Artwork Specifications

At Banner Printing Android we are committed to providing you with the best possible wide format print quality.  We have tried to make things as simple as possible but please don't hesitate to get in touch if you need any support.

Artwork Check.

If you are not sure how your artwork will look when it prints then we are happy to offer an artwork check at the cost of £5. This is a service where we will check your artwork for Size, Legibility (thin text) & image pixelation on all jobs! Simply upload your artwork when you place your order. Once we've checked the artwork over, one of the team will get back to you highlighting any potential issues with the order! 

 Normally we should be able to check over a file within a couple of office hours, we can even talk over your artwork on the phone if so required. This can be a little longer during busy periods.

Sending artwork. 

When placing an order you will have the opportunity to upload your artwork before making payment. If your artwork is not quite ready but you would like to place an order (for example to take advantage of a current offer) it is possible to email your artwork at a later date. Email the artwork to and put your invoice your subject heading. 

Preparing Artwork 

Create your artwork at the actual size of the finished product, or scaled proportionally.

The best resolution for images is 100dpi at full size.
(If you work at a scaled size you need to allow for the enlargement: SO if your artwork is at 25% size then the image resolution needs to be 400dpi.)

DO NOT add bleed
DO NOT add crop/trim marks
DO NOT send artwork which floats in a larger area.
DO NOT include anything on the artwork that you do not want to be printed on the final banner.

Save a copy of your artwork to send to us. You can send:

PDF FILES - should be in pdf version 1.5 or higher, with all fonts embedded.
DO NOT SAVE DOWN TO PDF VERSION 1.3 - this is likely to reduce the quality of your artwork.

If you are using PHOTOSHOP, flatten your file and save it as a .TIF file, using LZW compression,
or as a .JPG using the HIGHEST QUALITY setting, and send this file.
