When sending us your artwork, we have a few requirements that will help to ensure that your finished sign is flawless and professional. We are able to accept several formats for your sign artwork, but for absolute best results, we need the original vector source file that was used to create the design. Your source file was likely created in a graphics program like Adobe Illustrator, Adobe Photoshop, Adobe Acrobat PDF or CorelDraw. These programs generate files with specific file extensions.
In some instances, files ending in .pdf or .eps may also contain vector information, so please send these to us as well if they are available.
If you do not have a source file containing vector information, files ending in .jpg, .png, .pdf or .eps may be usable if certain requirements are met. They must have a minimum resolution of 150 dpi, and the file needs to be the same size as the intended output. In other words, if you are planning on creating a 2’ x 3' banner, then the .jpg (or .png, etc.) file needs to have a canvas size of 2’ x 3’ as well.
If you're creating a professionally designed document, your graphic designer might work in Photoshop, Illustrator or InDesign. All three design programs follow the same PDF creator route.
Before going to print your design, we will send you an email with a file. We call it "approval" where you can check each detail of your design as spelling, diagramming or the colors. Please keep in mind that we are humans, and we can make one or two mistakes, that is why we appreciate if you double check with us the approval.
Image Resolution is the detail an image holds, what that means is higher resolution, much better images. For being more specific about it, here is what we seek:
The Bleed is the area to be trimmed off. What it means is that there is no white space or border showing around your artwork. The following specifications will show you how the bleed works in your design:
Trimming Zone: Here you can find where your product will be cut, in other words, it's the real size of your product after we cut it.
Technical Stuff: You must add 1/4” or 0.25” Inches to the complete design.
Safety Zone: All that is within the black lines will appear in your final product. It means that all images, logos or texts are not cut.
Technical Stuff: Keep the text at least 1/2” or 0.50 inches away from the paper edge, it makes that the print process more perfect!
We always look to print your design the same as you see in the approval but, please keep in mind that exist some factors that can break with this idea:
It's different how an image looks on your computer than in paper and ink. The most important: Work in CMYK color space.
Why should you use CMYK when working with information that will be printed?
Limitations of CMYK and why printing RGB designs might not come out the same. The reason why RGB designs printed in CMYK don't look the same is because the CMYK colorspace does not include all the colors in the color spectrum that RGB includes.
CMYK is subtractive, like paint/pigment. you start with nothing (white paper) and as you add more colours it eventually turns black. CMYK represents the standard coloured inks that printers use to create colours: cyan, magenta, yellow and black. RGB is additive, the way light creates colours.
Use the CMYK mode when preparing an image to be printed using process colors. Converting an RGB image into CMYK creates a color separation. If you start with an RGB image, it's best to edit first in RGB and then convert to CMYK at the end of your editing process.
If you need to print a Pantone color, please specified the color code and if it is spot and separate correctly.
When uploading your own artwork, follow these guidelines for a perfect sign, every time!
Note: If you must use a low resolution image, we recommend making it small so that it will be the least pixelated as possible.
Use photo editing software to open the image and find out the resolution. Here are some rules of thumb:
