Special guidelines

To avoid production delays and/or additional surcharges, please follow the guidelines below before you bring in or send files.

Retouching – The optimal resolution for output is 300 dots per inch at your final print size. Do not send in multiple files with mixed resolutions.

Aspect Ratio – Be sure to confirm that cropped or resized accordingly. Your image dimensions must match the print sizes requested.

Colour Space – We recommend AdobeRGB as it has the widest gamut. sRGB is ok, though it is primarily used online for social media and websites.

Bit Depth – Convert all RAW files from 16-bit to 8-bit colour depth before sending. Higher bit depths do not provide significant benefits.

File Format – For digitally supplied files. set JPEGs to a Max 12 setting in Photoshop. Also, make sure that all PSD and TIFF files are flattened accordingly.
