GUIDELINES FOR BASIC SIGNS (1-3 COLORS):

____________________________________________________________

You should save your file as an Adobe Illustrator .ai or .eps file.  This is the most compatible type of artwork.

All text should be converted to outlines.  This will eliminate font issues. If you are unable to convert to outlines you must include the font with your font as a PC true type font.

 

 

GUIDELINES FOR FULL COLOR PRINTED SIGNS:

Files can be huge! A full 4-color fleet graphic on the side of a 48 foot trailer is well over 1 gigabyte. When setting up your file, use the following guidelines:

FLEET GRAPHICS:

72 DPI @ 100% actual size    OR    300 DPI @ 1/4 of the actual size

 

BANNERS, POP, ANYTHING VISABLE AT CLOSE RANGE(5ft or less):
