Artwork Submission Guidelines
Vector Image Files
Simulated Process Screen Printing Productions
McGRAPHIX Advertising Products can accept bitmap images. These are properly formatted CMYK 300 DPI imagery originated to 100% scale for all items except our line of Tents - Displays - Signs. These larger items print at a maximum output of 200 DPI. ALL 300 bitmap images need to be originally scaled at 100% output size or the same scaled within Phtoshop. Otherwise, the image will print with jagged pixelated edges or blurriness.
Printing Color Pallets
Spot color printing requires the use of the Pantone Solid Color palette in vector based files with 100% CMYK Black color assignments.
Always use external Pantone Colors Swatch Books when assigning color to digital files. This is the only method the industry can use to monitor color in production applications. Computer monitors colors are unreliable and in RGB format. When assigning CMYK colors, use only the values contained with the Pantone Process Color Guidebook and code them in the artwork file.
Use only Solid Pantone or CMYK color values. Using RGB for any printing project will cause avoidable color production issues.
