PHOTOS & LOGOS
Photo images and logos need to be at least 4" wide at 300 dpi. We CANNOT produce a quality product from website images, business cards or computer printouts. For senior or graduation banners, please make sure that your pictures are at least 5mb in size. The higher the pixel range, the better quality of image we can reproduce. As a rule of thumb, if it looks blurry, fuzzy, dull or grainy on your end, it will on our end too. Please also make sure when using a photo that you have permission to reproduce that photo. Think Signs & Graphics assumes permission of reproduction from the person providing the photo. When taking photos for senior banners, if the athlete is wearing their lighter color uniform, then shoot on a dark solid background. If the athlete is wearing their dark uniform, then shoot on a light solid background. Do not shoot on multi-colored brick, landscaping or any other busy background unless that's the background you choose for your banners.
While we do our best to make sure that your athlete is celebrated in his/her best light, the price of our senior banners is low, and does not allow for much photo editing. We are happy to remove a blemish or brighten a smile, but color toning, removing or adding objects in photos, or any other major photo editing is not included in the cost of your order. We will be happy to assess a design charge if you choose to use a photo that requires a lot of editing. There is a $10 per picture change out if your banner is designed and you choose to replace the photo.
In order to achieve color accuracy in your final prints, please include a color accurate printout for us to match, and/or a specific Pantone color if applicable. While our files are largely meant for viewing in outdoor applications, we will strive to to hit your color as closely as possible.
