Some products such as tablecloths and wind flags have very specific requirements so we usually create these in-house, otherwise we can provide you with a template and specific print set-up instructions.

We strongly recommend that you use a reputable graphic designer to create your artwork as it is imperative that print files are set-up correctly. Brisbane Custom Signs & Printing accepts no responsibility for errors, omissions or production problems that may arise due to files not meeting the above specifications.
