Prevent blurry or pixilated images by using high resolution  images/pictures. Make your raster files (JPG, TIFF) at least 100 – 150 DPI at full printable size.

4B. Resolution


Your graphic file should be at 100% of size. Resolution should be set at least at 100-120 DPI at 100%. If you are designing at half size, please ensure your resolution is at least 200-240 DPI.

5A. Bleeds


Bleeds are in most of our templates to determine areas that may not be seen or that will be cropped. We recommend you identify the bleed areas before designing your graphics. This will help you prevent placing important text and images in the bleed areas.
