File Requirements for Upload
If you are uploading your own print ready files please observe these guidelines for best results:
1. Submit a .jpg at 100 dpi. and at the exact size of the banner you are ordering, Use no bleeds. For a 2X4 banner this would mean setting your file size to 24"X48" and a resolution of 100 dpi. 100 dpi is the industry standard for banners. Use a quality setting of no more than 10 for your .jpg compression. Using 12 gains you nothing except file size. Submitting a .jpg at 100 dpi allows us to give you an online proof and speeds processing of your order. Caution: Whatever the file size/dimensions you submit to us we resize that file to the size of the banner you are ordering.
3. Your banner will most likely not look the same as it does on your computer screen, monitors are backlit, giving a false impression of high contrast that will not transfer to your printed banner. Caution, use only high contrast combinations to increase your sign's visibility. Good examples include: Black letters on white background, black or dark red letters on a bright yellow background, white on black, white on dark green, dark red on white. The combinations are endless, just remember, ask yourself will this color combination present with high contrast in the real world, not how does it look on my monitor. Customers frequently make the mistake of using poor contrast combinations such as purple letters a on black background, or the worst of all, yellow letters on a white background. If you have difficulty determining what is high contrast just look at some signs on the highway.
Follow these 3 points when creating your print file and we guarantee you'll love your banner.
