Artwork Specifications

All files must be under 100MB to upload onto our site.

File Tips

  • No bleeds are necessary (unless ordering a banner stand that requires one)
  • Set up size proportionate to the exact size you are ordering
  • Keep all text and important images at least 2 inches away from the edge to prevent hems or grommets from going through them
  • Convert all text to outlines

Acceptable Files for Printing

  • EPS (Encapsulated Post Script)
  • AI (Adobe Illustrator)
  • PDF (Adobe PDF)
  • JPG (High Resolution JPEG)
  • TIFF (High Resolution TIFF)

Vector Files

Vector files are line art, scalable to any size without losing resolution - the image will stay clean and crisp

  • EPS (CS5 or lower)
  • AI (CS5 or lower)
  • PDF

If submitting these files be sure you have converted all fonts to outlines or curves. Vector files can be submitted at any size proportionate to the banner size ordered.

Raster Files / Images

Raster files & images are pixel based images, and depending on the resolution the image becomes blurry as enlarged.

  • PSD
  • JPG
  • TIFF

If submitting these files, please follow the guidelines below:

  • 100% scale (full size output) at 100 dpi
  • 50% scale at 200 dpi or higher
  • 25% scale at 300 dpi or higher
  • 10% scale at 600-1200 dpi recommended

Thumbnail sized jpg and gif. files are not at a high enough resolution to be used on large prints like banners.

Printing Process

All products are printed in CMYK. If files are submitted in RGB, color shifting will take place. If a specific PMS color is needed, please let us know when you submit the order. We will do our best to meet that specified color.
