If supplying an Adobe Illustrator document save document as an Illustrator EPS and check the type is outlined (no longer active or editable). To outline your type in Adobe Illustrator go to menu and select Type > Create Outlines, then save as an EPS by selecting EPS in [save as] options.

Adobe Photoshop

If supplying an Adobe Photoshop document flatten file before saving. To flatten your file go to Layer > Flatten Image, then save.
