IMPORTANT SOFTWARE SETTINGS
Set canvas size (image size) to real banner size in inches (33″x84″).
Set file resolution to 300 dpi or greater.
Set Color Mode to CMYK (or RGB if CMYK is unavailable).
Do not include bleeds, printer prints edge to edge.
Include background color in your file.
All banners are 33″ x 84″
Design the banner at 300 dpi or higher since this will help you take maximum advantage of a banner printer.
Saving your design in high resolution PDF is highly recommended. Also submit the original file to make sure you get the correct output.
Keep all text within the 1-inch margins to avoid the possibility of any text being cut off during the finishing process.
