Instructions / Specifications
1. We recommend using Adobe PHOTOSHOP and submitting
your design as a 100 dpi cmyk TIF file with LZW (lossless) compression.
We also support Adobe ILLUSTRATOR files.
Formats we accept: LZW TIFF (recommend), JPEG, PSD (CS6 or lower), AI (CS6
or lower). Please contact us if you want to submit a different file format.
2. Design at FULL SIZE using the panel dimensions in
our Eclipse templates available for download below. Create a single design
for all your panels together (not individually), unless you are trying to have a color change at a panel
seam (i.e. the adjacent panels are different colors and the color break is
at the panel seam).
3. Design in CMYK. Do not use spot or Pantone colors.
We do not provide color matching. Our printed CMYK colors should closely match your designed colors, but exact
matching is not guaranteed. Our printed colors are generally about
95% accurate. If you are concerned about color, you can order a printed
proof, which is additional. The printed proof we send you will
show how our CMYK printer will print your design. We
print files as is and do not provide color adjusting or matching
services. However, after you receive your printed proof, you are welcome
to adjust your design cmyk values based on the printed proof and order a new printed proof.
4. Photoshop files should be set up at 100dpi (at
5. We recommend that placed images be 75dpi if
possible. Image resolutions over 100dpi are unnecessary. Avoid using low
resolution images. Read more about low resolution images and
pixelation problems here. You are responsible for deciding if your
image quality (resolution, compression, focus, etc) are ok for your
requirements. We can provide input if any of your images seem low-resolution
and/or pixelated, but you must decide if they are sufficient for your
expectations and requirements.
6. Avoid placing small text or critical information on the
panel seams. Try not to have the panel seams (breaks) run through letters or
logos if at all possible.
7. Remove unnecessary or hidden layers. Provide only what is
to be printed.
8. For Adobe Photoshop CS6 (or lower version)
* File should be saved as a TIFF in CMYK with LZW compression and ICC
profiles checked on with no extra Alpha channels.
* To help get a smoother gradient without banding, add noise (from 1 to
9. For Adobe Illustrator CS6 (or lower version) file:
* All fonts should be converted to outlines (Type > Create Outlines).
* All raster images should be embedded and not linked.
* If any filters or special effects are applied (e.g., blurs or gradient
mesh) the file must be rasterized in Photoshop and saved as a TIFF for final
* To help get a smoother gradient without banding, the gradient should be
created in Photoshop with noise added (from 1 to 3), saved as a TIFF, then
brought back to Illustrator and combined with the rest of the artwork.
10. Design file dimensions (full scale):
For Adobe Photoshop, create a new file at 100dpi with the following
dimensions and guides (check the pdf templates below to confirm the
