Vector Files

Vector files (such as AI and EPS) are editable in Illustrator and allow us to print graphics clearly at any size. Images containing text that are saved as a JPG, PNG or GIF are not editable and will lack quality if printed larger than the file itself.

The quality of your presentation speaks volumes about your business. Vector files are essential to creating a quality product and will not compromise your vision. Help us, help you!

Pantone Colors

The Pantone Colour Matching System is a standardized colour reproduction system. By standardizing the colours, different manufacturers in different locations can all refer to the Pantone system to make sure colours match without direct contact with one another.

Find Your Font

A typeface is a design for a set of characters, and a font is the combination of typeface and other qualities, such as size, pitch, and spacing. For example, Times Roman is a typeface that defines the shape of each character. Within Times Roman, however, there are many fonts to choose from — different sizes, italic, bold, and so on. (The term font is often used incorrectly as a synonym for typeface.)

The height of characters in a font is measured in points, each point being approximately 1/72 inch. The width is measured by pitch, which refers to how many characters can fit in an inch. Common pitch values are 10 and 12. A font is said to be fixed pitch if every character has the same width. If the widths vary depending on the shape of the character, it is called a proportional font.

Fire Resistant vs. Fire Retardant

Fire resistant fabric is made from materials that are inherently nonflammable — the materials have flame resistance built into their chemical structures. Fabrics made with these types of materials are designed to prevent the spread of fire and will not melt or drip when in close proximity to a flame. Because flame resistant fabrics are not usually made from 100% flame resistant materials, they will burn, but will do so very, very slowly and are often self-extinguishing.

Flame retardant fabrics are chemically treated to be slow burning or self-extinguishing when exposed to an open flame. These fabrics can be made from any material, but they must be treated with special chemicals to qualify as flame retardant.

The biggest difference between flame resistant and flame retardant fabrics lies in how each is made. Without a special chemical application, a fabric will not qualify as flame retardant. Similarly, without being made of certain nonflammable fibers, a fabric will not quality as fire resistant.

When shopping for fire-safe fabrics, more often than not you will come across flame retardant textiles. These are cheaper and easier to produce than flame resistant fabrics and are often made of treated polyester or cotton.

PU Coating

PU coated fabric is made up of a synthetic woven base fabric (usually polyester or nylon) with a waterproofing Polyurethane Coating or laminate. The polyurethane coating is applied to a single side of the base fabric, which makes the fabric water resistant, light weight, and flexible.

Our custom SkyLine canopy tops are PU-coated, 600D polyester canvas, and Dye-Sublimation printing. Together with our aluminum hexagon frame and deluxe wheeled bag, the SkyLine Canopies package is hard to beat!
