How do I use the submission templates?

Follow

We provide templates for your use in our submission kits. Go to www.minted.com/contest, click "submit a design" for the contest you would like to enter, then click "download a submission kit." Create your design in Illustrator or InDesign using our corresponding templates, then save create your submission image as a jpeg.

Work Created in Illustrator 

  • From the File Menu, select ‘Save for Web & Devices…’ 
  • We recommend selecting the Preset ‘JPEG High.’ Quality 60 is usually fine, but it can be optimized as you see fit to get the best file size/quality ratio.
  •  Submissions in the challenge must be under 200kb, with the larger side of the file set to 550px.
  • Just below the presets menu, click on the ‘Image Size’ tab. Make sure the ‘Constrain Proportions’ box is checked. 
  • Set the largest side of your artwork to 550 pixels and click on the ‘Apply’ button, then save. 

Work Created in InDesign 

  • From the File Menu in InDesign, select ‘Export.’ Below the ‘File name:’ box you will see the ‘Save as type:’ drop down menu where you will select JPEG. 
  • Once you click on the ‘Save’ button an export JPEG menu will pop up. Select a resolution of ‘72’ from the drop down menu. 
  • Once you’ve saved your image from InDesign, open the file in Photoshop to Save for Web. From the File Menu in Photoshop, select ‘Save for Web & Devices…’ 
  • We recommend selecting the Preset ‘JPEG High.’ Quality 60 is usually fine, but it can be optimized as you see fit to get the best file size/quality ratio. 
  • Set the larger side of your design to 550 pixels, then save.
