What is the difference between a photo and vector?

Photos are created using dots. Vector is created using beizer curves. This allows the image to be scaled to large format while maintaining resolution and proportions.


Why should my logo be vector?

Your logo should be created in vector from the start to ensure it remains consistent for all types of media from your business card to a billboard or large format signs. This also ensures you never have to pay someone to recreate the image again in the future for such large format printing requirements.

Printing

Do you provide proofs?

We are happy to email proofs or a printed proof if needed. All printing requests will require approval of proof prior to printing.


Can you match PMS colors?

We always strive to match any color. When printing digitally, PMS colors are converted to CMYK. Small quantities are always printed digitally so the CMYK conversion will be used. Large quantities are printed on the press and the ink is mixed using the Panatone PMS color books. Many large job (5,000 or more) are printed on the press using a gang run style which may cause a slight color variation which is normal for many large offset printing companies. Please let us know upfront if a specific color matching is imperative as this will determine how and where your printing is completed. For an additional fee, a printed proof or offset color matching can be provided.


Can you print from online art programs such as Canva?

We do our best to work with all formats and services. Most of these services allow you to download a print pdf. Please let us know which service you are using and we will do our best to assist you.


What is a bleed?

When the design has color that goes all the way to the edge of the paper without a white border. (Or for the printer - the color goes past the "art" design edge, so it can be cut thru that color, giving a finished product, with color completely to the edge.)


How do I prepare an image with a bleed for print?

Please allow at least 1/8" of bleed around the image for printing. For instance, if the finished size is going to be 8.5" x 11", please create the design as 8.625" x 11.125" or 8.75" x 11.25". Please ensure the bleed area contains only the color or background design so no content is cut off. Please contact us if you would like assistance.


What is DPI and what DPI is optimal for printing?

DPI is dots per inch. For printing the DPI should be 300 to ensure the best quality images.


Why should I convert my image to CMYK before printing?

Colors vary between every screen and every printer. Screens use RGB (red,green,blue) to show images and printers use CMYK (cyan,magenta,yellow,black) to print the images. This may cause a slight variation between what you see on the screen and what is printed. Converting your design to CMYK helps ensure your preparing your design to print correctly and avoiding surprises.

No Problem. We are happy to work with any company you would like us too!
