CMYK
A colour model used specifically for printing, based on the four colours of ink used:
· C = Cyan
· M = Magenta
· Y = Yellow
· K = Key (Black)
It is possible in programs like Adobe Photoshop and Illustrator to switch colour models between CMYK and RGB. When sending us any type of file for us to print, please make sure it is in CMYK colour mode and not in RGB.
Dye Sublimation Printing
The advanced printing process we use to print the graphics on all of our fabric display products. During this process, specialized inks are turned directly from a solid into a gaseous state. When cooled, the inks become part of the material itself, creating a smooth, permanent print.

End Caps
These are the optional side coverings for our FabricMural products. They cap the sides of the display unit, covering the framework and providing 270 degrees of advertising surface.

EPS
Encapsulated PostScript, or EPS, is a graphics file format. An EPS file is a PostScript file which satisfies additional restrictions. These restrictions are intended to make it easier for software to embed an EPS file within another PostScript document.
FTP
The File Transfer Protocol (FTP) is a software standard for transferring computer files between machines with widely different operating systems.
Launch our Client FTP Upload Center.
PDF
Portable Document Format (PDF) is a file format developed by Adobe Systems for representing documents in a manner that is independent of the original application software, hardware, and operating system used to create those documents. Adobe Acrobat Reader is recommended to open PDF documents.
Resolution
As in image resolution — meaning how much detail an image can hold, mostly referring to digital images. Higher resolution means more image detail. In image editing programs, the most common convention of describing resolution is in pixels per inch (PPI) or dots per inch (DPI). Our lowest preferred image resolution for printing is 100 pixels/inch.
Rush Fee
The fee charged for forcing a job to be completed in a timeframe shorter than the standard turnaround time.
.sit
The file extension given to anything that has been compressed using the StuffIt compression system, used mainly on Macintosh computers.

Sublimation
In printing, sublimation is the transference of printed images to a synthetic substrate by the application of heat.

Teflon
Teflon is the brand name of a polymer compound used for many different applications but is mostly known for its durability.
TIFF
Tagged Image File Format (TIFF) is a raster file format for digital images for use with PostScript printing. TIFF has become the de facto standard graphics format for high color depth (32-bit) graphics, is widely used in image manipulation applications such as Photoshop, DTP, and scanning, and can be directly manipulated by PostScript.
Velcro
Velcro is a brand name of fabric hook-and-loop fasteners used for connecting objects.
Working Fee
The fee charged to a client if the artwork files they supply to us aren't created to proper specifications. We then must correct or finish the file before sending it to print. Fees charged are dependent on the time required to fix the error(s).
.zip
The ZIP file format is a popular data compression and archival format. The compressed file is given the extension ".zip". When transferring large files to us by FTP, we recommend that you compress your files to ZIP or SIT format.
