BackSpin Graphics Artwork Requirements

BackSpin Graphics Artwork Requirements: 

Bad art can lead to horrible results.

For bitmap printing We prefer that you rasterize your image to the proper print size and resolution before you send it to us. Use at least 300dpi and a CMYK workspace.

The filetypes we accept are: .EPS, .JPG, .PDF, .PS, .TIF

For cutfiles, we accept: .AI, .EPS, .PDF, .SVG

With vector files will always want to make sure to convert your file to curves or outlines, depending on what program you are using. 

For banners Please keep all text and graphics 1 - 1 1/2" away from all edges to allow for welding and grommets.

Please create all files at 50% of the actual size and scale it to size in the system. If you are unable to create it to full size and keep the file under 100 mb, this is your only option. Otherwise, your file will print pixelated or blurry or possibly look bit mapped.

Providing valid artwork files and print specifications is critical to ensuring your orders are processed smoothly.

General principles
