How much is it to design my own mat?
Actually there is no additional charge to design your own mat if we receive the artwork preformatted and ready to submit. Adjustments such as collage art, or change fonts, colors, design, etc., are included in the price. Up to three revisions are also included in the price.
What type of artwork is required?
Artwork files should be received in a large format. For best print quality, .JPG, .PDF, .EPS, or .TIF files are preferred. For optimal picture quality, files should have a viable resolution when scaled to their full size of at least 72 ppi, 24" x 72". Typically files will be at least 4-6 mega pixels or larger to reproduce quality imagery. If your images are smaller in size, collaging them into one larger image may provide better results.
