Artwork Preparation & Design Help
  • QWhat file types are recommended for artwork uploads?  

    Be sure to convert all fonts to outlines or curves before sending the file. Please set the size of the proof in proportion to the exact size of the custom banner's order. There's no need to include bleeds in the proof, unless it is a part of the graphic. All text should be at least two inches from the edge of the banner's grommets. Acceptable formats include:

    • EPS (Encapsulated Post Script)
    • AI (Adobe Illustrator)
    • PDF (Adobe Reader PDF)
    • PSD (Adobe Photoshop)
    • JPEG (High Resolution JPEG)
    • TIFF (High Resolution TIFF)

    Depending on the resolution and pixels, PSD, JPEG, TIFF files gets blurry when enlarged. Thumbnail JPGs or GIFs cannot be used for large prints. If submitting these files please follow these guidelines.

    • 100% scale (full size output) at 100 dpi
    • 50% scale at 200 dpi or higher
    • 25% scale at 300 dpi or higher
    • 10% scale at 600-1200 dpi

    Vector: Line art is scalable to any size, it never loses resolution and the image stays clean and crisp. Vector files can be submitted in any size, in proportion to your banner's size

  • QOnce my reprint has been approved, can I change the artwork?  

    All reprints must duplicate what was originally printed.

  • QHow many colors can each banner include?  

    BannerBuzz does not have a color limit on its custom banners, allowing you to choose as many photos or graphics as you want on your displays.

  • QCan BannerBuzz print on both sides of the banner?  

    We cannot print on both sides of one vinyl banner, but our two-sided banners are made with two banners attached together. This prevents either print from showing through the material while providing twice the durability.

  • QDo you print height by width (H x W) or width by height (W x H)?  

    Bannerbuzz always measures width by height (W x H). When you select a size on the website, width is always the first dimension, not height. Make sure it matches with your file size.

  • QCan I change my artwork once it has been approved and is in production?  

    Once your artwork has been approved it will go straight to production and no changes can be made.

  • QDoes BannerBuzz make vertical print banners?  

    Yes we do.

  • QCan I see a design proof / preview before paying?  

    Check the “proof request” option on the order page and select the “pay later” method at check out. Our designers will email the finalized proof within 24 hours.

  • QWhat if I don't like the proof of the banner?  

    Our design team will work with you until we create a banner that satisfies you. If we cannot come to an agreement, you can expect to see a full refund within 24 hours.

  • QWhat if the colors on the custom banner don't come out the way I expected?  

    Printers at BannerBuzz are calibrated to print colors accurately to match the order, but in cases that they do not, we cannot be held responsible. The appearance of the thumbnail could be different on our screens and equipment compared to yours. We will not issue refunds or accept returns due to color, depth or tone. We address each of these situations on a case-by-case basis.

  • QWhat does it mean by "Instant preview for this file type not available"?  

    For certain file types like PDF, DOC, DOCX, EPS, CDR, AI, PSD, TIF, TIFF, PPT, BMP, SVG, our system is not able to generate an instant proof for review but we have your file and our pre-press department will review your file for size and quality (resolution) before sending it to the production. They will contact you if the file is not good for printing. If a proof is requested, you will receive an email proof (even if the file is good) within 24 hours and we will only process the order after you review and approve the proof.

  • QWhat printer resolution do you use?  

    Starting from 360 dpi to 1440 dpi

    All of our banners include grommets every three to four feet apart—per industry standards. If your banner needs to have grommets placed at specific points, please explain in the "special instructions" space.

  • QDo the banners have slits for the wind?  

    Our vinyl banners do not come with wind slits, but this option can be arranged for an additional charge. We also have a collection of mesh banners, which are made with loosely woven vinyl that can withstand heavy winds.

  • QAre banners waterproof? How long will they last?  

    Yes our Vinyl Banners are waterproof and weather proof. Generally our Banners last three to five years

  • Q I am hanging my custom banner over the street between two poles. What do you recommend to make sure it hangs properly?  

    Utilizing flexible bungee cords will ensure that the banner will hang in the proper areas. We recommend taking the signage down if the area experiences heavy winds

  • QWhat is the difference between 13 oz vinyl material and 15 oz?  

    Banners made of 15 oz vinyl utilize a heavier amount of vinyl. This makes banners more durable while adding life to the display. We recommend this option for outdoor custom banners
