"I have artwork, can you use it?"
Yes. A high resolution raster file or an image in vector form is best.
What does raster mean?
A raster image, or a bitmapped file, is composed of pixels or little squares. The more pixels per inch, the higher the resolution. Enlarging these files can create a "pixelated" look if the end result is less that 100 pixels per inch. Files with a .jpg or .png after the file name are examples of raster files.
What does vector mean?
Vector is a term used to describe art in the form of points and lines on an X and Y axis. Vector files can be enlarged infinitely and still maintain theri integrity. Files with .ai, .eps, or .pdf extensions are most likely (though not always) vector files.
Here is an example of a raster file (jpg, png) vs. a vector file (ai, eps):
