Type

All Text on files must be created to outlines, curves or paths.  Please make sure text is converted before saving PDF files.

Colour Settings

All Files must be set to CMYK format.  Please make sure there are no spot colours or pantones in your artwork as this can output unexpected results.  As our service is a CMYK 4 colour process we cannot guarantee exact matches to Pantone, Ral or Spot colours.

Colour Matching

We can match Pantones if required at an additional charge.   Please contact us prior to ordering as this is costed per job. We cannot guarantee an exact match on Pantone colours due to limitations of the CMYK print process but will try to achieve as close as physically possible.

Artwork Templates

For certain items an artwork template is supplied on the product page.  These templates are only for items which are set to a specified size. Ie feather flags / deckchairs etc.  This will need downloading and your artwork setting on the template prior to ordering.  If using the template please assign a separate layer for the artwork and save as a layered pdf, ai or eps file.  Please embed images and create outlines on the type before saving.

Print file names much be as short and descriptive as possible.

Use of Black

Correct Black Settings gives the print a deeper colour as sometimes using just black the image can look grainy and 'washed out’. If you have files with large amounts of black in the file, use the following guidelines.

UV Printing i.e. PVC/Mesh Banners

We recommend using a rich black which is made up of:
C50 / M50 / Y 50/ K100.

We recommend using a rich black which is made up of:
C0 / M0 / Y50 / K100.

Images

All images must be embedded into the document.

Resolution (DPI)

Please make sure that you save your file to the DPI Guidelines below. (In case of scaled files i.e.: if your file is set at 1:10 (10%) scale then the DPI must be x10 times higher to compensate)

Pole Pockets

When ordering make sure you select the finished overall size of your banner including the pockets. So if you select a 1m wide x 2m height, then we will manufacture the banner to a total the height of 2m including the pockets.

Clear areas on pole pockets

Please make sure that you leave a clear area for your pockets. The term ‘clear area’ means no items of text or logos.  So if you have 150mm flat pockets top and bottom, please don’t let any text or logos to run into these areas. Please note that on a 1500mm flat pocket you will also need to leave an additional 25mm extra for the weld (so 175mm in total. Background colours or images are fine, just no readable text or logos.

Double sided banners

We have special software which flips certain parts of your banners so as to create a seamless pocket on the opposite side. When ordering a double sided banner please just follow the above steps, as the file(s) will need to be set up in the same way. If you require a different image on each side of your double sided banner not a problem, just upload x2 files stating that you require a different image on each side.
For the full comprehensive guide on Pole Pockets click this link please refer to our Pole Pocket Guide here.

Bleed & Crop Marks

Banners, Fabrics and Backdrops

Set your artwork without bleed or crop marks. On banners please remember to leave clear area all around of 4cm so not to conflict with the position of the eyelets.

Decals, Vinyl Prints, Rigid Boards

Please supply all files with 5mm bleed all round.  Please don’t save the files with crop marks.

Cut to shape

Vinyl / static cling

In case of an artwork being cut to shape, we require a 5mm bleed plus a contour cut supplied in a separate layer. The cut line should be a contrasting stroke colour to the artwork and clearly named in an individual layer ‘CutContour’

Banners

When showing eyelet positions and/or wind slits or cutter lines on banners.  Please supply the artwork file and a separate cutter file.  Please ensure that both files are set to the same artboard size and are set to the same scale.
Please supply a separate ai, eps, or pdf file with the cutter or eyelets marks.

Please note

Banner World can not be held responsible for any spelling errors / typos / incorrect telephone numbers, or improper setup of files.  If we believe that a file is incorrect before production we will contact you and request a new file.  We may refuse to accept files not suitably prepared for print.  Any additional operations aimed at correcting files to the above guidelines and all changes made by Banner World upon the request of the customer shall be treated as an additional service and may incur an extra surcharge.
