Frequently Asked Questions
Can you print with my JPEG or PNG file?
No, for custom printing we require high resolution vector files to ensure that you get the highest quality print available. Formats include AI, EPS or High Resolution PDF. If you only have a JPEG file, you can request your graphic designer provide us with a AI, EPS or High Resolution PDF Format or email your JPEG to firstname.lastname@example.org and we will provide you with a quote to convert this artwork into a print ready format.
Can you design artwork for me?
We do not custom design artwork, however, we may be able to assist with converting your logo over to a print ready format. Please email email@example.com with any questions.
What does "outlined fonts" mean?
Artwork will not load correctly in our system if we do not have the fonts that you have used available. A simple way around this is to outline them in Adoble Illustrator. This converts them from being a font to being a vector based image which can be opened on any computer.
Outlining fonts is simple!
- Open your file in Adobe Illustrator
- Select your text
- Go to the "Type" Menu
- Click on "Create Outlines"
- Save your file (It's helps to save it as a new file in case you want to make any text edits later!)
What style of artwork will print the best?
This will depend on the type of printing that you have chosen, but generally solid shapes or lines, clear text and no shading or gradients will work the best. If you are not sure if your artwork will be suitable, please email firstname.lastname@example.org for help.
My artwork is too large to send via email. How can I get it to you?
We recommend using a file transfer service such as Dropbox or Wetransfer, then email us with the link.
Can you print a sample for me prior to me placing an order?
Any samples that we supply will be unprinted, or a generic print so that you can see the quality of the finish.
We do provide an artwork proof prior to production so that you can sign off on the artwork and it's positioning.
