Art Specs / File Requirements

Please contact us if you have any questions.

SOFTWARE

Files created on Adobe Illustrator CC or Adobe Photoshop CC (or earlier versions of both) are acceptable. Adobe InDesign CC is also accepted.
We run on Windows platform (see notes below for font requirements)
If any other program was used to create the artwork please export your file to a PDF file.

FILE FORMATS

Pixel based images: TIFF, PSD, PSB, JPG (only high quality JPG’s are accepted)
Vector based graphics: AI, EPS, PDF (enable editing capabilities if available)

ARTWORK

Pixel images should be submitted at 100% final print size & at a minimum resolution of 150 dpi (dots per inch)
If the pixel image file is not available at 100% final print size a resolution of 300 dpi is required.
Please be aware that scaling a pixel image might create undesirable results (low detail pixelated images).
Vector artwork can be submitted at any scale. Please indicate final desired size.
All artwork intended for custom dye cut jobs must be submitted in vector format.
Please keep in mind that a minimum of 3” of bleed (extra image beyond final size) on each side is required on the artwork for any wall covering job.
Any placed image on files should be linked instead of embedded. Please provide the linked files.
Please provide the original layered Photoshop file if available. This will allow us to adjust the image if necessary.
If you intend to use any effect (such as drop shadows), we recommend to use Photoshop to create your artwork.
Unexpected results can occur when these effects are applied in Illustrator and InDesign..

FONTS

When submitting any vector file containing text please convert all fonts to outlines (curves).
If you anticipate that changes will be needed, please submit a version of your file with the text fully editable as well as the original font files.
Please keep in mind that we run on Microsoft Windows platform.e.

COLOR MATCHING

Pantone Matching System (PMS) is the most commonly used color guide for printing.
Please indicate all required PMS colors to be matched and make sure to create your file using the desired PMS colors.
If other colors are required to be matched (such as paint colors), please provided a physical reference of the color (paint chip or swatches)
and clearly specify these colors on your files..
