  • Good Quality:

Why 125 DPI?

Since your banner will be a large format print, you don’t need to prepare your file in 300 DPI which is usually used for smaller format print.

If you are uncertain of the quality of your images, please call us at 800.831.7108 or email us at graphics@exponetUSA.com.

Color Mode

Your file has to be in CMYK mode.

Saving

When you are done with the design, save the file in EPS format.

If you have extra graphics outside of the finished size area, create a crop area with the exact size of finishing size before saving.

If you need our graphic designers to modify your art work, send us your original Illustrator file(s).

(Graphic modification – $65 per hour. Please call for estimated time.)

You’re almost done!

Before you upload the file(s) to us, open the EPS file you just saved.

Review all the graphics/text and make sure the dimension is right.
