What type of files can I request within Penji?
Updated over a week ago

A typical file type within Penji is anything from a simple PNG to a PSD or even an INDD. However, Penji can go slightly beyond the traditional norm. Here are all the file types you can request for a completed project to be sent to you. Also, as a precautionary effort, we recommend clicking on the file types you’re looking for within your project creation and the project brief. Double communication is always best to ensure that if a specific file type is needed, it will not be missed:
