Artwork Guidelines

FOR ALL BRANDSTAND™ AMERICA PRODUCTS

FILE FORMAT REQUIREMENTS

BrandStand™ America, prefers high resolution Flattened Tiff Files. Please flatten the file and export as a tiff from your design software. In addition, we do not accept any single files over 1gb. Also, please include a low resolution “screen shot” or flattened .jpg proof for content verification.

If you are not able to generate a High Quality Flattened Tiff, we do accept the following software file formats.

High Quality Print Ready PDF Convert text to outlines, embed all images

Photoshop .PSD Include all layers, paths, channels, links and fonts.

Illustrator .AI Convert text to outlines, include all linked images (do not embed images).

RESOLUTION

We achieve the best results from your artwork, when your image resolution is above 75 DPI at final print size (full size).

COLOR

All colors MUST be defined in CMYK. If you find that you have created your artwork in RGB mode, and need to convert from RGB to CMYK, please carefully proof your colors prior to submission.

Pantone Spot Colors may be requested; however, exact color matches may not always be possible. Reference printouts will be considered for layout only, not as actual color reference. If a color layout cannot be sent, include a .jpg, .pdf (screen optimized) or screen shot file. Clearly mark filename as “proof”. For black use (C 40, M 40, Y 40, K 100).

FILE TRANSFER

All files sent by ftp MUST be compressed (.sit, .rar, or .zip). Your files may be uploaded via our file upload service at: https://www.sendthisfile.com/f.jsp?id=A5UzuwMxxPmq9BrqKr4h0lz4

PROOFING

Proof prints, if required, are approx. 11″ x 17″

Please allow for additional production time when proofs are required. Final order delivery will be delayed by the time required to ship and confirm proofs.

TURNAROUND TIME

Turn around time for most 1-5 prints is 5-7 days, plus shipping. Please contact your sales representative for an exact schedule of your order.
