Print Guidelines for Uploaded Art

In order to ensure your prints come out looking as good as possible there's a couple of things you'll need to keep in mind.

1. Image Specifications:

  • Colour Mode: Convert your images to CMYK colour mode. This ensures that the colours in your prints closely match the colours produced by our 10-colour CMYK printer.
  • Image Size: Images for A2 print should be 5008 pixels by 7063 pixels (or 424mm x 598mm) at 300 DPI (dots per inch). This resolution ensures sharp and clear prints without pixelation.
  • Typically we prepare files for A2 only, then downscale for A3 if required - if you would prefer to resize the A3 files yourself please let us know and we can provide a spec for you.

2. Transparency:

  • Remove any transparencies from your images before uploading. Transparency effects might not translate well to print and could result in unintended visual outcomes.

3. Colour Variation:

  • Keep in mind that printed colours may appear slightly different from what you see on your RGB LED screen. Our printer utilizes a 10-colour CMYK system, which can produce a wider range of colours than traditional 4-colour systems. Therefore, some colours might appear richer or more saturated in print - if in doubt  we'd recommend erring towards brightening your files slightly if the designs are dark or use a lot of black.

4. Template Usage:

  • For your convenience, we offer templates that match our printing specifications. Using our templates ensures that your artwork is accurately sized and positioned, reducing the risk of any cropping or alignment issues during printing.
