Gradients are useful for producing effective and desired results in printing. Gradients can be used in file through vector and Raster. Before submitting your final draft and final artwork, we highly suggest and recommend you check and read thoroughly our given guidelines.

It is crucial to receive all fonts used in your layout. If you are unable to provide us fonts in your artwork file, we request you to resubmit the file with accurate fonts.
If your file is missing fonts, open your file in Illustrator, select “Create Outlines“, save fonts, re-save your artwork file, and then submit us. Otherwise, you can also open your file in Photoshop, select “Flatten the Layers”, re-save your artwork file, and then send us.
We request you avoid submitting your font’s separately from your file because we don’t want that any problem create in our printing process.

We highly recommend you to save all the images properly. Our graphic designer works closely with you and tries to guide you properly. But you need to save your images properly and before your file reaches us it should be completed with clear images, proper font, and high quality of resolution. If you find your images are missing we ask you to resave your file so we don’t miss anything while printing. Some software like illustrator and other suchlike mostly drop the image. Therefore, you need to be careful. If you are working in Photoshop, then we suggest you save files properly before doing ok anything there.

Normally we need 300 dpi resolutions but it depends on the nature of the files. For example for big posters and banners we recommend 12000 dpi also. The sharper the resolution, the better the printing result would be. ( can be expected).

A high resolution for your image is very important. We recommend 300 dpi resolutions for your image. Dpi means dots per inch. If there are more dots per inch, it gives a clear and sharper look to the picture. Your files need to be 300 dpi if it’s not of that quality you will be unable to increase the resolution by applying other techniques like increasing the dots per inch.
