I resubmitted the image to them this morning. There were artifacts on the old one from the conversion. Instead of using Illustrator I used Acrobat this time. The gradient looks better but there are a few spots around the state that were less then desirable. I'll let you know if I hear anything else about it. We should get a proof today and they can print/ship on Monday.
Did you guys notice the bottom of the state there? I fixed that before I sent it off the second time.
