Artwork Specifications

At SiteSmart our desire is to supply you with the best print quality possible. To ensure this is achievable please see information below.

File Formats

For the best print result all logos and artwork should be supplied in a vector file format. A vector file is a file created in a graphic program eg: Adobe Illustrator or InDesign and supplied as an .eps, .ai or .pdf file.

If you are having trouble achieving this, we have a graphic artist available to assist you with your artwork. Please just mention that you require artwork assist in your enquiry and we will call to discuss your requirements alternatively please have a look at our artwork assist options.  Artwork Assist


  • Artboard sizes must be set at 10% of the full print size. For example, a 1.6m high x 50m long banner should be set up at 160mm x 5000mm.
  • On certain files we require 20mm bleed top & bottom, we will advise you if required.
  • Please only supply one artboard per file.

Hem & Eyelet Guidelines
