To produce amazing quality digital prints, we need high quality artwork. To assist in this process, please see below our guidelines for file setup and artwork specifications.
Check that the file is set to the same size which is nominated on your quotation.
Refer to our templates page for product specific file set up requirements and guidelines.
All images should be 100dpi at final size however if setting up your files at a scale please ensure that the dpi is adjusted accordingly
to ensure the best possible print quality of any imagery being produced see below as reference for the required dpi at different
File size at 100% = 100dpi
File size at 50% = 200dpi
File size at 25% = 400dpi
File size at 10% = 1000dpi
The better quality the imagery the better print result we can achieve however please try to adjust your dpi accordingly, if
the dpi is set too high which makes the file sizes too large and unmanageable you will be requested to scale back the file
size so we can handle your files for file set up.
All fonts to be converted to outlines.
Visualcom print in CMYK all colours within the file are to be set to CMYK with any specific required PMS colours nominated
within the file. Visualcom will strive to produce the best possible print result by colour matching the PMS colour to a CMYK
breakdown however this must be nominated within the file or flagged at time of your order. Colour matching or test print
charges may apply.
