• They are quality obsessed to the point of employing complicated algorithms verifying each and every submitted Displate so that the final product looks great. It's only accepted JPG/JPEG files. They recommend generating them from a lossless original (PSD or TIFF file) and then saving the file as a highest-quality JPEG with an embedded colour profile.
• Please DO NOT manually increase the pixel dimensions of your images by resampling in Photoshop to match their requirements. Each Displate is verified for such action and won't get past the validation.
• If you want a specific colour profile, please embed this in your file. Otherwise the artwork will be printed as it is. In Photoshop, you can embed a colour profile from the "Image" tab, and then "Convert To Profile." You will need to make the decision on which colour profile is appropriate for your images, but the most popular profiles are sRGB and AdobeRGB (1998).
• If your original artwork is not digital, we recommend taking HD quality digital photos or scanning your original artwork by professionals or someone who knows how to do it. You may also use a film camera and have the photos scanned.
Before you upload your artwork, be sure it is ready. Quality & colour correction, cleaning and cropping should all be completed prior to submitting. Zoom in to your picture and imagine it in someone's home. Then ask yourself: is the quality enough?
Common reasons for images not passing validation:
The quality / logos / watermark issues are responsible for 80% of rejections.
• Quality is just not enough for a great print.
• Pixels have been increased in size to match the short side requirement (2900px).
• Image far outside the recommended 1.4:1 ratio.
• Number of DPI less than 300.
• Logo or watermark added.
• Margin less than 2 cm / 0,80 inches.
• Multiple uploads of the same image with slight changed colour palette or tiny detail.
• The whole content of the design not included in one uploaded file.
This competition starts on May 28th and ends on June 28th.
They are quality obsessed to the point of employing complicated algorithms verifying each and every submitted Displate so that the final product looks great.
