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:
AI CS3 or earlier
INDD CS3 or CS2
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.
•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
•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
• 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.
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.
