    In an effort to better serve our clients, we have compiled some brief
    specifications to assist in preparation of electronic art files.
    We recommend that you upload your art file(s) to us using the
    “Send A File” function on our company web site. Have any questions?
    Please give us a call at 201-567-5112

               A. Acceptable File Types

  • Your file must be either a VECTOR (line art) image or a
    RASTER (photo) image.
  • We accept PC based files and can work with virtually any
    software except Adobe InDesign and Quark Xpress.
  • Website graphics are almost always unusable due to their low
    resolution.
  • Acceptable file types include the following:
     Adobe Illustrator (.ai)  
     Adobe Acrobat (.pdf)  
     EPS Files (.eps)  
     TIF Files (.tif)  
     JPEG Files (.jpg)

         B. Acceptable Resolution

  • We require a minimum resolution of 100-150 dpi at 100% file
    size or 200-300 dpi at 50% file size on all Raster Based
    designed and submitted files such as TIF, PSD, JPEG & etc.
  • Vector images (ie-line art) must have all text or fonts converted
    to OUTLINES. Many programs offer an option to save or export
    text as vectors, curves, paths or outlines. Make sure to convert
    all fonts to outlines, curves or paths to avoid possible font
    substitution.

               C. Color Requirements

  • If specific color specs are to be achieved on your sign, include
    Pantone Colors for your files, or provide a hard copy of the
    approximate colors desired. Premier Banner uses Pantone
    Matching System (PMS) color specs extensively when color
    matching is of importance to our client.
                    
               D. File Size

  • Direct Email- file sizes of less than 5MB can be emailed directly
    to us.
  • FTP Upload- larger files require use of our ftp site. Total size of
    all uploaded files to our ftp site should be less than 1 gigabyte.
  • Remember to not close the the “Send a File” window until after
    the file has been completely uploaded and you are redirected
    back to our company webpage.

           E. File Preparation and Helpful Notes

  • Convert all fonts to Outlines/Curves where possible, if not
    please include all fonts used in File.
  • Save your design in CMYK MODE, we can also work with RGB
    files however in some cases there may be color shift.
  • You can also Design your files at 50% (200-300 dpi) or 25%
    (400-600 dpi) of final output size.
    (Please Indicate final output enlargement size percentage when
    submitting file).
  • For the best results on printing Solid Blacks (Excluding text
    smaller than 30 pt.)use C=30% M=20% Y=20% K=100%.
  • JPEG files must be saved with maximum quality setting checked.
  • Banners must have at least 2.5” Bleed (Safety Area for hem
    and grommet) at final print size.
  • Live area of the banner should remain within the 2.5” bleed
    area.
  • Pole Pockets, If required, allow 4” Bleed area (Safety area) on
    the sides where pocket poles are
    required.
  • Important note: Please do not place important objects, text and
    key elements too close to the edge of your banner artwork files
    as they will be trimmed off, hemmed or grommeted during
    finishing of your banner. For the best results keep your key
    elements of your design 2” to 3” inside the edges.
