Printing even easier!

You have an idea for a print job, but you’re not sure what options are available  Here you have it all in one place.  To make it easy, there is one standard size.  You have 4 choices for finishing:

poster paper – ideal for short term use, like a special event, and/or for indoors.  Easy to roll up and take with you.

banner – can be used indoors or outdoors.  It will not tear and can be rolled.  Grommets in the corners making hanging it up easy.

corrugated plastic – a rigid sign that can be used inside or outside.  Corrugated plastic has “flutes” running through it, like cardboard, that make the surface bumpy.  4mm thick.

smooth PVC – a rigid sign (ok, a bit bendy) for indoor or outdoor use.  PVC has a smooth surface and signs mounted on it look great.

Our print file artwork support service is also available for this product if you do not have a computer file suitable for printing or need help with the artwork.

Super Easy Sign for Any Occasion

We pulled 4 different products – a poster, a banner, a coroplast sign, and a PVC sign – all into one easy sign product.  In other words, you don’t have to search the site for different print or finishing options, or guess what size to use.

Popular, no waste, size for signage

We picked the most popular size and presentations for you.  This is as easy as it gets.  The sign size is 24″ x 32′ and available in 4 different formats.  Compare prices easily by changing the media option.

Since our rigid substrates come in 48″ x 96″ sheets, this size is both common and produces no waste.  One sheet makes 6 signs.

We put all the main choices in one place for you.

Your choice of easy sign media/substrate

Make your sign from one of 4 material choices, two soft and two rigid.  The softer materials happen to be thinner than the rigid ones.

Soft signs

Signs printed on poster paper and banner can easily be rolled up for storage. Poster paper is ideal for indoor and short term use for a one day event, or for a wall decoration.  It will not do well outdoors.  A printed banner is suitable for indoors or outdoors.

Rigid signs

Corrugated plastic (coroplast), and PVC signs do flex, but are hard signs that stay rigid.  They are lightweight and  water resistant.  The ridges, or flutes, that run through coroplast are visible on the sign surface, giving it slightly indented stripes across the sign. PVC is smooth.

Easy to compare, easy to order

Choose your style, upload your artwork (or pictures you want to use), tell us how we can help with the artwork, and that’s it.

Don’t forget to leave some comments when you check out to let us know how you want it to look, or send us an email with your idea.  It’s that easy.

Looking for pictures and help for your easy sign artwork?

Try Unsplash for exceptionally beautiful high resolution images that are free to use.  Any image you select from the site should work well on a sign this size.

If you are adding text, it is important to make the fonts large enough to be seen from a distance.  Use this font sizing guide to help you ensure that your sign will be seen.  Remember to also use high contrast between the text and background colour so your message stands out.

Get print-ready artwork without the headaches

Every print job must start with a useable digital, print ready file.  Here is a list of the most common issues with artwork that is not print-ready:
  • It has no bleed – your background image/colour should extend beyond the size of the finished product by 1/8″ all the way around
  • Document is sized improperly – an 8.5″ x 11″ file cannot be easily used for a half letter or 4″ x 6″ postcard, or for a 12″ x 18″ poster
  • Images used in the artwork are pixelated – all images should be 300 dpi
  • Entire file is low resolution – your file should be saved at 300 dpi.  Many free online programs do not export appropriate resolution.
  • Colours are set to RGB instead of CMYK – in this case, the colours that are printed may not be what you are expecting
  • Contrast between background and fonts is inadequate – dark fonts do not show up against a dark background.  What works on a backlit monitor will not work in print
  • Fonts are too small – it is wise to print a version of your artwork on a home printer to see the actual size of the fonts before ordering.  Again, it may look great on your monitor at 500 times magnification, but not work when printed.
  • Fonts are not embedded or converted to outlines – this can cause fonts to change in the processing of the file, changing your entire layout and design
  • Content has errors
  • Content is too close to the edge of the design – allow a “safe zone” to accommodate small variations in the printing, cutting, and finishing
  • Crop marks are improperly placed – this is the same of not having bleeds
  • You submit multiple files – a double sided flyer file should be in one .pdf file, 2 pages, not 2 files
  • File is in the wrong format – pdf files should be submitted.  While we allow other formats, they have to be converted before they can be processed.   In many cases, that is quite difficult as the file can be changed by the process.  In other cases, the file is not compatible with our software or hardware (for example, none of our printers can print .png files!  They all have to be converted to a printable format first).
  • The artwork is an idea, something you had printed somewhere else, written on a piece of paper, or a bunch of image and text files that need to be assembled – there is lots of work to do to get the file you need.

Experience has taught us that most customers, and sadly, many professional graphic designers, do not understand how to create print ready files. In addition, many of the free products available for you to design for yourself, do not output print ready files.  In some cases, your file can be easily corrected, using the wide variety of (expensive and sometimes difficult to use) software that we keep on hand at the Laser Sharp shop.  If you are stuck, we can help.  Use Service Tiers table to select the support level suitable for your project.

Some Fine Print

  • The prices shown are charge PER PRODUCT ORDER.  In some cases, design elements created for one print job may be used in others; if so, you may be able to select Advanced artwork for the first product and Standard for another if elements created for the Advanced project are reused in the Standard one.
  • The price for the tier includes any or all of the checked elements.  In other words, if you only want to get files prepared to be sent to you in different formats, you need to select the Advanced option.
  • You need to use the the red “upload your print files” button to upload your pictures and support documents.  There is a text box for you to provide details.  The more detail you give, the more likely you are to get a fast turn around on your support.
  • You are responsible for securing the legal rights to use any images, texts, or logos.
  • You are also responsible for planning the marketing strategy and goal behind your artwork.  We provide services to create digital print files, we do not develop your marketing program or create content.
  • The pricing for Advanced has a “+”.  If you expect more of the designer, like for us to find pictures for your project or to write content, you will be asked to pay more.
  • An electronic proof is included with most options.  It is CRUCIAL that you review the proof carefully with the following in mind:
    • Each support tier comes with a limited number of revisions.  Given that, when you receive your proof, take time to consider EVERY change you will want before you ask for revisions.  Any revisions requested over the limit will result in a request for further payment before they are made.
    • The colours you see on your screen and phone will not (necessarily) be an exact match to the final print.  If you are concerned about colour, it is your responsibility to request a printed (hard proof) before approving the job.
    • Any error in the content or colour mismatch is your responsibility once you give the go ahead to print.  If the designer has made an error, he/she may never know (for example, if a price or phone number is incorrect), so it is up to you to catch that before it goes to print.  There is no refund or credit given for reprints – the designer’s mistake is yours now.
    • Production WILL NOT START until your approval is received IN WRITING and in the requested manner and wording.  Don’t phone and tell us to go ahead.  Email and tell us to print the proof version sent to you (by file name) or that proof X is not approved because this specific change needs to be made (please don’t just tell us you don’t like the colour!!).
