Best practice artwork guidelines are listed below to ensure that the proofing process of your artwork is efficient and that your artwork prints with the best quality possible.

Graphics designed using the templates provided on our website

Templates for each of our displays can be located on their respective product pages. These templates can be accessed through a dropdown menu labeled "Download Graphic Template(s)." When selected, the templates will open in your browser by default. To save the template(s) to your local drive, please click the download icon situated in the top-right corner of the browser window.

All artwork is at least 72 DPI when placed on a full-scale template

The resolution of images incorporated into our templates should range between a minimum of 72 DPI and a maximum of 150 DPI. To ensure compatibility with the maximum canvas size of Photoshop and Illustrator, some of our templates have been designed at half-scale. For these half-scale templates, please increase the resolution to a minimum of 200 DPI. To verify the resolution of your embedded images, we recommend zooming into your artwork at 100% magnification.

The background artwork is extended to the full size of the document for bleed 

Most of our templates include bleed. To ensure that your artwork has the appropriate bleed, the intended graphic elements that you want to bleed should fill the entire document or artboard. Please note that extra bleed or crop marks are unnecessary.

All artwork is set using CMYK colors

All of our display graphics are printed using the CMYK color process. RGB, HEX, and Pantone colors will be converted to CMYK. We'll do our best to color match to your branding colors, but if critical color matching is a concern we recommend a hard proof or a consultation with your assigned designer to discuss color matching options.

All text has been converted to outlines.

One of the final steps when preparing your artwork is to save a version of your design with the fonts converted to outlines. This eliminates the need for you to provide us with the fonts that you incorporated into your design. Please note that fonts that have been converted to outlines can no longer be edited via the text tool.
Final artwork provided as a high-resolution PDF, AI, or PSD file

We prefer the final artwork to be sent in PDF, AI, EPS, or a PSD file, although we do accept high-resolution image files. Please also note that modifications to Flattened PSD files and Image formats such as JPEG, PNG, and TIFF are very limited. At this time we don't accept Canva files.
