File set-up guide
We can prepare your files for print for a small fee ($2.50 per image, or $40 per hour for 10+ images), but if you’re keen to save a little money, here’s a quick check-list that will help you to do it yourself. As an added bonus, if your files are print-ready when we receive them you’re likely to receive your final prints quicker.
• Images to be sized to final print size, including a minimum 15mm margin
• Flattened layers
• Either TIF, JPEG or PSD/Photoshop document format
• Either 8 bit or 16 bit
• In RGB colour space
Our large format printing process was not intended for producing full bleed images, therefore we prefer all files to have 15 mm margin factored into the canvas size. If you require a different border, just let us know – we have ways and means! Do keep in mind this may change the size of the media we print on and therefore your order cost.
Files will be printed at the resolution you provide. For best results, all files should be supplied with a resolution of 300ppi or higher at the final size you intend your prints (without any upscaling). If we have any concerns with the resolution of your image, we’ll contact you prior to printing. If you have questions regarding how large you can print an image please get in touch – we can either advise you via email or arrange a consultation to discuss your options.
