Large Format Prints Printing Online
Online printing allows you to make large format prints of your photos more easily and cheaply than ever before. However, you need to plan and possibly edit your photos to get the best possible results in your banner or poster printing. Here are a few tips to keep in mind when you are taking photos for large format printing. For online banner or poster printing, you will need a digital photo. If you taking a picture with a digital camera, ensure that you are using the largest picture size and highest quality setting that the camera offers. Many digital cameras have an option for high resolution. The higher the resolution, the clearer the image will appear after banner printing. Generally, a resolution between 240 and 360 dpi is recommended. If you can choose the exact resolution setting, 300 dpi is best, resulting in images free of both blur and graininess. If possible, set the photo file format to TIFF, also known as RAW. It is the best file type for large format printing. If you are using an already printed photo from either a standard or digital camera, then you need to create a digital file of the image. To do this, scan the image. Set the scan resolution to 300 dpi or more if you can. If you are using an existing digital photo for your poster or banner printing, check the resolution of the image in your photo editing program. If it is not an optimal resolution, you should be able to change the dpi to 300 through the "image size" or similar option. Finally, you need to choose a paper size for your online printing. Many poster and banner sizes are considered large format, from 8.5 by 14 inches to much larger. You can set your photo to the correct size using an image layout program such as Adobe InDesign, or you can have the online printing company resize it for you. Depending on the program, cropping the image may or may not be required. After the photo is resized, it should be saved in a high quality image format such as TIFF. JPEG and other compressed file formats are not desirable for large format printing, as the compression results in loss of image details and clarity. If you follow these tips, you should end up with a high-quality image for your online banner or poster printing!

"Bleed" is a printing term used to indicate the area that will be trimmed off after the job is printed and cut down to the finished size. Since the bleed extends 1/8" all around the card, your document set-up should be 1/4" taller (1/8" on top and 1/8" on the bottom) and 1/4" wider (1/8" on the left and 1/8" on the right) than the finished size of the card. The chart below indicates what the document set-up should be for a particular finished size.
Be aware that text or images too close to the TRIM LINE (shown in SOLID PINK) will be cut off. Make sure that your background image extends 1/8" past the TRIM LINE.
In the above illustration, the background image needs to extend to the BLUE LINE. Be sure to extend the background image to bleed or the white of the paper may show in the final cut down product. The chart above indicates what the document set-up should be for a particular finished size

"They turned out even better than I had imagined. The colorful print on the quality paper stock really catches the eye and show cases our logo so well. The font was also exactly as uploaded and no cut-off design. Not to mention the shipping was efficient and none of my large format prints arrived damaged. So impressed and I will definitely be back to order another batch for our autumn sale."
