File Preparation

For the best results, ALL files should be build in CMYK colorspace, blacks should be C=50 M=50 Y=50 K=100 Rich black. If PMS matching is required, build files usine PMS numbers, not 4 color process values. Always supply a proof for color matching. If you are not submitting flattened art, please make sure all text is converted to outlines/shapes, and anything linked is embedded.


Please keep in mind the size and intended viewing distance of the graphic you are having us produce. Giant billboards, building wraps, ect. may only need to be 20 to 50 dpi at full scale and will look great, whereas mall posters, duratrans, ect., may need a higher resolution (75 - 100 dpi) is justified for closer viewing distances.


For banners, you will want to be sure that any important text or images are at least 1" away from an edge getting a hem, or at least 4" away from an edge getting a pole pocket.
