FIVE IMPORTANT RULES

1. As you see it, we will print it

The file must have the size you need it to print and in the direction you want to see it, if you don´t know how to do it please request the resize service, FREE OF CHARGE! Just be aware it could delay the order one day.

2. Select the inks you need

If your design is in one color or two colors you can select from our stock inks

If you want to order FULL COLOR PROCESS be aware we will print every color in your file, do not upload background colors. Use white only where you wish to have white printed.

3. Format for your Art files

If you only have an image in .JPG, .PNG or TIFF it should have a high resolution of 300 dp.i. at the size you need it, but don´t worry! if you don´t know how to do it we can help you at [email protected]

4. Printing requirements

For 1 and 2 color design

The printing areas must have a minimum thickness of 1 pt.

For full color designs

The printing areas must have 3 pt (9 Pixels) of thickness to print correctly

The areas you want to be hollow must have 2 pt. of thickness to prevent the merge of the ink
