Custom Large Format Prints | Setting up Files
Custom Large format prints which are larger than A0 do not need the artwork to be at actual size. For Instance if the physical or finished size of the print is 2m x 1m, then we can create a document which is a 1/2 or 1/4 the size, which would be 500mm x 250mm @ 300dpi – 600dpi. If you crearte the artwork file at 100% scale which would be 2m x 1m in photoshop or illustrator then the file would be too large to send through to us or email etc. Large format prints are scaled up with our high end RIP ( Raster Image Processor ) so even if the file is a 1/2 or 1/4 size, the print will still be very sharp and high quality. The most important thing to remember is that if you do the artwork at 1/4 scale then set the resolution to 600dpi, if you do the the artwork at 1/2 scale then set the resolution to 300dpi.
