I can't get art work sent to a company for a bid. Designed on SignLab and when I send it,
they can't open it. Person at the graphic company told me I need to get it down sized.
My question is, can I tell what size my art work is, they can receive up to 10mg.

There is no simple way, other than saving the file in the format you choose and then looking at the properties of the file when saved.

Shrinking the physical size of the artwork in signlab before saving will reduce the size in Mb of the file if you are saving as an image file (BMP, jpg , etc), choosing JPG as the file type will also mean the file is compressed.

If you are saving as PDF, AI etc then a file that is saving at over 10Mb will likely have images in it, reducing the resolution of those images (Image > Image Size), will make the overall file size smaller.
