Order prints

Ready to complete your design experience by having it printed out? Take note of these important ordering stages before sending your design off to production.

Design Proof


Before an artwork gets printed, it’s always best to proof your file ensuring all elements in the design appear as expected. This stage involves checking the resolution of images as well as the placement of text and other elements in the design.

Here’s how to go about this process:

  1. Click the Order prints button and select your product specifications, then click the Begin Order button.

  2. The image resolution checker will appear. Images that fill your entire design must be at least 1024 pixels x 768 pixels. Other images should be as high resolution as possible.

  3. Check the bleed area of your design. Make sure your design extends all the way to the pink bleed line to prevent unwanted white lines or gaps appearing in your final printed product.If your design is in place, click Next.

  4. Check the safe area of your design. Make sure important elements are inside the pink safe area line as they may be cut off when printed. If important elements are safe, click Next.
