  • Large Format File Guidelines

  • Ensure that all raster files (or linked images) are built at least 150 ppi. Lower ppi’s are acceptable if your viewers will be seeing the artwork from a distance. 

  • Rasterize or Outline any type layers.

  • Remember to keep adequate space for grommets, hems, wind slits or pole pockets.

  • If using a design template, do not flatten the artwork onto the template.

  • If your files do not meet these requirements — or if your artwork is not optimized for the printing process — please consult with your Account Manager.





With embroidery you can send us any type of file.


  • Vector or Raster Files: PDF / EPS / AI / JPG / GIF / PNG



These files will be used for reference to create your embroidery file. There will almost always be a setup fee for embroidery because your logo will have to be digitized. Digitizing is a specialized process that only embroidery professionals can setup. Email us your file and we'll give you a quote on the setup fee.


If you have had your logo embroidered before and you want to use the same file with no changes, we may be able to use the file you already have. If that's the case, send us your digitized file and we'll check it out.
