File formatting

For fine art giclée printing, we recommend using standard image file formats such as Tiff, PSD & JPG, but accept many other common formats such as PDF, Raw, EPS, etc. For other printing, we work with the full suite of Adobe layout software. To get the best results with any of our printing technologies, your file resolution should be in the neighborhood of 300 dpi/ppi and not below 150 dpi/ppi. We prefer the color space Adobe RGB (1998) for files created in RGB and for a CMYK color workflow we use GRACoL2013.
