*Customer must supply as many images, verbiage and vector-based graphics (logo, image, & text) as possible.

 

Photoshop Users

Whether you use one of our supplied templates or you create your own document, please make sure the dimension of your file is the exact size of the finished size.

Image Resolution

 

Photos and graphics need to be 125 DPI at full size min.

Determine Image Quality from Source

 

    Low Quality: 72 DPI

    Screen capture of video frame

    Low resolution / low quality stock photography

    Image lifted off a web-page

 

    Good Quality: 300 to 125 DPI

    High resolution / high quality stock photography

    High resolution / high quality scanner

 

Why 125 DPI?

Since your display will be a large format print, you don't need to prepare your file in 300 DPI which is usually used for smaller format print.

 

Color Mode

Your file has to be in CMYK mode. You can go to Image > Mode > CMYK to view the setting.

Rich Black / Regular (True) Black

If you have ever had problems getting a nice deep black printed, you are not the only one. When designing your art, if you have your standard black color set to C 0%, M 0%, Y 0%, K 100% your black may come off a little different than expected. It will loose its richness and not be dark black.

To get a rich black use the following:

 

C 75%, M 75%Y 75%,K 100%

If you are uncertain of the quality of your images, please call us at 302-344-1231
