Artwork, upload it wisely

Full Color Images
Some jobs that are sent across will require full color printing. These are usually things such as photographs, digital artwork and images that contain a lot of detail in the lines and gradients. We recommend that you send across an image that is high res and has a 250 dpi as a minimum. This will ensure that we are able to get the best quality image from our printers. Our equipment is very good and our printers are experts in their field but we can only print an image as good as the original artwork. If the image appears blurry when you look at it on your computer screen then there is a good chance that it will look the same when it is printed. It is also important to make sure that the colors are the ones that you want. There is a chance that there could be a 5% difference between the color that you see on your screen and the one that will be printed. This is because the settings of the screens on every monitor is different and so there will always be a slight variation. This does not apply for screen printing because the colors are chosen after the image has been sent. In short, if you want a printed image that is clean and crisp then it must be sent to us in this way.

Spot Color Images
Images that have only a few colors are much easier to provide. These types of images are mostly used for screen printing. It is still important that you provide a good image that is crisp and clean when enlarged on your screen(this means it may look good on your phone screen but does it look good when full size on your computer screen). If the image is good there should be very little or none pixilation around the edges of the image, therefore when we print it will come out nice and crisp. Lastly as you will be choosing the colors that will be printed you do not have to worry as much about the colors in the image that is sent as long as the colors are different (if its a one color design, everything in color will be transferred to one color, if more than one color you just need to make sure the image is in two different colors so we know what you want what color).
