Already have your artwork?
Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org for your user name and password to access our FTP site to upload your own files: ftp://ftp.aratafiles.com. You can also submit files via any free cloud storage service (Dropbox, WeTransfer, etc.).
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.
Files cannot exceed 500 MB. If your file is larger than 500 MB, please contact email@example.com for suggestions on how to decrease your file size.
Digital files (logos, photos, finished layouts, etc.) should be saved or exported from your design application with a maximum resolution of 100dpi at 100% full scale. If submitting at 50% scale maximum resolution is 200dpi and at 25% scale maximum resolution is 300 dpi. Placed images are to be embedded and not linked. We accept the following files:
- PDF (preferred)
- TIFF with LZW complression
We do not accept 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.
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.
A clean digital 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.
