File Setup

When you are ready to put together your file there are few procedures required to make your file prepared for printing.

  1. For designing a poster it is recommended to use software such as Adobe Photoshop, Adobe Illustrator, or Adobe InDesign. Powerpoint is also another software which helps with presentation poster design.
  2. An important step is to create the correct size file for your poster that you need printed. For example if your print size is 24” x 36” the file size needs to be 24” x 36” as well.
  3. The colour profile for a the file needs to be set as CMYK with file DPI being in the range of 200 DPI to 300 DPI.
  4. There is a safe margin boundary of 1/4” that is required for any size of poster being designed.
  5. Lastly It is recommended to remove any visible layer in your file. In Adobe products this can be achieved through flattening or combination of all visible layers. In Microsoft Powerpoint all layers need to be grouped.
