How do I request proofs before production?

We provide digital proofs upon written requests for submissions with an active order number. Orders placed before 1PM can expect email response within the same day. Orders placed after 1PM will be processed the following business day. Any and all files submitted without a digital proof request will be deemed print-ready, based solely on our judgment, at our discretion. If you have any questions regarding artwork, please do not hesitate to call us at (818) 666 5015 before placing your order.


What formats can I submit my artwork in?

SignsIdea accepts the following file formats for artwork submission:

TIFF, PDF, PSD, EPS, JPG - AI files OK!

Please note that all PSD and EPS files should be rasterized and flattened so that there are no multiple layers.

If your files are very large, it is recommended that you compress your file into a .zip file before uploading.


How should I design my Artwork?

Resolution:

To ensure the best possible print for you, we recommend a resolution of at least 150 DPI for your image at full scale. Images with higher resolution will yield better results. Images designed in half-scale should have a resolution of 300 DPI.

Size:

Please make sure all submitted image files are in the actual size and dimension of the print you need.

For example, if you want to print graphics for a 33” x 78" retractable banner stand, your image size should be 33” in width and 78” in height.

We understand that canvas art wraps are often ordered by non industry professionals and used for personal decor. If you need assistance with your artwork please let us know and we'll be glad to help you!

Bleed:

You do not need to submit a bleed with your images. We manually print and cut each print graphics to the exact dimensions needed for your product.

*Please do not include cropmarks on artwork files for printing, unless they are already included in the template. We are not responsible for cropmarks or any miscellaneous markings that may appear on the final product. 

Colors:

We prefer CMYK color profiles to yield best results. Please understand that printed images will not match up 100% with the colors you see on your monitor. We do our best to provide you with the most vibrant and true colors for your graphics.

Please check your Pantone colors before you submit artwork. Artwork should be submitted in CMYK colors to provide the most accurate color wanted. If the artwork is color sensitive, please contact us on pricing about our color matching services.

Unless a printed proof is ordered, SignsIdea is not responsible for unsatisfactory color results. You may order a physical proof at an additional cost depending on square footage and shipping. This can delay your order up to 5 business days, depending on current production schedule.
