Learn the basics of preparing your print files for ordering at WHCC.
Prepare your work for printing by saving high-quality JPEG files with an embedded color profile.
- Export files tagged with an RGB Color Profile—P3, Adobe RGB, and sRGB are all great options.
- We recommend saving your files at a JPEG quality of 10 or higher in Photoshop, 90% in Lightroom, or the equivalent in your editing tool.
- Most products are printed at 300 DPI, and we’ll automatically resize your files for printing. For more precise control, you can resize your files and apply any sharpening before submitting.
For engraving, your final design should be solid black on a white background. The black areas will be engraved, and white will display the surface of the product. Text or simpler designs tend to produce the best results.
Files used for engraving should be at least 1200 PPI. We recommend using our sizing templates to prepare your final file.
It is important to use our free sizing templates for select products for the best printing and engraving results. If your desired product requires a custom design or features a portion of your image wrapping around an edge, then there is likely a sizing template available.
This includes Cards & Stationery products, Image Blocks, Albums & Books, Boxes, Cases, Image Folios, Printed DVDs, Image Cubes, and USB Drives.
