File Type

Our preferred file type is .pdf, but we also accept .png and .jpg. We no longer accept PowerPoint files.

If you would like a file printed at a size different to the inherent file dimensions, be sure that your file and the printed size you want have the same aspect ratio. We don't want to accidently crop or warp your image in fitting the dimensions you requested.
