File Tips

  • No bleeds are necessary (unless ordering a banner stand that requires one). Most signs will not use a bleed.
  • Set up size proportionate to the size banner, canvas or sign you are ordering.
  • To prevent any text or Important images from falling on the hemline or interrupted by a grommet if ordering banners, you will want to keep them at least 2" away from edge.
  • Convert all text to outlines

A proof of what you ordered will be sent to you for approval before we make the item.
