What Types of Design files do we use for Large Format Printing?
General File Guidelines for Wide Format Printing:
- Set Resolution to 150dpi for wide format printing. Vinyl banners, yard signs, other printed signs always look great at lower resolution. This saves space on file size, and lowers the required resources on your computer. Remember, People won't be looking at your banner from inches away. They will have to step far back to take in the entire picture!
- Microsoft Office products are not recommended. We can not use any Word or PowerPoint documents for printing. Unfortunately these file types do not work in our operation.
- We design 90% of our files using Adobe Illustrator. We recommend that you do to. Illustrator can keep file sizes way down while your are working on your 8x8 Step and Repeat Banner or billboard!
