ARTWORK REQUIREMENTS

To achieve the highest quality printing and expedite the ordering process, please follow the below artwork guideline.

ARTWORK SETUP

    • All artwork should be set up in CMYK colour mode. RGB will be converted to CMYK before printing. This conversion will likely cause a colour shift to the finished product. To avoid discrepancies, set up your file in CMYK colour mode rather than RGB.
    • Providing solid coated Pantone® numbers that end with “C” allows us to precisely match your brand colours accurately and maintain colour consistency when printing. Indicate specific Pantone® colours that you require us to match.
    • Preferred art format: AI, EPS or PDF. These types of files allow us to scale your artwork to the necessary size that’s required for large format printing without encountering distortion or pixelation.
    • Photographic image files must be provided in the highest resolution possible.
    • All rasterized images should be at least 72dpi at print size. Rasterized photo images should be CMYK, not RGB. Please include the native files for all linked images.

    • All fonts and strokes must be converted to outlines.
    • We cannot digitally print metallic colours.
    • Raster images and effects will be printed in CMYK.
    • Additional fees will apply for artwork redraw. We will provide you with vector format art to use for future projects.
