Frequently Asked Questions

How large can I have my boards?

All of our products can be printed up to 8x4ft or 2438 x 1219mm with foamex having the option of being 3000x2000mm and DiBond being 4000x2000mm. Boards larger then this would be split. i.e. a foamex board 5000x1000mm would be split into 2x 2500x1000mm boards.

We also recommend that foam board is not printed larger then A1 as they can easily become damaged at larger sizes. If large sizes are required we recommend Gator board.

What colours can be printed on our boards?

Our printers print using the standard CMYK colour space. Although we accept artwork produced in RGB the colours will be converted into CMYK before printing. This can lead to colour shift.

If you require colours to be matched or have a required PANTONE colour please contact our team before ordering on 01562 865444.

We also offer a range of vinyl's that can be plotted and mounted to boards for additional colours outside of the standard CMYK colour range. These include most PANTONES and metallic and brushed aluminium finishes. If this is required again please contact our team for a quote and to place your order.

Are the materials flame retardant?

All our materials are fire rated for your reassurance.

How much is delivery?

We can deliver anywhere in the UK mainland. If the order is over Ā£50 + VAT it is normally free delivery but for larger boards the delivery cost is calculated at the checkout. For deliveries outside of the UK mainland please contact us before ordering.

Can you install my boards?

What are our artwork requirements

If possible please keep all elements of your artwork 150dpi or higher. If this is not possible you can reduce this to 75dpi but graphics will appear soft from close up. In the case that artwork is supplied in a resolution lower than the printed graphics will look very soft or even pixelated. We will notify you if this is the case.

Please supply all artwork in CMYK. We will convert the colour profiles to CMYK if needed. However this may result in a colour shift in the final print.
