  • Help - Quick!!!!

    What is the smallest image I could get away with to stretch to a 17' x 10' banner, bearing in mind that the image needs to fill the entire expanse - NOT USED TO DEALING WITH LARGE FORMAT RESIZING!!!

    Thanks in advance - as quick as you can would be much appreciated.

    My guess is at least 5 people will tell you to call your printer and ask.

        It's really hard to give you a one-off answer since we don't know much about what this banner will be used for, what it will be printed on, etc. My guess is that it won't be viewed up close, so you can probably cut down on the resolution considerably. My suggestion is to get the largest image possible, and use "bicubic smoother" to upsample. At full size, 150 - 200 dpi should be okay, but again, to get the best result possible call your printer and find out what their preferred specs are. If you can't get in touch with whoever is printing it, ask the client to give you their contact information or to have the printer contact you to discuss specs.

          soooo you can get on the internet but you can't call the printer? it'd be a lot quicker to call than waiting on here for an answer that might not be right for that printer.

            What's your viewing distance?

            Without knowing the machine it's being printed on, we can't give you an answer. Only the printer can do that.

            If you are really jammed. Figure 35dpi to 50dpi AT FINAL SIZE for a 17' x 10' graphic viewed at 10-15 feet or more. You do the math backwards.

            You really shouldn't take on a large format project for the first time without a print vendor to walk you through the process. Pass on the job. Or find out who the printer is.

            17x10 is fine to say but how much bleed are you going to need. Do you really need an 18 x 11 foot image?

              Of course, your printer may tell you 100dpi.
              Who knows.

                  I think the problem is that Rehab isn't sure who is going to be the printer on this.

                    That would be a problem.

                      It happens more than not, in my experience. Generally the quoting for the printer is usually the last thing that happens. Even though you would think with how much we talk about "Talk to the Printer", I see it where a lot of the time you find yourself working on a project and no clue who is printing.
