This banner stand is great for outdoor use because it is completely waterproof and can be held down with water or sand against the wind.
We use a 15oz Blockout material which means it is thicker than the standard banner material. It also has a blockout layer in the middle that keeps the sun from shining through the back of your material and distorting your graphic.
Convert text to curves is an important step because we may not have the font that you were working with.
Flatten the image to make sure no elements move around.
PDF and EPS are the most common file type and most accepted. If you have the option, Publish to PDF at Acrobat 4 instead of the latest version of Acrobat.
We recommend sending us the exact file size that you want to print (23.5"x72"). Remember that proportions go by percentage not by inches.
The higher the better, especially if you are enlarging your designs. Try for anything 150x150 dpi up to 300x300 dpi at exact size.
Our printer uses a CMYK printing system, so saving in CMYK would provide the best color match for your project.
For most products we will not require a bleed, but on some products, such as business cards, we will need an 1/8" bleed all the way around.
All shipping options are available in the cart (before you need to input any information about billing). Our site automatically calculates your shipping charges based on your zip code.
We ship via UPS and FedEx Monday through Friday with the exception of holidays. (FedEx ground home delivers on Sat instead of Monday)
Shipping days are counted by weekdays (no weekends or holidays) and the day count starts on the day following the ship day. So if you need a check by Monday and you order on Friday, you will need to choose "Overnight" delivery. We can assist you on choosing what shipping option would be right for you to make it to meet your deadline. Use the chat on the left hand side of the page to ask us for advice.
Ground shipping is the cheapest shipping that you can choose. Some of our items are large and when you use anything but ground ship the costs go way up because they are then measured by dimensional weight instead of the actual weight by UPS.
Below is a chart for UPS and FedEx Ground shipping. 3 Day - Next Day - 2nd Day options also available in cart.
FedEx Ground to a HOME that would be scheduled for monday delivery based on week days will be delivered on Sat.
All customers will receive a tracking number once their check has shipped.
Once your check is shipped you will be able to follow your big check at ups.com with the tracking number provided in an e-mail. If you have not received a tracking number confirmation by 5:00pm on the day you expect to ship, then please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org
