PREPARING A FILE
Designing text and images for large-format printing is simple if you follow a few basic rules and guidelines:
All images should be 120 - 180 dpi or greater at finished print size for best results
Prepare artwork at full scale or no less than 25% of full scale
All images should be in their native CMYK format. If in RGB, convert to CMYK
Include all links and fonts or convert all graphics and text to outlines (vector format) when sending a file
Provide bleed as per the templates for each hardware configuration, for custom projects without templates please provide a 1" bleed on all sides of art.
File types we prefer include vector PDF, EPS, AI, and PSD. Our design department supports the following software programs: Adobe Illustrator CC, Adobe Photoshop CC, For any other applications, please call us.
If color matching is important, please specify Pantone colors in your custom sign or display layout. Be sure to make note of them in the special instructions that accompany your graphic files. Or, you can send us a hardcopy of the images and colors you want us to match (brochure, etc.). We will do our best to “hit” those colors on your custom system.
To begin the sign production process, upload your files. We will confirm receipt of your files and provide an estimate for when we will begin production on your signs, banners, or tradeshow display. If you have an “in your hands, drop dead date,” be sure that we understand your requirements. Take note that we will factor in shipping time to ensure your date is met.
