Artwork Guidelines

Graphics designed using the templates provided on our website:

Templates for each of our displays can be found on their respective product pages.  Upon selection, the templates will open in your browser by default. To save the template(s) to your local drive, click the download icon situated in the top-right corner of the browser window.

All artwork is at least 72 DPI when placed on a full-scale template:

The resolution of images incorporated into our templates should range between a minimum of 72 DPI and a maximum of 150 DPI. To ensure compatibility with the maximum canvas size of Photoshop and Illustrator, some of our templates have been designed at half scale. For these half-scale templates, increase the resolution to a minimum of 200 DPI. To verify the resolution of your embedded images, we recommend zooming into your artwork at 100% magnification.

Background artwork is extended to the full size of the document for bleed:

Most of our templates include bleed. To ensure your artwork has the appropriate bleed, fill the entire document or artboard with the intended graphic elements you want to bleed. Please note that extra bleed or crop marks are unnecessary.

All artwork is set up using CMYK colors:

All our display graphics are printed using the CMYK color process. RGB, HEX, and Pantone colors will be converted to CMYK. We'll do our best to color match to your branding colors, but if critical color matching is a concern, we recommend a hard proof or consultation with your assigned designer to discuss color matching options.

All text has been converted to outlines:

One of the final steps in preparing your artwork is to save a version of your design with the fonts converted to outlines/paths. This eliminates the need for you to provide us with the fonts you incorporated into your design. Please note that fonts converted to outlines can no longer be edited via the text tool.

All images are embedded and not linked:

Embedding images, rather than linking them, allows you to upload one complete print-ready file to us. This is a common process when providing Adobe Illustrator files and sometimes Adobe InDesign files.

Avoid using white or light colored backgrounds:

Be mindful of using too much white or light-colored backgrounds, as this can cause the LED lights and frame to be more visible or create hotspots in the display. Instead, consider using darker colors or gradients to minimize this issue.

Avoid Large Areas Of Black:

The "color" black represents the absence of light. When LED lights shine through a tension fabric, it can alter the appearance of black, making it seem grey, blue, or even green.

Final artwork provided as a high-resolution Ai, PDF, or PSD file:

We prefer final artwork to be sent in Ai, PDF, or PSD file formats, although we accept high-resolution image files and Adobe InDesign files as well. Please note that InDesign files require you to send the linked elements as well. Also, modifications to flattened PSD files and image formats such as JPEG, PNG, and TIFF are very limited. At this time, we don't accept Canva files.

Artwork can be uploaded prior to adding a display to your project.  Simply click the artwork upload button on the product page and browse for you artwork files.
