This is going to stick with you for years so make sure you get high quality printing.
Big Fish Printing Quality Assurance
Some printers will produce low resolution images because it allows them to print your job faster but you end up with grainy pixilated images. Big Fish Printing is just as excited to show off your new design as you are. It takes a little longer but the results can be the difference between antenna reception and high def TV.
Make sure your measurements are accurate.
Before you design your wrap, consider where each letter or image will be placed so you don’t end up with a window or door hinge were letters should be. We can schedule a certified 3M installer to come out on site to handle this at the same time an installation estimate is produced.
Big Fish Printing suggests only using 3M certified installers for vehicle wraps.
We will be glad to locate one in your area to work with. They have the highest standards and qualification of any installer in the U.S. ensuring you get a professional fit each and every time.
Tips when designing
Large format printing from vehicle wraps to banners are sold by the square foot. So when designing keep in mind how much room is actually needed to place your logo and image for height and width. Vector files are best because they can be enlarged without risking the image quality, unlike pdfs and photoshop files. Additionally, vector files are small in size so they can be easy to upload.
How to determine the square footage.
If your banner is 24 inches x 72 inches you will round that off to the nearest foot 2 ft x 6 ft. Note all inches will be rounded off to the next nearest foot. So if you have 2 ft x 3.8 ft we will notify you of the option to reduce 3.6 down to 3 ft or move it to 4 ft.
150-300 dpi – PDF, EPS, AI, JPG or TIFF files. If your file cannot be used, your Sales Representative will contact you with alternative options that can allow us to process your order.
