Club mobile app.  In order to ensure proper representation of your business, please submit the following material based on your sponsorship level.  All artwork should be submitted to artwork@apexcougarclub.org.

The Cougar Club prefers to receive “ready to use” or “finished” artwork.  What is “finished” artwork?  Artwork is considered “finished” when it is received in the proper sizes and format and requires no further editing by the Cougar Club.  Some examples of “finished” artwork are

If your organization does not have capability to provide “finished” artwork, the Cougar Club may be able to assist.  There is a $100 optional artwork fee for Patrons who are unable to provide “finished” artwork.  This fee allows the Cougar Club to have one of several freelance designers turn whatever is provided into the “finished” artwork we need for the Web Site and Mobile App.  The Cougar Club does not make any money creating this artwork, the $100 fee merely covers the cost to have a designer complete the work.

The Cougar Club can accept most file formats.  Please ensure that your artwork is the proper size and resolution.

  • Stadium Banners
    • Full size (8’x3′) 100 DPI minimum resolution, 150 DPI preferred
    • Preferred format:  PDF, EPS, Adobe Illustrator, TIFF, Photoshop PSD, or SVG
    • Alternate:  High resolution JPG or PNG
  • Web Site and Mobile App ad
    • 72 DPI minimum resolution, 150-200 DPI preferred

Note:  Non-vector based art (also know at bitmaps – PNG, JPG, GIF are all bitmap based) does not scale up very well so your small image cannot be used for printing a stadium banner.  Stadium banners either need to be vector based or provided in their finished size.

All artwork should be submitted to artwork@apexcougarclub.org.
