           For quicker production, please follow these File Preparation Tips.
  • Format: Best is PSD actual size at 120 dpi. JPG actual size at 120dpi will work too.
  • Proportion: For example 4' x 8' art must be sized at 48" x 96"  
  • Full Bleed: Not required for banners and signage.
  • Vector Files: NO FONTS! ALWAYS convert text to outlines or curves.
  • Please, NO small GIF or little web JPGs, they will NOT work. EVER. AT ALL. EVER.



Photos taken with a digital camera with an 8 megapixel or higher capacity are preferred. For Example: An 8 megapixel camera can generate a photo that can be printed up to 24" x 32" at 100 dpi. 


  • Files can be saved as either an EPS or TIFF file. Sending a copy of the layered Photoshop file of complex images is also an excellent idea.
  • To achieve the highest print quality, set any copy that overlays a Photoshop Image in Illustrator and convert the copy to paths.
