How To Prepare Images For Printing

Introduction

Learning how to prepare images for printing is time well spent as poorly formatted images will not look crisp and clear once printed.   Please also name your images so that we know where they are intended to be placed within a design.

Image Sizing

Images must be at least 300 dpi and large enough to fit the space they will occupy on the printed item.  We are able to format images for you, however we cannot ‘perform miracles’ on tiny, low resolution images that you want to be made big enough.  Unless the image is in Vector format.

For example, many manufacturers supply their logos as a vector file, and these will have the file extension .eps rather than .jpg etc.

Online Tool

If you need to crop any parts out of an image that you do not want to appear on the printed item, then please do that first.   To help with image cropping, sizing and resolution you can use the online tool ipiccy.com   We can work with the following file types:  

  • .jpg
  • .png
  • .gif if not animated
  • .eps
