SENDING PRINT-READY FILES
Meaning: We hit the print button. No sizing, no changes, everything ready to print AS-IS
We are using the Creative Cloud version of ILLUSTRATOR / PHOTOSHOP for VEHICLE WRAPS
These are the only applications you should be designing files in for VEHICLE WRAPS
If you are designing signs, banners or any other non-vehicle item, you can export to a PDF from your program of choice**
** Note - we might not be able to modify your files if there's any errors or changes needed for this option
Specify what scale you created your artwork at. Guessing not advised.
Each side of the vehicle should be a separate file. Example: DriverSide is one file, Rear is one file, PassSide is one file, etc...
Embed all linked images. They should be CMYK and at LEAST 100 DPI at FULL size.
Create all vehicle wrap artwork in CMYK mode, NOT RGB and NOT PMS Pantone colors.
Make sure all fonts are converted to outlines.
Please add bleed to all sides of the vehicle. At least 6"...seems like a lot? Yes it is.
Specify lamination: Luster or Matte (Banners do not require lamination).
To Waive or Not to Waive That is the question.
Why do we charge for a color proof? We don't provide you with just a print out from some laser copier. We set up a proof separately. We provide you an oversized laminated print right off the machine your full size project will be printed off of. We ship them to you in a timely manner. If there is specialty vinyl we include samples. This ensures that what you sign off on is what you will get. It's an insurance policy for both parties and we think it's important. We don't hide this cost in your pricing because we feel it's not right to bury costs. You should know exactly what you are paying for and make that decision to say YEA or NAY. If you do not want the color proof, we will ask that you sign a simple waiver to acknowledge that we offered it to you.
