Patron Artwork Resources

Apex Cougar Club Patrons enjoy prominent placement of your advertising in Apex Cougars Stadium and the Cougar Club website, which is smartphone-friendly and can be used like an 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 camera-ready or “ready-to-use” artwork. This is artwork that is considered “finished” when it is received in the proper sizes and format and requires no further editing by the Apex Cougar Club.  Some examples of “finished” artwork are:

These ads were received from the Patron in “finished” form and were placed on the Apex Cougar Club’s website within minutes of receiving them. Unfortunately, much of the artwork submitted to the Cougar Club is incomplete, in the wrong format, or almost unusable (e.g. a scan of a business card).

If your organization does not have capability to provide “finished” artwork, we may be able to help.  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 website. The Apex 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
    • Preferred:  Adobe Illustrator, Photoshop PSD, PDF, EPS, or SVG
    • Alternate:  High resolution TIFF, JPG or PNG
    • Target URL to redirect to when clicked

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.
