Sign Artwork & Graphics

sign-artwork-graphicsWhen it comes to marketing your business, one thing is for sure:

A good first impression means everything.

Getting your custom signage from is a great place to start, but there are still a few things you need to keep in mind, especially if you are using custom artwork as opposed to using one of our templates.

Sign Artwork Requirements

When sending us your artwork, we have a few requirements that will help to ensure that your finished sign is flawless and professional.
We are able to accept several formats for your sign artwork, but for absolute best results, we need the original vector source file that was used to create the design. Your source file was likely created in a graphics program like Adobe Illustrator, Adobe Photoshop or CorelDraw. These programs generate files with specific file extensions.

• Adobe Illustrator source files end in .ai
• Adobe Photoshop source files end in .psd
• CorelDraw source files end in .cdr

In some instances, files ending in .pdf or .eps may also contain vector information, so please send these to us as well if they are available.

If you do not have a source file containing vector information, files ending in .jpg, .png, .pde or .eps may be usable if certain requirements are met. They must have a minimum resolution of 150 dpi, and the file needs to be the same size as the intended output. In other words, if you are planning on creating a 2’ x 4’ banner, then the .jpg (or .png, etc.) file needs to have a canvas size of 2’ x 3’ as well.

Unfortunately, we are unable to turn a 4” x 6” graphic, for example, into a full-size banner due to loss of resolution when resizing.
