Proof preview - no charge
No charge for proof preview before your purchase.
Before an order is placed, our in-house graphics design staff will create a “soft proof” from the graphic file(s) that you submit. This “soft proof” should be used to visualize how your graphics will appear on the covers, banners, signs or fence screen material of your choice and to make certain that all elements of the design have been included. Also, we will also examine your file to review image quality, resolution, and sizing. If your file won't meet our quality requirements for wide-format printing, we'll discuss the options available if you would like to place an order.
Printing file requirements

Our designers will open and verify the files for color, resolution and suitability for large format output, rendering files into the proper format for output, placing the files into our output template, as well as the making and sending of electronic proofs for approval (up to 2 sets).
