    Why use the Tradeshow Stores.

Graphic Specifications

Graphic Service Fees

The Tradeshow Stores provides graphic design services, and we prepare an estimated quote for the ENTIRE PROJECT, so you always know exactly what your cost will be.
Estimated design time will be provided to you prior to start of your project.
The following are what we have done for our customer’s pop up displays as examples.

Photoshop Users

Call 330.243.0651 for templates.

Whether you use our templates or you create your own document,
please make sure the dimension of your file is the exact size of the finished size.

Image Resolution

Photos and graphics need to be 125 DPI at full size

In Photoshop, you can go to IMAGE ->  IMAGE SIZE to find out your file resolution.

Determine Image Quality from Source

Good Quality:
High resolution / high quality stock photography
High resolution / high quality scanner

Low Quality:
Screen capture of video frame
Low resolution / low quality stock photography
Image lifted off a web-page

Why 125 DPI?

Since your banner will be a large format print, you don’t need to prepare your file in 300 DPI which is usually used for smaller format print.

If you are uncertain of the quality of your images, please call us at 330.243.0651 or email us at info@thetradeshowstores.com

Color Mode

Your file has to be in CMYK mode.
IMAGE -> MODE -> CMYK

Saving

When you are done with the design, flatten all the layers then save as TIF.

If you need our graphic designers to modify your art work, don’t flatten layers but convert all text to shapes.
(Please call for estimated time.)
LAYER -> TYPE -> CONVERT TO SHAPE

You are almost done!

Before you upload the file(s) to us, view your graphic in actual pixel view. VIEW -> ACTUAL PIXEL
Review the entire graphic carefully, especially your logo and photos if any, to make sure it looks good to you.
Because what you see in the actual pixel view is very close to what you will get on your banner(s).

If you are satisfied with what you see, please UPLOAD FILES using info@thetradeshowstores.com as the email address you send files to and include your contact and order information.

Saving

If you need our graphic designers to modify your art work, send us your original Illustrator file(s).
(Please call for estimated time.)

You are almost done!

Before you upload the file(s) to us, open the EPS file you just saved.
