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.
How are Proofs printed?
This product is printed on Noritsu, Durst, and Chromira printers using a traditional photographic process involving chemistry and paper with silver halide. The image is projected onto the paper and exposed during the printing process using lasers and chemistry, giving you a final product with a traditional photographic feel and depth. There is no ink involved in this printing process.
Is there a bleed?
Yes! Photographic Prints will incur a small overall bleed during the printing process. To create Photographic Prints, we project the image onto the paper within the printer and this includes a 3% enlargement so that the image fulfills the paper it is being projected onto. To prevent any issues as a result of this bleed, we do suggest that you make sure all important elements of your image within ⅛" of the outside edges.
Can Proof prints 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.
Will Proofs have backprinting?
Backprinting is part of every Photographic Print produced and cannot be removed or customized. Backprinting will always include the Item Number, Studio Name, File Name, Year, and Copyright.
How do you receive prints in order?
Production will do their best to produce and deliver Proofs in the order that they are submitted through ROES, however adding services like Texture will effectively cancel this service and Proofs will be delivered in a less structured order.
Can Proofs be bound?
Spiral binding involves punching holes down one side of a print and coiling a black or white plastic spiral to bind the prints together.
Where can you order Proofs?
You can order this product in the ProDPI ROES program in the Express Proofs catalog.
