In order to get the best possible result from your pop up project, there are a few guidelines to follow when creating your artwork.
1. Save colours as CMYK
Our wide format ink-jet printers all use CMYK colour to output. If your design work includes Pantones, RGB colours or Duotones we strongly recommend converting these colours to CMYK for optimum results and colour matching. It is advisable to clearly mention on a layout all pantones or other colours you want us to match to.
2. Document Sizes & Resolutions
We suggest setting your artwork at the following sizes and minimum resolutions
100% size at 150dpi
50% size at 300dpi
25% size at 600dpi
Please either include or embed all fonts when sending your artwork. In the case of TIFF or JPEG files fonts will not be required
All your scans should be high resolution and saved as CMYK colour. If possible we suggest keeping scans to a minimum of 150dpi-finished size. If you are supplying artwork, we can accept hard copy for scanning from original photographs (up to A3), negatives, transparencies or 35mm slides.
If supplying your own popup display artwork we suggest sending either a hard copy colour proof or an Adobe PDF with your artwork. If you choose to use us for your design preparation we will supply proofs either by hard copy or via email as an Adobe PDF document.
If you require a set of reduced size colour proofs before we run to print we can organise this at a small cost.
Should you require any more information with regards to this or any other service we offer, please don’t hesitate to contact a member of our sales or design team.
