FAQ - Why JPGs Only?

FAQ - Why JPGs Only?

5. Q. Why do you accept only jpg's for upload?

A. Because jpg's are the only file format the lends itself to online proofing. I feel a client must see an online proof of their banner when ordering. Your online proof is basically a large thumbnail of the exact file we are going to print.

6. Q. Why do you recommend 100 dpi as the resolution for my banner print file:
A. 100 dpi is more than sufficient, it is the industry standard for vinyl banners. Remember, these are banners, not business cards. The view distances are alway beyond arms length and you can not possibly see the difference at that distance. Besides that, even if we were to print at 300dpi you wouldn't be able to see the benefit because the scrim banner material doesn't support high resolution printing. Finally, if you upload a file greater than 100 dpi it is just a waste of bandwidth as all files are sampled to 100dpi inside our templates before going to the printer. I am an Adobe Certified Expert, and I have printed tens of thousands of banners, I have tested all file formats and this is the straight scoop.
