Helpful Tips:

Please do not try to drag and drop a folder. Due to permissions you are only allowed to upload files. You may drag and drop multiple files at once, but NO folders. Make sure your exhibiting company name and show name are used to label the file.

File Size

Files cannot exceed 500 MB.  If your file is larger than 500 MB, please contact customerservice@arataexpo.com for suggestions on how to decrease your file size.

File Types

Digital files (logos, photos, finished layouts, etc.) should be saved or exported from your design application to PDF, EPS, or TIFF with a minimum resolution of 300dpi at 50% of the final desired production size. The higher the resolution provided, the better the results.

JPEG’s are less desirable, but can be accepted if the resolution is 300 dpi or higher. Placed images are to be embedded rather than linked. If files are linked, be sure to send along the linked files.

Do not submit InDesign files (.indd), Word (.doc), PowerPoint (ppt.), and GIF files, or any file formatted for or taken from a website. Web graphics are not suited for large format printing. This is a very common error and should be avoided.

Fonts

All fonts should be converted to outlines or paths. Send font files if there is an anticipation of any changes so additions can be made to the provided art.

Proofing

A clean hardcopy proof and a PDF proof should be sent along with the print files for reference. Files provided without proofs will be printed exactly as provided. Any re-prints necessary due to proofs not being provided are done at additional cost to the client.
