Artwork/delivery FAQ

What files can I upload?

We recommend the following file types:

  • Press Ready PDF
  • High Quality PDF
  • PDF/X
  • EPS
  • TIFF
  • JPEG

For the best results, produce your artwork at full print size to the dimensions you require, and ensure all fonts and imagery are outlined and embedded.

How do I send my files?

Use our upload artwork tool when creating your order. The upload preview may appear distorted if the file colour mode is CMYK or has no background. Don't worry, we'll receive the original file just fine.

My file is extremely large, what should I do?

Produce or save your artwork at half size (50%) which will reduce the size of the file, and we’ll upscale it when we receive it. Please note, this may reduce the final print quality of your artwork. Alternatively, send your artwork to info@sales@scaffoldbanners.com or via WeTransfer or Dropbox.

I don't have artwork, can you design it for me?

Absolutely. Whether you are a small business, a well-known brand, or an individual celebrating a birthday - our in-house design team can exceed your expectations. Simply select one of our design packages when creating your order and provide us with a detailed brief. Proofs will be sent to you via email for your approval before we start any printing.

What colour format does my artwork need to be?

As we print in CMYK (Cyan, Magenta, Yellow, Black) ideally all artwork should be supplied this way. If you are unable to do this we can do it for you. Please be aware that files converted from RGB to CMYK may alter the colour composition significantly.

When working in CMYK for printed media, a mix of all colours (75/68/67/90) produces the blackest black you can get. Although 0/0/0/100 (100% Key) may appear black on your RGB screen, it is not the best black you can achieve and may appear washed out or even grey.

Please use the image shown here for reference:

Whilst every effort is made to ensure colours match the files provided, different materials may produce slightly different colours once printed due to finishes and textures.

Do you print Pantone?

We do not currently offer Pantone printing services. Files provided with any Pantone references will be converted to the closest matching CMYK values.

Do you need bleed and crop marks?

No, just your artwork to size is fine. We'll make the final preparations to your file here.

What DPI must my artwork be?

For the best results, we recommend vector images or bitmap images 300dpi or higher.
