Can I Supply my Own Image to be Printed?
Yes you can but remember that a high resolution image will be required to ensure a good quality finish. Low resolution images pixelate when they are blown up, resulting in a loss of clarity. As a rule of thumb a jpeg image should be at least 1.5mb to 3mb in size. A simple test is to blow the image up to 400% on screen. See our artwork preparation guide for more info. On confirmation of your order an artwork proof will be provided for signature, prior to going into manufacture.
