Third, upload your artwork files. The link to the upload file page is located on the menu bar at the very top of any page of the website.

Explain the graphic template guidelines.
The graphic template contains all the details needed for a graphic designer to design a graphic to fit the product you ordered. The template will usually describe the acceptable file formats, font requirements, and the dimensions for the bleed area, finished size and safe area. The outermost line, the bleed line represents the trim line. The bleed area goes all the way to the edge of the art board. This area is not visible when the display is set up. Bleeding ensures that there are not unprinted areas. This is where the graphic is physically cut. The background color/image should extend into this area. The finished size line is the area of art that is visible after the product is finished. The safe area is the place where all your artwork is located.    Back to Top
What file formats are acceptable?
• Adobe PhotoShop CS5 or below (PSD, TIFF)
• Adobe Illustrator CS5 or below (AI, EPS)
• Adobe Acrobat PDF
Photoshop and Illustrator files are preferred, as they are more suitable applications for large format printing.
All files will print in the CMYK format. Please provide the layered native files if color matching to a specific Pantone color.
What is the recommended image resolution?
For best results, we recommend setting files up at 100 – 150 dpi (dots per inch) at full print size. Graphics with dpi’s greater than 150 will create unnecessarily large file sizes without any visible gain in print quality.    Back to Top
How do I upload my artwork files?
On the top menu bar of any page of the Showfire Dispalys website there is a link titled, “Upload Artwork”. On the upload page you have two options. You can upload to Dropbox or you can upload by FTP.
How soon will I receive my graphic proofs?
After you have uploaded your artwork, the turnaround time to receive digital proofs is usually 1-2 business days. You will be required to give written approval that the proofs are acceptable before printing begins.
