Please be sure to embed ALL links and convert ALL text to outlines in your submitted artwork. We will onlybe able to accept PDF files for processing. Other file types will not be guaranteed to process correctly and will be charged a fee to process. We DO NOT accept files built in InDesign, Quark Xpress, Corel Draw or MS Office, etc. Artwork MUST be sized to fit our provided templates. DO NOT include anything you do not wish to print in your print-ready files. This includes crop marks, registration lines, guides or slugs. These will appear when printed. AVOID using transparencies as the effects may not translate properly when file is processed.
GUIDELINES FOR ORDERS SUBMITTED TO SALES OR CUSTOMER SUPPORT
We offer DIGITAL and PRINTED proofs for colour and image quality. Choose between reduced or magnified proofs depending on your needs.
It is your responsibility to proof read all text and examine the proof throughly before approving. We cannot accept responsibility for typos or errors found after approval.
If your artwork requires any EDITING, TYPESETTING or LAYOUT there will be a minimum charge of $65/hr. Please provide detailed instructions and high quality assets (including images, layout and design mockups) to make this process more efficient. If your order contains a large order of graphics with individual artwork or requires multiple revisions, there will be a processing charge.
We print in CMYK, so we cannot match PANTONES precisely. We will do our best to come as close as possible. Other pantone series such as uncoated, fluorescent and metallic colours cannot be matched. Please specify the SOLID COATED PANTONE number to your sales representative and also include it in your file as an applied swatch.
To achieve the darkest black, please use these specific CMYK values: 40/40/40/100
As a general rule, FABRIC requires 2 INCHES on all sides, RIGID substrates 1/4 INCH on all sides and BANNER stands 6 INCHES on the bottom with 0.5” on the top. This is to ensure that no elements are lost during finishing or installation. Please refer to templates for how this will affect your finished artwork.
Templates for each of our products are available online at www.theexhibitorshandbook.ca. You can also request custom templates from your sales representative.
