Artwork Guidelines

Artwork Guidelines


As a starting point, we only receive “High Quality Print” PDF, and or Adobe Illustrator Vector Files (.Ai, .EPS, .SVG) files. We recommend exporting files at a “High Quality Printing” setting such as 300DPI. Before exporting your file, convert all text to outlines and embed all images. Include a screenshot or .jpg proof for content verification.

If you are not able to generate a “High Quality Print” PDF, or Vector file, we accept the following software generated file formats.

  • Photoshop .PSD Include all layers, paths, channels, links and fonts.
  • Illustrator .AI Convert text to outlines, include all linked images (do not embed images).
  • InDesign and QuarkXpress files are not recommended for large format printing. We only except “High Quality Printing” PDF’s generated from these software programs.


Artwork templates in PDF format for all graphics sizes can be download on our websites Resource Center


The best results are achieved when the resolution of the images are between 300 DPI at final print size (full size). Images submitted at higher than 125 DPI will create larger file sizes without any visible gain in print quality.


All colors must be defined in CMYK. If converted from RGB to CMYK significant color changes can occur, please proof your colors prior to submission. Pantone Spot Colors or PMS codes are highly recommended. Please provide pantone codes whenever possible in order to guarantee spot on printing of your colors. Reference printouts will be considered for layout only, not as actual color reference. If a color layout can not be sent, include a .jpg, .pdf (screen optimized) or screen shot file. Clearly mark filename as”proof”. For black use (Process Black).


All files sent by WeTransfer should be compressed (.sit, .rar, or .zip). Your files can be uploaded through our Transfer Portal or directly to our Art Department. We recommend using our transfer portal for large files!


Proof prints, if required, are approx. 12″ x 12”. Please allow for additional production time when proofs are required. Final order delivery will be delayed by the time required to ship and confirm proofs.


Print or production Turnaround time is generally 7-10 business days , plus shipping. Please contact your sales representative for an exact schedule of your order.
