Preparing Your File for Print

  • These are the general file preparation specs. If you are building something that is very large in size or using software other than Photoshop or Illustrator, please contact us for more information about file preparation.

    To ensure the highest quality, the following digital file guidelines are recommended for billboard production:

    Adobe Photoshop: 300 dpi (min) CMYK (.tif, eps, psd with layers if possible). Scale at 1/4 inch = 1 foot or 1/2 inch = 1 foot.

    Adobe Illustrator: 300 dpi (min) CMYK, .ai, .eps, or high res .pdf, convert all types to outline, link or provide any support files. Please scale at 1 inch = 1 foot.

    For high resolution products, please call for assistance.

    Toll Free: 877-903-9400 or Local: 214-904-9400.

    Art can be uploaded through the "send artwork" page or delivered to us on a disk. Files smaller than 10 MB can be emailed to art@xldigital.com.

    Note for Colors: A hard copy sample or PMS colors (solid to process) will always result in a better color match.

Working with XL Digital is a seamless and efficient experience in all the best ways. It’s as though I have a large format printer as part of our company - I send the work, the work gets done to perfection and is delivered, usually well ahead of the deadline. I’ve never considered a vendor to be irreplaceable but these folks are exactly that.
