What is Image Quality how to I make my images print as best as possible.
Answers

  • Image quality is part art, part science. Generally, low resolution website pictures look terrible on signs. Web pages need to load quickly, so people visiting a page don't leave the organization's website. If high definition pictures are on the page, the page will load slowly. Thus, nearly every internet picture you find on a storefront or news page is low definition. It might look good at 2' x 2', but will look terrible at 12' tall. Before uploading a picture, zoom in. Is it grainy? Does the edge look crisp? If not sure, email us the image, let us know how big you want it, and we will let you know if it will look good enough to be persuasive. Sometimes, for a small fee, we can use commercial software to improve the quality. Files that are 100 kilobytes (kb) or less, even up to 1000 kb, are often too low quality to use on all but the smallest signs or decals.

    Google Images has the ability to display only high definition pictures- play with the settings. However, that does not mean you are legally allowed to use the image. Make sure before you use it. Often, people are honored to have someone use their picture, and say yes, if you ask nicely.

    Modern camera phones take excellent images if you choose the highest quality setting. Likewise, tablets can take great pictures, usable for signage products.

  • Available Colors for printing depends upon the printing method you choose. Silk Screen signs and decals have standard colors that do not incur any additional fees. If you desire a specific silk screen color, called a PMS color, we advise you call in to discuss your job. We have color matching experts. There will be an additional charge, to hand mix ink colors, for this service. This is the only way to guarantee Brand Guidelines and Specific colors are achieved. If the product you choose is digitally printed, we can likewise print with calibrated equipment to achieve specific CMYK values. Again, a phone call is recommended.

  • At this time, we do not offer exact Pantone (PMS) color matching for our digitally printed signs. We can however offer PMS approximation. This means we will do our best to get as close as possible to your requested color(s). If you are ordering screen printed signs or shirts, we can certainly provide Pantone PMS color matching. Additional fees may apply. Call for details.

  • There are many theories about this subject, but here are a few rules of thumb to follow when choosing your banner size. A common rule of thumb for optimal viewing distance is 1” of letter height for every 10 feet of viewing distance. For example, if you have 8” letters, the maximum optimal viewing distance is 80 feet. However, your text is legible from beyond this distance. Typically, it can be viewed up to 3 times the optimal distance. For our previous example, those same 8” letters are technically legible from 240 feet. This distance will vary based on many factors including but not limited to environment, person viewing, letter style, color, lighting, etc.

    If you keep your message simple, clear and easy to read, you are likely to get the best results. We are available to give advice if you need it. Just be ready to answer some basic questions like viewing distance, etc. We are here to help you make the most of your purchase!

  • Since we are based in Tampa, Florida, we know from experience that the sun’s UV rays can take their toll on printed ink. Even with direct sun exposure, our banners can easily last for 2-3 years, even longer if not in direct sunlight. If your banner is hung inside, it will last for many years.

  • Banners, in general, do not fare well in high winds. They become very similar to sails and catch wind very easily. It is recommended that they be temporarily taken down in the event of a storm. For banners being installed in open areas or high off the ground, we recommend using mesh banners since they allow for air to pass through.

  • Grommets are metal punched eyelets that allow you to hang your banner at multiple points. Grommets are used with our standard 13oz vinyl banner material. Power tabs are used in the same way but they are made of a thin, clear plastic and have a hole punched in them to allow you to hang your banner. Because we do not hem our 18oz vinyl banner material, the thin plastic tabs are stuck to both sides of the banner and add a similar reinforcement as the hem.

  • We can print a banner up to 10’ in the smaller dimension. Although our material comes on a 164’ roll, we suggest not printing a single banner more than 10’ x 50’ due to overall weight when finished. For example, a 10’ x 50’ banner weighs over 60 lbs. You can easily string together multiple banners to achieve the look of a larger one.

  • Pole pockets are a fold, typically on the top or bottom of a banner that allows for a pole or rod to be inserted inside it. The pole pockets are not sealed, they are open ended on both sides, which allows you to easily remove the poles whenever you like. A great example of when to use pole pockets is for a Hollywood-style step & repeat backdrop banner for an event. The pole pockets allow for easy mounting on an optional step & repeat banner stand.

  • Our standard vinyl banners are printed on 13oz material, hemmed with double sided tape and finished with nickel grommets every 2’-3’. Your banner can be customized in many ways including adding pole pockets, additional grommets, and wind slits. Our 18oz double sided banners do not get a hem and our step and repeat banners come with pole pockets standard.

  • Our banners have an expected outdoor life of 2-3 years under most conditions. Areas with extreme sun exposure and high winds will reduce the life expectancy of both the print and banner material itself. For areas exposed to medium/high winds, we recommend wind slits or switching to a mesh banner material. The only exception is our canvas banner material which is only meant to be used indoors.

  • No, the banners do not come supplied with poles and we do not offer them for sale as an add-on. You can visit your local hardware store and purchase poles or rods made from PVC, metal or wood. We recommend cutting them a couple inches short of the overall width of the banner so you do not see them sticking out the sides.

  • There is not a set recommended frequency to clean your banner, just use your best judgement. Most banners placed indoors will not require the same frequency of cleaning compared to a banner placed outdoors on a fence.
