This makes it an ideal choice for businesses looking to create eye-catching displays that will attract attention and promote their brand.

It can be easily packed into a small bag or case, and then quickly assembled on-site using a lightweight frame.

What is CMYK?

In offset printing, the standard color mode used in CMYK. CMYK, or Cyan, Magenta, Yellow & Black represent the four process colours in this mode. When you are creating your files, be sure to check the color mode as programs like Photoshop by default use RBG color, not CMYK. CMYK may look more dull on a computer screen than RGB; more noticeable in large solid color areas.

Accepted File Formats

We require industry standard formats for all uploaded files. We keep quality in mind when we print every job. We accept the following file formats: TIF – JPG – PDF – EPS – PSD. We accept CorelDraw, Pagemaker & Quark or similar files by converting them to industry standard graphic formats like JPG, TIF or PDF.

Rich Black vs 100% Black

Large black areas or fonts bigger than 36 points should use Rich Black which stops areas appearing gray. Rich Black is created with 30% Cyan, 30% Magenta, 30% Yellow, 100% Black. This setup will keep black areas looking rich and bold. For best results with regular body text, do not use Rich Black.

What is Font Outlining?

We might not have the same fonts on our systems as your computer, so when saving your files in a vector based program (Illustrator, InDesign, Quark, CorelDraw) please outline your fonts. This will convert them to a vector image, will not effect the clarity and will allow us to see the same text as you see on your screen.

I love working with Signs City! Eli and the team do an amazing job with every one of our jobs. Big, small, fast, whatever we need. I still get asked all the time where I get my banners printed - my customers love them!

Phyllis T.Brooklyn, NY

“They arrived one day earlier than I expected. Marianna sent me an email with an order proof, let me to make some minor changes, and then sent me another email with a revised proof. I inquired as to whether I need size larger in order to have the space altered. They made the necessary adjustments to meet the size I had requested rather than getting the larger sale. outstanding customer service. This is where I'll go if I ever need printing again in the future.”

These guys do very high-quality wheatpaste posters that adhere to walls easily and absorb the paste well. I have printed a lot of posters in my time and it's all about the paper; it's gotta be thin, thin, thin. I've found the perfect print partner!

“I discovered these people online and had the idea to print a sign. I must say that I was really pleased with the outcome; it was high quality and arrived in 3 days - great value! Highly recommend working with Signs City.”

Mark C.Brooklyn, NY

These guys are awesome! I can't afford to spend a lot of money, especially for my first show, so I've been on the hunt for a source to print banners and signs for a good price. After a quick google search, I came upon Signs City. I'm happy to have found this place. My coworker needed banners for our next conference as well, so I placed an order for two custom-sized banners and told him about it the following day. I will definitely place future orders from and highly recommend this business. I appreciate that you can choose between 1 or 2 day shipping and that they will estimate the time of delivery. That function is quite helpful. Thank you so much!

“We did some printing for my brother's memorial service. I was a little concerned about the quality because the photo resolution was never intended for large prints. Everything came out brilliantly; the level of detail and general caliber of the work were outstanding. Signs City provided the perfect solution for our needs, giving the stage arrangement for our celebration a larger-than-life aspect to reflect my brother's unique existence. For any future needs, I will without a doubt shop here again!”
