What is print ready artwork

Print ready artwork is artwork that has been prepared for printing. It is a digital file containing all the necessary information to produce a printed piece, such as a poster, brochure, or magazine. The artwork must be in the correct format and resolution to ensure that the printed piece looks as good as possible. Print ready files are required by all printing companies, like The Media Mafia, to ensure that your designs are printed correctly.

What Makes Artwork Print Ready?

There are several factors that make artwork print ready. First, the artwork must be in the correct format. This means it must be saved as a PDF, EPS, or TIFF file. Additionally, the resolution of the artwork must be at least 300 dpi (dots per inch) for best results. This ensures that when the artwork is printed, it will look sharp and clear. Finally, all fonts used in the artwork must be embedded in the file or converted to outlines so they can be printed correctly. Converting a font to an outline means that you outline the text making them shapes and not text elements that can be edited.

How to Create Print Ready Artwork

Creating print ready artwork requires some knowledge of graphic design software such as Adobe Photoshop or Illustrator. When creating your design, make sure you are working with high-resolution images and fonts that are either embedded in your file or converted to outlines so they can be printed correctly. Additionally, you should save your file as a PDF or EPS file for best results when printing. Don’t have a graphic designer on hand?
