Artwork Requirements


Scale

Where possible artwork should be supplied in actual size(1:1 Scale). For large banners, where it is not possible to supply artwork at actual size, please supply it at either 50% or 10% and advise us at what percentage you have provided.

Resolution

We recommend artwork be supplied at 300dpi for best printing results. Bitmap or raster artwork must be a minimum of 150dpi at 100%, however a minimum of 300dpi is recommended. In order to check the resolution of your artwork, view your artwork at 100% and make sure that every element is sharp. The quality of the art at 100% is the same as how the document will print. If pixilation is visible at 100%, your print will be pixelated

Colour

Express Banners prints using a digital CMYK colour process. If colour is of particular concern we can colour match PMS colours or provide you with a proof. Extra charges will apply for this service. Contact us directly if you need a proof or colour matching. You banner will be produced within 24 hours of receiving approval to print.

Bleeds

Please do not provide artwork with bleeds or crop marks for any of our products. If you would like an Outdoor Vinyl Banner to be 1m x 2m please ensure your document is set to 1m x 2m. Pull Up Banner artwork must be set to the specific document size outlined in the artwork specifications for each size Pull Up Banner available on our website. Templates for Pull Up Banners can also be found on our website www.expressbanners.com.au.

File Formats

We accept PDF and JPG files. We prefer files are created using Adobe Illustrator, Photoshop or Indesign. For best results with colour and gradient we recommend Adobe Illustrator or Photoshop. 

If you do not have a professional design program you might like to talk to us about our design service. If you upload a PDF that has been created from a Microsoft program such as Word, Publisher or Powerpoint you may be very disappointed with the results. We cannot guarantee your print will turn out as expected and you do so at your own risk.

Submitting your artwork

Our website will accept files up to 80mb. If your file is larger than this please use a web-based file sending service such as yousendit.com

Finishing your artwork

If you are providing us with a PDF file, please convert all text to outlines or curves, and place a clipping mask around your artwork, so that no elements are hanging off the page.

Pull Up Banners Sizes

All critical text and images should not be placed in the top 10mm of the document or the bottom 30mm of the document, as this information may not be visible.
