Should you use .eps or .tif files?

It is difficult to predict which graphic format will work best for you because there are so many variables in software, computers, and printers. That's why .eps, .tif and .wmf formats are available.

Reserve some time to experiment with the wordmarks. You will need to determine which format works best for you and your equipment. Give yourself time to troubleshoot when you download and use these files initially.

The .eps files offer a sharper image than .tif files, so you may want to experiment with the .eps files first. The .eps files also usually print better than they display, so as you experiment with the wordmark don't just go by your monitor. Check your results with your printer.

If you have trouble downloading the files contact extension's computer hotline at 515-294-1725. If you have trouble printing the wordmarks contact smetcalf@iastate.edu.
