Image File Basics

  • File Format: Save your artwork digital files as a high-resolution JPEG, TIFF, PNG or PSD. These formats will retain the quality and detail of your artwork best for printing.

  • Resolution: The resolution of your image should be at least 300 pixels per inch. This ensures that your printed artwork will be sharp and clear.

  • Color Profile: Use an RGB color profile for your artwork file and embed the icc profile whenever prompted. While some prefer CMYK for print, our printers are RGB devices and will provide the most accurate color reproduction using this color profile.
