Art Guidelines

IMPORTANT! The requirements for Large format output are different from standard printing. Please DO NOT SET UP at 300DPI as you would for typical printing. 100-150dpi is more than sufficient.


Artwork Resolution All artwork should be 100 DPI when enlarged to full size. If you are working in scale at 50% it should be X2 or 200DPI etc. Vector art such as EPS files can be expanded indefinitely and resolution is not an issue.
