Frequently Asked Questions

We would like all artwork files to be supplied a high-resolution PDF or EPS file at 25% of the overall size. When you are saving the artwork, this needs to be saved as one full art board without crop and bleed. Ask 25% artwork should be supplied at 300dpi for the best print finish.
The Pantone colour match scale is an industry standard series of reference colours for use in the printing industry for litho and screen printers with specific spot colour or Pantone inks. It should guarantee you get the same colour from whichever printer you use, anywhere in the world. However, the reality is more complex as very few printers use Litho or Screen printing.

XL Displays use modern digital printing methods, utilising a full colour CMYK process with an 8 colour ink set for printing all our Pop Up Stands and Exhibition Stand products including Banner Stands, Tablecloth Logos,Twist, Centro and Exhibition Counters rather than a screen printed / spot colour method. We use the Industry leading Caldera Grand Format RIP that mixes the CMYK ink set to obtain a close match to most Pantone colours. Some are exact but others, such as bright Neon’s and vivid oranges, specific Turquoise Pantones and some Pantone greens and blues are not achievable in the gamut of CMYK printing.

We cannot guarantee a perfect match to all Pantone colours. Please also be mindful that all submitted Pantone codes should be U (Uncoated), not C (Coated). Our media (as with all exhibition displays) is matte, uncoated. Coated Pantones should only be referenced for Gloss or Satin work, such as Brochures, Leaflets and gloss prints for example.
All artwork supplied should be set as CMYK colour mode but you may have Pantone Spot Colours embedded. Our RIP is able to convert Pantone to CMYK reliably, within the restrictions of CMYK printing. If you have a specific spot colour, please advise at time of order.

If you have very precise colour matching requirement or colour critical specifications for your artwork, we can offer a hard copy proof prior to printing the finished Artwork. There will be an additional charge for this service. XL Displays print for some of the world’s leading brands under extremely tight guidelines and specification. We will work collaboratively with you or your designer to achieve the very best print and colour for your display or requirements. Please ask for our swatch match service or any advice regarding Pantone or Spot Colour matching.
All of our product artwork templates can be found on the individual product pages under the artwork specification tab. From this tab, you can download the artwork specifications and guidelines and click through to the upload your artwork page.
If you have your own print-ready artwork, please visit our upload artwork page.
Once you have uploaded your artwork, our in-house graphic design team will receive a notification to say we have received new artwork. Once this happens, our team download the files and begin checking your artwork. It is at this stage a member of our team will make contact with you to let you know we have your artwork and if there are any immediate issues we can see. We will never send any artwork to print without full confirmation from our clients.
For all printed products we will supply a PDF proof to our customers within 24 hours of receiving the artwork files. This gives our customers the opportunity to make changes to their artwork before sending it to print. We will only send artwork to print once we have received sign off and approval.
