Vectorizing / Recreating Images

This service needs to be paid for in advance and we will be happy to give you a copy of the vector file once it is complete.

File Tips

Banner Sizes:

Exact sizes cannot be guaranteed as banners can fluctuate up to 1/2" per linear foot. Example: Finished size of a 12' (144") banner can be up to 6" short.

Printing Process

All products are printed in CMYK. If files are submitted in RGB, color shifting will take place. If a specific PMS color is needed, please let us know when you submit the order. We will do our best to meet that specified color. Click here for basic CMYK colors for printing.
