  SOME TIPS
 
Need a photo or artwork for your vehicle wrap or sign project?
We recommend www.istockphoto.com. The high-resolution versions of their royalty-free stock photos are priced reasonably and they have a huge selection.
We also offer custom design services and solutions for all your large-format printing needs.
Below is a list of file formats we currently accept. However, if you have no graphics experience We can work from verbal descriptions, hand sketches, and faxes. We will clean up your sketch or idea and generate a design review PDF for your approval.


  Adobe Illustrator  
  Adobe PhotoShop
 
  Adobe Acrobat  
  Adobe InDesign  
If your project requires contour cutting of vinyl, an original Illustrator file will be needed. By Illustrator, we mean VECTOR files (original files created in Adobe Illustrator) NOT pictures placed into Illustrator.

Pleas make sure to convert all fonts to outlines.





PhotoShop files will work great with images that do not need to be contour cut.

Please remember that original images from the camera need to be at a sufficient resolution and size.

Pleas make sure to convert all fonts to outlines.
how to convert text to outlines


If you do not have Adobe design software such as PhotoShop or Illustrator, we can take your PDF file and make it work.

Most applications allow you to save your work as a PDF file or at least print to a PDF printer.






Although InDesign is mostly used for publications and it is not our preferred file format, for vehicle graphics or custom banners,we will accept this format and make necessary adjustment.

Please make sure your file is not more that a couple of pages long.

Also, make sure that all linked images are included in the package that you give to us.

FOR VEHICLE WRAPS AND OTHER PROJECTS:

Photographic Images:
TIFF, EPS, PSD, PDF format.
(JPEG or web site files are not recommended for large format printing due to low image quality).

Include all images that have been placed or imported into the final layout of the file.

Color:
CMYK is our print process so it is recommended to send in the art as CMYK but will accept in RGB form.
PMS pantone color match is required, please specify pantone colors in the file and on the hard copy proof.


Fonts:
Convert fonts (type) to outlines (Illustrator) or paths (Freehand) or flatten image (Photoshop) or convert to curves (Corel Draw). If the type needs to be edited, include a copy of the font suitcase (Mac) or the True Image font (PC) with the file you submit to us.

Scaling:
Please provide scale of artwork & final output size.

Scanned Images:
Should be scanned at no less than 300 dpi at 1/4 size of the final printed piece.

Determining Scanner Resolution:
1) Multiply the specified finished graphic dimension by the desired print resolution to determine the TOTAL pixels required for correct sizing.
2) Divide the total pixels by the input dimensions to determine the scan PPI setting to use on the scanner.
3) Set the scanner ppi (dpi) resolution. Use the next higher resolution if the scanner cannot be set to the exact resolution needed.
