Due to the individual characteristics of monitors, the colors on your screen may vary from the final
product. If a specific Pantone color is needed, it must be provided to VG when placing your
order & prior to approving the art files so we can match it to the best of our ability. In addition, we
suggest you request a printed sample. There is a charge for this service, however, it will
guarantee your satisfaction on the final output. If colors are not specified, VG cannot be held
responsible for discrepancies with color output.
Resolution for Wide Format Printing:
Files should be 150 dpi at 100% scale. Scale dpi according to the scale of the file. For example, if
the file is at 50% scale, the dpi should be 300. Files can be reduced to 72-100 dpi at 100% scale
for larger projects, such as bus wraps and oversized banners. Files with a lower resolution than
specified may be pixelated/blurry when printed. Files provided at a higher resolution than
specified above will be reduced to the appropriate dpi in the preflight process.
