Graphics Submission Guidelines
We have the capability to produce a wide range of graphics from product and services signs, banner frames, large format stretched fabric back walls to graphics large enough to wrap around an entire building,
We are always willing to accommodate you! However, for quick service and to avoid delay, the following guidelines have been provided for art submission.
To ensure your orders are processed in the fastest time possible with the least amount of problems, please use the following guidelines when preparing data files for output.
APPLICATIONS: Photoshop, Illustrator (Preferred) , QuarkXPress, Freehand, and PowerPoint in either MAC or Windows formats.
Files should be sized at 100% output size or proportionately
scalable at 1/2 or 1/4 size. A supplied hard copy proof of each file
is always recommended.
All "placed or linked files", i.e.., tiff, psd, eps or jpeg files must be provided at 100 dpi at their full output size. For example: a 12" x 18" tiff file placed in a 20" x 24" poster graphic must be provided at 100 dpi at it's full output size of 12" x 18".
