Frequently Ask Questions

Question / Issue
Is the quality of my image good enough to print? How do I check the resolution?

Answer / Solution

When uploading an image or photo, it is important to remember that the higher the quality of the image, the better it is going to look when printed. We recommend a resolution of 300 dpi (dots per inch). Images with a resolution less than 300 dpi may look blurry or pixilated, depending on the dimensions of your signage.

If you took your image from a website on the internet, there is a high probability that it will not be of a high enough resolution, since the internet displays images at 72 dpi.

When looking at an image, and trying to decide if it is high resolution, zoom in to 100-200%. This will give you an idea of what the image will look like when blown up.
Question / Issue
What file types do you accept for upload?

Answer / Solution
When submitting your own print ready files, we primarily recommend .EPS files which are supported by most major design applications.  Some pdf and jpgs may also work.

Question / Issue
How soon can I receive my order? What is the turnaround time?

Answer / Solution

The delivery turnaround includes time for production and shipping. Production time will vary base on product type and seasonality. Printed products is 3-5 business days after you approve the proof. Embroidery is generally 2 weeks. Screen Print is 2 weeks.  Some larger custom signs may be 4-12 weeks.

Question / Issue
What are grommets? Does my banner come with grommets?

Answer / Solution

Grommets are holes which are placed in banners (and some signs) with reinforced brass or silver rings. Grommets will be placed every 2 or 3 feet in the banner for hanging convenience.

All of  our banners come with grommets free of charge, unless otherwise specified by customer. For canvas posters, banners and backdrops, please consider alternative hanging methods, such as banner stands and framing.

Question / Issue
Will your car magnets stick to all vehicles? Will they fly off on the highway?

Answer / Solution

We select the #1 brand (made in the USA) of 30mil magnets material specially made for promotional vehicle use. It will stick to any flat vehicle surface made of ferrous metal. Please be aware that it will not work on aluminum, fiberglass or plastic doors or areas of the vehicle which have had extensive body damage (corrected using putty).

Magnetic car signs work best on flat surfaces. As long as it is not placed upon a curved surface, and you follow the magnetic care instructions, you should not have to worry about the magnet falling off.

Question / Issue
What is the standard size or most popular size for car magnetic signs?

Answer / Solution
The most popular sizes for vehicle magnets are 12"x24" for most cars and could be 18"x24" for larger trucks.  For bigger vans or trailers, we can print up to 48” Height x 120” Width.

One common mistake people make in ordering their car magnets is to assume that 'one size fits all' or simply guess at the dimensions.  However, not all car doors are designed the same way.  If the door is curved or has trim, the air may flow between the car and magnet to create air pockets (which might result in sign falling off because car magnets can’t contour perfectly along the curve).

Always measure the flat metal surface area on your car door before you order.  This is strongly recommended and the best way to pick the size of your car magnets.
What is a "proof"?
After your order has been processed, it is sent to the designer who creates the image, the size requirements, materials and tools needed in order to create a proof. Once the all the information is put onto the proof, it is sent, e-mailed, or viewed by the customer in person to approve. If any changes are needed to be made, then the proof will be revised in order to meet your desired requirements before any actions take place.

Why do I need to look at a proof if I've already given you everything I need to have done?
Proofs benefit you and us as well because it prevents any mistakes or miscommunications from being processed into the order. Once all the measurements are taken down and all the information being transferred over into our hands, we only wish to double check that everything is correct. We wish to make the process as efficient as possible, so by using proofs, you are able to view your signage in a 3-D image that you can visualize and approve.

Is everything made in-house?
For best quality results, we do everything in-house. In a survey taken by our knowledgeable staff, our engineering and sign permit process allows the best work enforced by our team. Our customers can feel assured that all the work put into their signage is done by experienced electrical engineers and sign experts who check and recheck that everything is entirely flawless.  From the ordering process to installations, our work is greatly approved by each city regulations.
