Files should be in RGB. You can give us files in any color space, however it is very important that you embed the color profile you are using, especially if it isn’t sRGB. sRGB is the most commonly used color space if you are not familiar with color management. Embedding a valid ICC profile in your image is very important. Without embedding the profile, our software has no idea what color space your file is in, which will result in unexpected color in the prints. All files not tagged with an embedded profile are assumed to be in sRGB.
Files should be at least 100 ppi at the final enlargement size. ie: for a 24″ x 36″ print, we need at least 2400 x 3600 pixels. If you are unsure please give us a call and we can help you in preparing your file for us to print. If your file is low in resolution, we can “interpolate” it to prevent pixelization. How big we can make your file depends not only on resolution. The “viewing distance” is also a factor. A normal viewing distance is considered to be one diagonal of the image. Thus, an 8″ x 10″ print will look the same as an 8′ x 10′ print if you are at the proper viewing distance. If you will be viewing your print from a distance beyond one diagonal, we may be able to enlarge your image even bigger.
For EPS (Encapsulated Post Script), Adobe Illustrator, and Adobe InDesign files, please save as high resolution output PDF files. Please convert all CMYK, Duotone, Tritone, Quadtone files to RGB.
Don’t forget to back up your files!
