File Preparation Guidelines

In order to provide the best print quality we recommend you follow the design file guidelines on this page. If you are unsure of any of the instructions offered here, please call us for clarification.

Preferred file formats

• For cut vinyl signs, banners, and lettering: Adobe Illustrator (AI) CS4 or earlier.

• For all other jobs:
Adobe Portable Document Format (PDF). Set output to highest quality.
Adobe Photoshop CS4 or earlier (PSD) flatten layers.

General Guideline for all files:

• Set image size (canvas size) to real sign size in inches.
Example - if you creating 3'x8' vinyl banner, set your canvas size to 36" inches by 96" inches.

• Set file resolution to 150 dpi (or greater). 300 dpi is preferred.

• Set Color Mode to CMYK (or RGB if CMYK is unavailable).

• Do not include crop marks or bleeds.

• All files must be PC compatible.


Guidelines for Specific Programs

Illustrator (CS4 or earlier):
Convert all text to outlines. Expand all Fills and Stokes. Save as PDF file.

Photoshop (CS4 or earlier):
Flatten the image. Make sure your file contains only 1 final background layer. Save as PSD file.

Corel Products:
Native Corel files can not be processed or printed. You must save your Corel file as PDF or EPS or high resolution (150dpi or greater) TIFF or JPEG.

Microsoft Word:
Try to avoid sending Word files. They usually cannot be printed. If Word file is all what you have, add a border proportional to your sign size and make your design inside that border only. When uploading your Word file, include all Fonts used in the files in upload.

Publisher:
Native Publisher files can not be processed or printed. You must save your Publisher file as PDF or high resolution (150dpi or greater) TIFF or JPEG.

Powerpoint:
Native Powerpoint files can not be processed or printed. You must save your Powerpoint file as PDF or high resolution (150dpi or greater) TIFF or JPEG.

PDF files:
Save for High Resolution output. Do not include printer's marks (crop, bleed etc.)

EPS files:
Convert all text to outlines. Expand all fills and strokes. Save with TIFF preview for PC.
