When providing logos to a packaging vendor, what's typically the best method to send the graphics?

An Adobe Illustrator file or PDF?

We usually recommend sending both as well. Just make sure the fonts are converted to curves/outlines before you send your artwork. It's the most common issue with the artwork, if the receiver does not have the font, it will look different..

Make sure your artwork is high resolution so it doesn't end up looking pixilated when it's printed onto the product. Vector files are best to send, as the artist can lift out colors one layer at a time. As the others have also noted, make sure your fonts are converted before sending. You can also send the fonts used in a separate file.

Illustrator and PDF are great! Just make sure to outline all of your Fonts. At StickerYou we can do any shape or size and we do not charge for dies! Minimum order for Labels supplied on rolls is 250.

Sean outlined it perfectly.  Sending vector art will allow us to make all necessary adjustments to fit whatever templates are being used.

Sean is absolutely correct. What is most important is that the file is vectorized and that the fonts are outlined

All of the above -- and then some.
1) An original illustrator file (all fonts outlined, of course) -- actual size.
2) a vector enabled PDF file.
3) a jpeg 'proof' (labeled as such) as a check to make sure the other files are rendering correctly. 

The vendor should still kick back a proof of their own for you to approve.
The files should all look exactly the same if you've dotted your 'i's and crossed your 't's.
