Layout requirements

Технические требования

Layout size should be 1: 1

For cut-to-size orders, the layout must be made with a 2 mm allowance on each side.
For kits, it is necessary to load layouts in an archive (each layout is submitted as a separate file).

Significant information should be located at least 5 mm from the edge of the finished product.
Files should not contain cut marks, alignment crosses, scales and any other elements.


For banners with eyelets - all important elements should be no closer than 5 cm from the edge of the finished product.
For banners with pockets - all important elements should be no closer than 10 cm from the edge of the finished product.
For orders with a stencil, a cutting line must be provided along the perimeter of the layout, a comment is required.


Resolution for printing, by quality:
720dpi: 75-120 px / inch;
1080dpi: 100-120 px / inch;
