Artwork Requirements


Our UPLOAD ARTWORK section is meticulously designed to ensure that your customized trade show display captivates audiences with vibrancy and clarity. To achieve this goal, it is essential to adhere to the following recommended artwork guidelines, allowing us to produce the sharpest, most visually striking graphic prints for you and your brand.

For additional guidance on the UPLOAD ARTWORK section, please consult the step-by-step guides available.




Artwork templates for our trade show displays can be found in .eps and .pdf formats on relevant product pages or the Graphic Templates page. These formats ensure the production of high-resolution images that result in clear, vibrant graphics. While we prefer the mentioned file types, the online editor accepts the following raster and vector image file formats:

  • Encapsulated PostScript file (*.eps)
  • Adobe Acrobat document (*.pdf)
  • Adobe Photoshop CS6 image (*.psd)
  • Adobe Illustrator CS6 artwork (*.ai)
  • TIFF image (*.tif, *.tiff)
  • JPEG image (*.jpg, *.jpeg)


All final print-ready graphic files should be flattened to a single layer and built at 150 DPI (Dots Per Inch) in CMYK mode, with all guidelines and template layers removed.

The maximum file size per graphic file is 350 MB. Files exceeding this limit will not be accepted. If your graphic file is too large, please refer to our Artwork Compression guide for instructions on compressing it to an acceptable size.

For Pantone color matching services, elements in your file must be created with the specified Pantone color. Provide the Pantone color number(s) upon uploading your artwork to ensure accurate color matching. We limit color matching to two (2) color call-outs—refer to the section below for Pantone color match requirements.


It is advisable to embed all images and outline all text to ensure nothing drops out or changes during file transfer.

Our preferred file type is an 8-bit flattened .tiff file at 150 DPI in CMYK mode, built to the dimensions of the product’s respective template.

Avoid including any bleeds in your layout, particularly for graphics designed in Adobe Illustrator.

Design your artwork to the “Overall Graphic Layout Size” of the template, keeping essential text and logos in the safe viewable areas. Proofs are generated from the submitted artwork, and it’s crucial to avoid surprises like unintentional wrapping to the back.


For an accurate color match, your artwork should be properly built with Pantone colors in the desired areas. We match only 100% solid Pantone colors from the Pantone FORMULA GUIDE Solid-Coated (details below). Gradient, image-based, or percentage Pantone color matching is not supported.

If you request a Pantone match without the correct Pantone colors in your artwork, we may ask you to waive matching or request corrected artwork with the appropriate Pantone colors.
