I can’t tell you how many times I have received a customer file that is READY FOR PRODUCTION!
Thoughts: I came from a small format print design background before I started working at the best sign shop Fort Collins has. (I won’t say any names) Believe me when I say that large format and small format are two different animals! Below is a list of things that are helpful when sending in your files in for print.
- 1. Be sure to create outlines for all fonts or provide font files.
- 2. If you have specific pantones please include them in your artwork.
- 3. Send over layered files that are neatly organized.
- 4. Send over high resolution or vectored artwork.
Don’t be afraid to ask your designer questions. We would much rather answer questions for pre-press than spend all day fixing your files.
Yours Truly: designing daily, signs Fort Collins!
