Raster file (ie: Photographs) should be a minimum resolution of 300dpi for best results.  If we are enlarging a file higher resolution is prefered.  Prefered Raster file formats: JPG, PNC, TIFF.

Vector file (ie: Illustrator, Inkscape, Corel Draw) do not have a resolution and can be enlarged without quality loss.  Common vector file types are: AI, EPS, PDF.  If uncommon fonts are used please create outlines of the text first.

It is not possible to print all the way to the edge of a sheet of paper/card, to achieve this it is necessary to print a larger area than is needed and then trim the paper/card down to the required size. Images, background images and fills which are intended to extend to the edge of the page must be extended an 1/8 inch beyond the cut line to give a bleed. Text and other images that you need on your finished job must sit 3/16 of an inch in from the cut line.  You can find free templates for many common jobs on our template page.

Yeah we do that too
