To ensure accurate reproduction of your artwork, please follow the below guidelines when submitting electronic files to Banners Ink
Graphics must be in Vector Format
If the image is made of little boxes (called Pixels) when you zoom in, then it is a Raster Image.
Vector Images are still the best format for digital prints as they can be enlarged or reduced without any loss of quality.
If forwarding bitmap images, these should be at least 72 dpi at the full output size of the print, eg. if the file to be printed is 1800 x 1200 it has to be at least 72 dpi at that size.
A higher resolution such as 150 dpi or even 300 dpi will produce a better quality image.
What if the Graphics are not Vectorised?
We can redraw Raster images as Vector images within 24 hours. An electronic example of the image must be supplied (eg Jpg, Tif, PDF) and all PMS Colours and Fonts specified.
We require PC format graphics – not MAC
All text must be converted to outlines
We have an upload facility for files that are too large to be emailed. Please contact us if you would like a log in to activate this facility.
