A guide to setting up your artwork

To get best results from your portable display or graphics print job, please refer to the following guidelines:
Prepare artwork at 1/4 size in Quarkxpress
Image files should be CMYK eps or tif format at 300dpi (full size or 1/2 size is also OK - the image files should be prepared so that the printed size image is 72dpi)
Fonts used should be included
Vector eps files can be attached or embedded
but should have any fonts used included or be
converted to curves or outlines

Please supply a hard copy laser or inkjet print with your disk as a guide

Artwork Preparation for Digital Printing

To output High Quality Digital prints from your files please use the following guidelines:
We can accept files created in the following programs
Quark Xpress (Mac/PC)
PhotoShop 6 (Mac/PC)
Illustrator 9 (Mac/PC)
Coreldraw 9.0 (PC)
(Please contact your local dealer for advice in setting up your job)

Setup the panels in proportion to your panel and within an enlargement of 400%

1. Images need to be maximum 150dpi AT OUTPUT SIZE. I.e. if we are enlarging your image by 4x you will need to supply the files at 600dpi for optimum resolution on smaller panels (100 dpi is normally adequate for larger format output). Lower resolution images can be printed but original quality and amount of enlargement will affect the output.
2. Supply all images as CMYK
3. Include all used fonts including those used in logos and eps files.
4. All Photoshop scans should be saved as a single file document (DCS off).
5. Please supply a colour/black and white proof with your disk. We cannot guarantee the appearance of your panels without some visual reference
