Technical Details

What size can be printed without a seam?

We can print an unseamed image up to 120″ (3.048m) wide and up to the full length of the roll. With seaming, the image size is virtually limitless.

What are the image requirements?

Artwork should be at least 100 dpi (dots per inch) at the intended scale for printing. 300 dpi or higher is recommended for the crispest quality graphics. Vector format artwork is infinitely scalable and ideal for patterns and typography.

Which file formats are accepted?

We accept files in: TIFF, JPEG, PSD, EPS, AI, Corel Draw, Freehand, Quark Xpress, InDesign, and Adobe Acrobat (PDF). Contact customer service for assistance on how to send us larger files or to inquire about other file formats.

Which fabrics are compatible?

Solid fabrics like vinyl will yield the best results for colour clarity and crisp details. Sunscreen fabrics with the smallest openness factors such as 1% and 3% also produce excellent results.

Colours show best on fabrics that are white or similar such as oyster, bone, or chalk. Printing on beige or ivory tones will yield less vivid colours. We also have the flexibility to print white ink on dark fabrics.

Please refer to the Sun Glow fabric catalogue which includes icons on each fabric swatch if the fabric is compatible with Graphic Shades. Just look for the {GS} symbol.
