also is .JPG file good enough.after all i want this to look right.not all blocky and jaggy.anyone have any idea on this problem.please please post.i dont feel right about spending around $20 then print out a crappy looking marque.also what kind of paper do i ask for when i go to kinkos.anybody printed please post about this matter.what paper you used and which is the right paper.many thanks to anyone who helps :)

From your dimensions it looks like your marquee is about 1" high and 3" wide.  I would suggest making the image only 300 dpi.

you are was 300 dpi at the first place..the size is which i bring to kinkos? .JPG or .PSP

please please....thanks... ;)

When I had mine printed at Kinkos I brought in a jpeg file.

Also, I printed mine on backlit stock instead of paper.

This material is like a thin piece of opaque plastic that is designed to have a light behind it.

A bit pricey depending on size....I think I paid like $28.00 + tax for a marquee that was 27 x 8 but looks wonderful with a flourescent behind it with a single sheet (ie: no color fade). I sandwiched this between two pieces of lexan.

I would suggest that you take a piece of paper the size of what you are planning to print and do a test mount to ensure that the overlap of the marquee holder does not cover up the top/bottom edges of your marquee image. I did not think about the degree that this would overlap first time out of the shoot and ended up having to resize and reprint mine.



you printed yours twice???....

man $28 is kinda pricy but whats you site?..i wanted to take a look..and thanks for the advice..i will follow..
