Online Design Tool
The easiest way to create artwork for your signs is to use our ONLINE DESIGN TOOL. Select a Product & click Design It. You can then add text, insert Clip Art form our Clip Art Library or upload You Own Image. Editing text, setting fonts and colors is easy. Remember, you can choose from 1000's of clip art designs or add your own digital files.
Uploading Images and Logos
You may create printed products on our web site using digitized images from a variety of sources. Your designs, photos and images can come from a design program such as PhotoShop, Adobe Illustrator, Corel Draw or similar program.
Files such as .eps, .ai, .svg work best when adding an image to your design in our ONLINE DESIGNER. These are vector based images that will maintain their crispness no matter how small or large they are reproduced. If your artwork or logos were designed by someone else, they may have only provided you with a Raster Image as below. Please contact them and have them forward a Vector based image for ultimate flexibility in your finished product.
JPEGs or Raster Images
Files such as .jpg, .bmp, .gif and .tif are raster images that will only blow up so much before becoming pixilated or jagged in your final design. Any raster image you plan to use must be saved at approximately 300-dpi at 100% output size for the best results. If your logo is going to be approximately 50% of the left side of a 3’ by 6’ banner, then your logo needs to be at 300 dpi for whatever actual size it is on the finished product if using raster images.
Images from the Web
Images found on the web are typically at a resolution of 72-dpi. This resolution is much too low for quality printing. In addition, most images on the web are protected by copyright laws. For these reasons, we do not recommend using images from the web.
Sending Print Ready Files
If you have already designed your sign or banner outside of the Online Design tool and want us to print them, we can accept the following file formats:
eps - Postscript
pdf - Acrobat
ai - Adobe Illustrator® (MAC) (convert TEXT to outlines)
tif - Bitmap
If your software isn't listed above, most programs will export in one of the formats above. Please remember to convert any text to outlines (.ai) - Our FONTS are probably different than yours. Just email us the file or if larger than 10mgs, email for FTP instructions. If using Rastered files, remember to save out at 300 dpi at FULL SIZE.
We can print most any digital file that you send us including photographs and complex artwork.
We list the standard pricing for our signs. Additional time or materials involved in typesetting, formatting artwork, retrieving files and fonts, scanning, color matching, etc. may apply. You will be notified prior to production if necessary.
