Logo & Art Preparation Guidelines:

The Best Imprint Starts with a Clear, Crisp, Uniform Image:

You should expect clear, well-defined renderings of your artwork on bags, forms, and envelopes. At BankSupplies, we will do our best to print your logo and text as clear as we can, in the right size and color, right where you want it. It all starts with clear, clean, “print ready” art file from you. Please know that we can work miracles and make your image look great, but it depends on what we start with. Usually, your marketing department or your printer has a digital “file” that we can use. We will be happy to review what you provide, and we can refine and touch up your material, but the best thing is to send us hihigh-resolutionrt files. Here are our guidelines…

What Is Print Ready Art?

Print ready artwork is high contrast art that can be used without any touch up, clean up, or any further editing. The lines contained in the art should be crisp and clean with precise detail and high definition. It is ready for reproduction of company logo, illustrations and special typefaces where exact duplication is required. It is exactly as you want it on the product.

Tips For Getting Your Print Ready Art Right:

High image resolution: All photos and logo artwork should be at least 600 dpi to ensure that they print clearly. Anything lower than this may result in blurry, bit-mapped or pixelated quality. Send it to your printer to be sure you are getting the proper quality and separations. If it will not separate for you, it won’t separate for us. Note: Many times artwork will look good on your screen but images used from the web are only 72 dpi, they are not appropriate for commercial quality printing.

High Contrast Black & White Images:

No matter what color you’d like your custom print to be, the type, artwork and graphic materials should be a very high black and white (B&W) contrast. For multiple colors, the file should be color separated.

Double Check Before Sending Your Artwork:

  • Check your artwork for spelling mistakes & grammar
  • Double check the image is 600 dpi
  • Make sure size & placement is correct
  • For multiple color jobs, make sure the file color separates properly 
  • Black should be set at “Process Black” when using PMS color
  • If printing in full color the files can be sent in CMYK 
  • Include all fonts & links w/ your file

Accepted File Formats with Reservations:

Tiff or .jpg files can be accepted but the quality must be at an acceptable high resolution, if you’re not sure, send it to us and we can check for you. These files must be print ready to separate if using multiple colors.
