Add extra bleed on banners. All other art should be to size. No extra bleed or crop marks needed.

Artwork Guidelines for Print

When linking or embedding files please adhere to the 150dpi minimum for poster sizes and 75dpi for large format prints (up to 8′). Files over 8′, such as truck side graphics, should be provided around 150dpi or the best resolution you have available. Please submit only CMYK files. JPG compression less than 65% quality may show visible artifacts. Bitmaps need not be greater than 300dpi.

Should changes be necessary, you will be requested to submit modified artwork. If we are required to modify your artwork our design fee is $60/hour and font information may be requested.

If you have specific color concerns please ask to proof your color prior to production.

  • PDF - Adobe Acrobat

  • AI - Adobe Illustrator CS5 or earlier (Fonts converted to outlines)

  • EPS - with all fonts converted to curves, no embedded or linked bitmaps

  • PSD* - Photoshop CS2 or earlier (fonts rasterized, keep layers)

  • TIF*

  • JPG* - Very little or no compression

* Editing, if possible, is more difficult with these formats. PSD, TIF & JPG need be 150dpi or greater, 75dpi or greater for large format.

Artwork Guidelines for Cutting to Shape or Die Cut

Artwork for cutting to shape or die cut need to be provided in vector format only (all fonts converted to outlines, curves, and paths). Colors should be represented correctly in either RGB or CMYK, but precise colors need to be determined using vinyl or paint color charts.

Pantone (PMS) numbers are helpful, but are not always accurately reproduced with vinyl and paint, so a closest match needs to be determined. For this reason we encourage proofing important colors, such as primary brand colors, prior to production. We’re happy to assist you with color choices – please don’t hesitate to ask.

  • PDF - Adobe Acrobat

  • AI - Adobe Illustrator CS5 or earlier (Fonts converted to outlines, no bitmaps)

  • EPS - with all fonts converted to curves, no embedded or linked bitmaps

Vector artwork is required for all cut-to-shape or die cut products, with all fonts converted appropriately.
