Requirements for Submission of Digital Files

All images must be sized to fit the 16" x 20" substrate. If you want a border left around the image please size the file accordingly.

Acceptable File Formats:
•Adobe Photoshop
•Adobe Illustrator
•Adobe InDesign

AI CS3 or earlier

All Photoshop Files:
•All files must be saved with a minimum resolution of 300 dpi at the largest reproduction size.
• For quality assurance, we prefer that all Photoshop files be submitted with working layers (NOT flattened), channels, and paths or masks. If file must be submitted flattened, we prefer them to be saved as TIFF or EPS files. JPEG images are not recommended due to file compressions which may lead to a severe loss of quality.
•If the Photoshop image or part of the image was created using vector elements from other programs such as Illustrator, please provide the original working file, text, and/or fonts.
•Bitmapped images cannot be converted. If you are sending a bitmapped file, please also include the original grayscale file.

Vector Artwork:
•We must be able to alter any part of the files. Do not embed TIFFs, EPS, or any other file into a Illustrator document, as we cannot make the preparations we need to do to print these designs.
•Send designs at the actual reproduction size.
•Documents should be saved as editable EPS files. Include all fonts used and support documents required to open the file. There are various versions to even the most common fonts that can lead to type shifts and other misalignments. When possible, convert all live type in the artwork (In Illustrator its Create Outlines.) Smallest Optimum size for copy is 12 point. Some fonts require a larger point size or bolding, especially if reverse copy is needed. If it is necessary to mix Truetype and Postscript fonts, please convert type to outlines.
•Reminder: Always check spelling before converting live type. WallReady is NOT responsible for misspellings after artwork has been submitted.

Additional Tips:
•Keep only necessary items within your file. Delete unwanted elements that are off the page, or elements unused within the design. (i.e. cloned items hidden underneath the design.)
•Do not assign a shape an outline with a 0-point line weight. It may also alter the art when we need to output the final separations.
•When scanning images or original art, please scan at a minimum of 300 dpi in RGB. Images should be scanned at the highest resolution possible and as close to the finished size as possible.
• Image quality for scanned artwork sent to us is the responsibility of the provider. Please take all necessary steps in providing the cleanest and sharpest image.
•When naming your files, please identify files with their appropriate extensions. For example, .psd = Photoshop, .ai = Illustrator, .tif = TIFF files, .eps = EPS files, and so on.
•Remove any extra colors not used in the design. If the design uses spot colors, make sure that all of the colors are spot colors, not CMYK process or RGB.
• As a rule of thumb, spots colors should not have percentages lower than 10%. If you need a lighter color for those areas, choose an additional spot color. We cannot color match a percentage of a spot color.
•Delete or remove any excess points that may be on the document. This can happen when you start to draw with a pen tool and only click once, not continuing to draw a shape or line.

Things to Avoid:
•When changing the size of scanned artwork, be aware that the reducing an image retains most image quality. Enlarging an image from an existing smaller size will result in severe quality loss.
•Changing scanned images from a CMYK to RGB color modes and back again may result in a loss of image quality.

Color Matching
Due to the various substrates exact color matches are not always possible. Please allow for slight variances on PMS and spot colors.

DISCLAIMER: Due to the variety of methods and programs used when creating electronic art, we are not always able to open a document and go directly to press. Therefore, information exchanged electronically will be given a maximum time allotment of fifteen minutes for reading and assessment by our art staff. If a file cannot be opened or errors are found regarding the way art has been assembled, we will advise you of our needs so that you may decide whether or not to make your own corrections.
