GENERAL FILE REQUIREMENTS

Our service requires that you provide correctly sized and formatted artwork. We do not resize artwork to match mockups as part of our service. Bellow you will find information about file format, resolution, size, and tips on how to prepare your artwork. Incorrectly formatted artwork may result in delays in order processing.

Preferred Format 1 (.png)

  • Saved at 300 dpi (recommended), 8 bit color, in RGB mode.

For Reference

  • Images found on the web and on websites are tipically only 72 DPI resolution, and as such are unsuitable. These images are also normally smaller than the desired print size which will be distorted if resized. We recommended that if you want to look for Images on the web look for wallpaper type of images they are big in size, good in quality and they are saved in higher resolution too.
