Whether you're a novice or a professional when it comes to artwork, we're here to give you the guidance needed to make sure your end result is print perfect.

I don't have print ready artwork, can you design it for me?

If you have the elements, such as text, logos, and text, we can take these and create a print ready design layout for you at a small additional cost. We have a number of affordable set price packages available to suit any requirements. Many of our products have a design service as an additional extra for instant ordering. For products that don't please contact us to discuss your brief. Visit our in-house design service page to find out more.

I will be supplying print ready artwork.

Many of our print products have the option to upload your artwork on the product page. If that option is not available, you will receive an email shortly after placing your order with instructions on how to send your artwork files.

In order to avoid any delays in production, please follow our guidelines below to make sure your artwork is ready to go. If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to get in touch to talk to one of our team.

Resolution

Generally, 100 dpi is a good standard for images with the document size set at full size of the large format printed product. For example, if you want to order a 40"×60" print, the image size should be 4000 pixels (40 x 100) by 6000 pixels (60 x 100) at 100 dpi.

100% scale at 100 dpi
50% scale at 200 dpi
25% scale at 400 dpi
10% scale at 1000 dpi

If any dimension of the product is greater than 5000mm, please produce the artwork to scale. For very large artwork such as hoarding walls, 10% scale can be utilised at 1000dpi for images, or use vectors as these will scale perfectly.

Colours - Please Supply All Colours As CMYK+

Computer screens use RGB, while printers use CMYK. You may ask why this matters? Most colours created in RGB can be closely matched in CMYK but some cannot. If colours are critical we always suggest ordering a printed proof.

Other things you can do to check your colours:

- Use a calibrated monitor (colours vary from monitor to monitor)
- Use a printed CMYK colour swatch to check your colours
- Don't check samples from a desktop printer
- Order a printed proof from us (this may cause an increase in lead time)

Fonts

For large format print, we recommend that the minimum font site is 8pt (point size).

Our preferred file format for print-ready artwork is a PDF, please make sure you embed any fonts for perfect results. With other file formats please ensure fonts used in your design are converted to outlines and include all fonts and images used when you send your files to us.

Do You Need A Proof?

If you are providing print ready artwork, we do not provide a proof as standard, which enables us to get your print to you quicker. If you require a proof please get in touch with us to discuss. We do provide a free technical file check as standard, as outlined below.

We can provide a machine print proof for the extra cost of £25 plus delivery. This involves printing an A3 proof on the machine that will be used to produce your final print. This will give you an accurate representation of colour. If you are using our design service, we do send out a PDF proof, which is an accurate representation of content and positioning. It is not an exact indicator of the final colour due to the limitations of screens.

Quoted delivery dates for print are from approval of artwork, so please bear in mind that requesting a proof may delay the delivery date of your product.

Delivery

After you have placed your order a provisional despatch and delivery date will be sent to you via email.

Our standard delivery time for printed products is 2-5 working days after artwork has been approved for print. If you have a specific deadline, please contact us to ensure we can meet this. Please check that your artwork meets the guidelines above to prevent any delays in approval.

Free Artwork Check

Before we go to print, we will carry out a free technical check on your artwork. If there are any issues, we will contact you to let you know what needs to be changed.

Colour Matching

Our printers and media are of the highest standard and are carefully calibrated to produce vibrant, full colour prints. The process involves CMYK printing and this means it is not always possible to match Pantone colours, but they will be converted to the nearest CMYK equivalent.

If exact colour matching is critical, please send us a physical copy of other printed material, such as a letterhead or brochure, and we will check your file prior to printing. If we cannot achieve a reasonable match we will call you to discuss.

Please send any physical examples to: Discount Displays, 31-35 Wortley Road, Croydon, Surrey, CRO 3EB.

What are your eco-friendly banners made of?
Our banners are PVC free & constructed from 56% polyester scrim & 44% PA water-based coating

Can they be recycled?
Yes, they can are ROHS, REACH & LCA approved and meet EN-71, 33P standards.

Are the inks bad for the environment?
Some companies use solvent-based inks that are bad for the environment but we have opted for eco-friendly inks for our recyclable banner printing. The HP Latex inks we use are UL ECOLOGO, GREENGUARD Children & Schools Certified, and use Eco Mark-Certified ink cartridges that meet stringent environmental standards.

Why use eco-friendly banner material?
If you care about the environment then our eco banner is the solution. Although the Eco-friendly banner material is more expensive than standard PVC, when coupled with our water-based latex inks it is the greenest banner solution you can get. Our green banner material is PVC free, REACH and LCA approved to reduce the impact on the environment.

How long will my eco-friendly printed banner last?
Banners are intended for temporary signage. How long they last depend on where and how they are used. Banners used indoors will last many years. Outdoors the limiting factor will be how the banner is hung and the wind it is exposed to life span show vary between a few months and a few years.

Can you ship worldwide?
Yes, we can. Please email your requirements for a quotation.

Is the material flame retardant?
Yes. Our Eco Banner 300 is flame retardant to B1 specification

How should I look after my PVC banner?
Make sure that they do not flap against awnings, walls, or sharp edges. The banner should be taken down in high wind conditions. Generally, wind speeds of over 30mph can be damaging to your banner.

Are your banner inks suitable for indoor use as well?
We use eco-friendly latex inks which odourless making them ideal for indoor banners. Solvent banners can give off an unpleasant smell in confined areas.

Can you design the banner for me?
You can if you want, but we also offer competitively priced design packages. Find out more about our design packages here

Banner sizes?
One of the benefits of banners is that there are few size restrictions. Our printer can print full-colour banners in one piece up to 2.5m wide by 50m long! For wider PVC banners such as building wraps and hoardings, pieces of banner material can be welded together to create a seamless graphic, so there is pretty much no limit on banner size. Our most popular banner sizes are 10' x 3' and 8' x 2'.

Banner design tips?
Keep it simple. Often people only have seconds to see your banner. Use block letter fonts for important information rather than fancy scripts. Use dark colours on a light background or light colours on a dark background. More information on the best colour combinations can be found  Banner colour hints and tips

How will my banner be finished?
The most common finish is turned edges and eyelets. This gives you a strong banner that is easy to hang with cable ties or bungees. We also offer this banner with straight cut edges. This option can be nailed, screwed or attached with plastic eyelets.

How should I hang my banner?
Banners are popular because they are so versatile and easy to hang. Check out our handy banner hanging guide for more information - Banner Guide

Banner reading distances?
As a rough guide if you multiply the height of letters on your banner by 10 that would give you optimum viewing distance in feet. So a 12" letter would be fine at 120". The maximum readable distance would be about 500 feet.
