Useful information to help you through the process of ordering this particular product. If you have any questions, feel free to contact us.
File Format and Resolution
We currently accept only JPG files. All files must be saved with an embedded RGB Colorspace, preferably sRGB. We do not recommend embedding any other color space. We do not currently accept Tiff, PSD, PDF or Raw files for production.
All products are printed at 300dpi, so in general for Photographic Prints and wall art products you can submit your largest available file, and our printers will interpolate the information. This means that if you submit a file that is 2400x3600 pixels to be printed as a 4x6" print, our printers will pull 1200x1800 pixels to create the print, as this gives you 300dpi. If you are printing that same file as a 16x24", our printers will pull the maximum amount of information available and distribute it across the print size.
Do Matted Folios have a bleed?
The Mats in Matted Folios will cover approximately ⅛" of each image on all four sides. This bleed should not be compensated for with borders, as it is designed specifically to help make sure that the image edges are covered by the mat
Can prints for Matted Image Folios be Color Corrected?
Color Correction is not available for this product, and all edits must be made to the files on a color corrected monitor before upload.
How to design for Matted Image Folios?
When selecting images for your Matted Folio it is recommended that you choose images where the important elements are at least ½" away from the outside edge.
