Art board issue when opening EPS file in Adobe Illustrator

Recommended Posts

Hi everyone! Hope you're having a fantastic Friday so far. 

So I'm seeing a strange issue after exporting EPS files from AD on my iPad. After moving the EPS file to my Mac I upload them to Shutterstock where they get flagged for an art board issue. Specifically I get "Vector is overlapping artboard bounds or is too small on the artboard, or there is more than one artboard in the file.". After reading this I opened them in Adobe Illustrator (free trial, I'm not paying for it.) and Indeed the art board is the wrong size. Now I had seen a post for AD on the desktop where people are having the same issue and according to the post I can fix this by choosing the 'Micro Stock' preset in the export settings, which I don't think exists on my iPad. 

So any suggestions? Am I just exporting them wrong maybe?

I've attached a few screen shots of what I'm seeing
