How to Prepare Your Artwork for Printing

If You Do Not Have Artwork:

We can help you create a design with our Full Design Service. Our Graphic Designers can help you create an eye-catching design under your guidelines and direction. We can work from previous designs or sketch out an original idea based on your requirements.

If You Will Be Creating Your Own Design:

You can use our artwork templates to help you design your own artwork.
Please keep in mind the following considerations:


Size

Image Quality

Colour

Editing

Your graphic file must match the dimensions of the product you are ordering EXACTLY. For example, if the image size of your stand is 33" X 78" then you would need to submit to us a 33" X 78" graphic file. Do not add bleed or crop marks, as this is all done at our end. In order to ensure the highest quality print possible, please verify that your graphic file is at least 150 DPI in resolution, and that all images and text are clear and smooth. Set the "Zoom" in your editing software to "Print Size" to ensure that your design is not blurry or pixelated.
Please also ensure that all text has been proofread prior to submission to avoid spelling mistakes or typos. Signworld Canada cannot check for typos or other content errors.
Your graphic needs to be set to CMYK mode. This ensures that what we print will match as closely as possible to your design. Signworld Canada is not responsible for unsatisfactory color results. If the artwork is color sensitive, please contact us about our color matching services. To help you get your design ready to print, we offer a $35 " Touch-Up Fee." The Touch-Up Fee covers 1/2 hour of design work and includes small changes to size, text, image placement, or color correction. If your design requires more than 1/2 hour of alteration, please see our "Full Design Service" option above.

File Format:

Signworld Canada accepts the following file formats: TIFF, flattened PDF, high-quality JPG. Formats Please keep your artwork files under 1GB in file size if possible.
