What Are Grommets and Why Do I Need Them?
Grommets, Grommets and More Grommets
Many of our contractor clients have asked: "what are grommets?". Hence, we decided grommets should be a topic added to our toolbox articles.
Working in signage every day, we understand just how complex the signage and printing industry may seem. So, we will start sharing some of this sign knowledge in a toolbox series. We will tackle signage related topics and help you understand them completely, so you will be prepared better to purchase the sign you need.
What Font To Use For My Sign & Prints
When designing a brochure, reporting or signing, one of your first choices is the type of font to use. And while it may seem irrelevant, the choice of font will be necessary. The right font will allow your customer to find your message quickly; the wrong font may keep it from reading your sign at all.
How Do I Choose the Right Colour?
Do you have a really cool colour in mind but aren’t exactly sure how to describe it to us? We’ve got a solution to help you decide! When choosing a specific colour, ideally we would be asking you for a Pantone Solid Coated Colour, also known as a PMS Colour. Pick a perfect Pantone colour from our Pantone chart.
Why do artwork files need to be set up in CMYK and not RGB?
One might think that a red logo will print in red but this isn't exactly correct. The red logo you see on your screen might not print right if the file isn't set up correctly. To make sure all graphics are printed correctly files need to be in CMYK and not RGB.
Would you like to know more? We will explain the differences between RGB and CMYK and how to set up your artwork file in CMYK in a few simple steps.
What Is A Vector File And Why Do I Need One?
To produce your signage it is important that we get your artwork in the correct format so we can print it clearly and make sure it looks amazing!
Just because you can see an image clearly on your screen does not mean it can be printed any bigger than you see it without it becoming blurry and pixelated. We ask for your artwork and logo files to be in a vector format, this is so that we can enlarge it and it remains crisp and clear.
