Rigid Board Signs
Signs are a key way to optimise business-related projects. Our rigid boards come in a choice of 3 materials, Dibond Boards, Foamex Boards and Corrugated Plastic Boards. These durable signs can be utilised for advertising, campaigning, wall art, promotions, events, openings, real estate, amongst many other things.
Custom sizes and shapes are available! - Contact us for details.
Display boards other large format items should have a larger margin (at least 60mm) & bleed (at least 10mm) than normal, please ask us for advice if you are unsure.
Custom shapes are available for Foamex & Correx - however acute (sharp) angles should be avoided and areas that are too thinas they may snap off the finished product.
The fee for the shape does depend on size & complexity - so please ring us to advise.
Print ready artworkIs preferably
- a .pdf file
- in CMYK
- has a 3mm bleed
- at least 300dpi
PDF FileWe prefer Adobe Acrobat Portable Document Files, with fully embedded fonts, or all fonts converted to paths. Please use the 'High Quality Print' settings in your software package when creating the .pdf Other common software we can work with include Microsoft Word, Publisher, Excel, Photoshop, Illustrator, and many more. Please note! If you do not supply us an adobe .pdf there may be unexpected changes in the finished print - for this reason we always send you a proof to approve before we go to print.
CMYKArtwork should be supplied as Full Colour, Cyan Magenta Yellow and Blac(k) files, rather than RGB as colour differences can occur when converting from screen to print colours.
BleedYour artwork should have an extra border around the edge, your design may 'bleed off' into this area if it is intended to print right up-to the edge of the cut final sized page. More detailed information on bleed is available.
300dpiComputer screen "bitmap" or "raster" images are usually 72 or 96 Dots Per Inch, when these are printed they tend to be very small, or 'pixelated', for print images a much higher detail, or resolution, image is required, usually 300 Dots Per Inch (dpi) or even higher.
If your file is a Vector format file, then resolution is not an issue.
