What is Bleed?

Bleed refers to the ink printed beyond the trim edge of your project. When printing on any press, there is a slight degree of movement. Adding bleed to all edges of your working document ensures that ink extends to the edge of your final product and trims are inside the ink line. Supplying a project without a bleed may result in white lines as we trim to final size. We require a minimum of 0.125″ bleed, but we prefer 0.25″ on larger files.

What resolution should I make my files?

We recommend 300 dpi on all raster graphics, especially on any large print that will be viewed from up close. DPI is the amount of ink per inch, known as Dots Per Inch. For large items, like wall graphics and banners that are hung at a distance, 150 dpi will provide a quality print.

Resolution cannot be added to an image. Increasing the resolution in your graphics files will not translate to a higher quality print.

What file types may I upload to LargePrint.com?

We accept Adobe Illustrator, Adobe Photoshop and InDesign files. We prefer a press-ready .PDF with all fonts and imagery embedded. But, we also accept AI, PSD, INDD, EPS, JPG and TIFF formats.

Make sure all parts are CMYK. Please package native files.
