Which logo format should I use?

UTHSC logos that are downloaded from the website are available in three formats: EPS, JPG, and PNG. The application being used determines the appropriate file format:

Application EPS JPG PNG
Banners X    
Embroidery X    
Emails   X X (preferred)
Excel Documents   X X
PowerPoint Documents   X X
Promotional Products X    
Signs X    
T-Shirt Silkscreening X    
Video X (preferred) X  
Website   X X (preferred)
Word Documents   X X (preferred)
  • EPS and PNG formats allow a transparent background, where a JPG will have a white background behind the logo.
  • EPS is a vector image, or line art, which means the logo will maintain its integrity when scaled up or down, regardless of size.
  • JPG and PNG are raster images, meaning the logo is composed of tiny dots that will separate and appear fuzzy when scaled up in size.
  • PNG formats are the most appropriate for web/email use.
