Artwork Guidelines

Artwork Submission Guidelines

Before you submit your artwork:

Please submit files that are print ready and do not require editing.

A printed image will not look 100% like the original, we can only get as close as possible.

The artwork should have a minimum 150 DPI. We prefer CMYK colors.

We accept the following formats: HIGH RES JPEG, PDF, TIFF, AI, EPS, PSD.

Please keep your artwork files under 1GB in file size if possible.

EPS Files: All text in EPS files should be converted to outlines
PSD and AI files: Layers should be flattened

Please submit artwork in the actual size you want it to be printed.

For example, if the image size of your stand is 33" X 78" then you would need to submit to us a 33" X 78"

Submitted artwork does not require any bleed. We print right to the edge with color. However, please let us know if you would like to have a white border printed.

Please convert all your fonts to outlines. We do not accept font files.

Revisions/ Image Editing
If you choose us to make some basic revisions to your files we charge $80/hr, with a minimum of one hour. We can change proportion, text, color, size, etc.

PDF proofs can be requested but are not required, we print with print ready files, so PDF proofs would be a PDF version of your full size artwork just to make sure we have the right artwork.

Physical proofs are not required, however we can provide a printed proof at an additional cost depending on square footage and shipping. This will delay your order several days.

PDF proofs are free but must be requested through special instructions in checkout or through the YouSendIt message field.

PDF and physical proofs will delay your order several business days from our normal turnaround times based on when proofs are approved.

Please check your Pantone colors before you submit artwork. Artwork should be submitted with CMYK colors to provide the most accurate color wanted. Unless a printed proof is ordered, Signworld is not responsible for unsatisfactory color results. If the artwork is color sensitive please contact us on pricing about our color matching services.
