Knowing the proper way to design and format your poster is crucial to creating a professional looking poster design.

Customgraphix Poster Design and Print – Matte, not Gloss

We understand why some people may want to print their custom posters in semigloss but that is not always a good idea. Depending on where the poster is to be installed, the gloss can reflect too much of the light, making it incredibly difficult to read, especially from a distance or in outdoor advertising. Printing one’s Customgraphix posters will give them a professional look that presents well in almost any circumstance.



Customgraphix Poster Design and Print – The Resolution

The graphics provided for Customgraphix poster print need to be at a resolution of three hundred dpi or higher. This includes the following –

  • Illustrations
  • Graphs
  • Photos
  • Charts

This will ensure that, when the poster is printed, it comes out looking good and professional.

Customgraphix Poster Design and Print – Know the Color Models

When designing and printing Customgraphix posters, one will have to use the CMYK color model. This acronym stands for cyan, magenta, yellow, and black. One will not be able to use the RBG color model (red, green, and blue) which is the most common palette for online posters. However, even if one isn’t using the CMYK by default, switching the color models isn’t difficult at all.

Customgraphix Poster Design and Print – Choose the Right Format

When one is creating images for online use, the bitmap format is usually preferable. Unfortunately, it isn’t the best choice for Customgraphix poster printing. If one intends to have their custom poster in print looking good, they will be required to use the vector format instead. This will give their Customgraphix poster a clean and crisp look. Moreover, this format is much easier to resize should the need for it arise. One may have had the chance to notice this already, but using the bitmap format for printed posters makes them come out fuzzy and the lines end up curved and twisted.

Customgraphix Poster Design and Print – Handling the Poster

Once the poster has been delivered, one should avoid handling it too much. Customgraphix posters are to be kept in crisp condition by getting rolled up and placed in a tube that is included in the package. Another way to keep the Customgraphix posters fresh and clean is to place them in between two layers of cardboard.

Customgraphix Poster Design and Print – Use PDF

The best way to send a poster design to the printing agency is to save and email it in PDF format. This is what the experts in the industry refer to as ‘print-ready’. Most printing agencies in the States will only accept the PDF format for posters.

Customgraphix Poster Design and Print – Other Items to Be Sent

When sending the PDF of the custom poster design to Customgraphix Phoenix, Arizona, it doesn’t hurt to also include the design program file that’s been used to finish the design, just in case. Additionally, one may also include supporting documents such as text fonts and images as separate files in the email. It is also advisable to save the duplicate copies just in case something happens and the agency loses the access to the files that have been sent.
