Below are some frequently discussed topics regarding graphic files:

1. Graphic File Submission

  1. Submit your graphic artwork AFTER you place your order, and notify us when you submit the file.
  2. Please only send relevant files for the job. Compress all of your files into one and include your company’s name in the file name. If you are a designer submitting artwork for your client, please include your client’s company name in the file name.
  3. We will do our best to review your files and notify you when there is a problem. However, it is your responsibility to ensure that your artwork is free of grammatical/graphic or design errors. UNLESS YOU EXPRESSLY NOTIFY US THAT THE FILE IS NOT FINAL WHEN YOU UPLOAD OR WE NEED TO EDIT YOUR ARTWORK, WE WILL PRINT YOUR DISPLAY AS-IS WITHOUT SENDING YOU A PROOF FOR APPROVAL.
  4. You may send us files using one of the following methods. If you are uploading the file to the FTP site, please make sure no special characters (such as !, @, #, $, %, ^, &, *,) or space in the file name.

    1. Upload to FTP Site  via (Login: ftp_graphics, password: tradeshow). Once you are on the FTP site, click "Page" on your browser, then "Open FTP Site in Windows Explorer" to view FTP site in Windows Explorer, then drag or send your files to this folder.
    2. Upload to FTP Site  via No login or password needed.
    3. Send on CD/DVD. Please make sure to write your company’s name, your name and phone number on your CD/DVD and mail them in a properly protected case to: Trade Show Displays, Inc., 2401 Highway 13, W., Burnsville, MN 55337.
    4. Email to us at:, if your file is smaller than 2MB.

2. Other Graphic File Format

We require files be submitted in flattened TIF format, 100dpi resolution, CMYK, and saved at actual size.

If you need us to edit your files (additional graphic service charge may apply), please include a layered format file editable using Adobe Photoshop or Illustrator. Acceptable files include Adobe Photoshop (.tif or .psd), Illustrator (.eps), and pdf files editable in Illustrator. All linked files must be included along with font files usable on PC computers (alternatively, you can outline all fonts). We will do our best to meet your requests and will send you a proof for approval before production. If you chose not to review the proof (e.g., due to lack of time), we will not accept complaints resulting from our editing.

3. Color Match

Generally, we will be very close to a match without any special adjustments. If you need an exact color match, you must indicate in writing the Pantone values for all critical colors. Designation in the graphic file is not sufficient notice. A layered version of the graphic file must be included along with the flattened TIF file. There may be additional graphic service charges due to the additional adjustment and test printing required for such color match. Because we use CMYK printers to create your graphics, 100% reproduction of defined colors is not possible.
