Stock Images in our Gallery
All the images you see in our stock art gallery were acquired from either Fotolia.com, Istockphoto.com or Shutterstock.com. We will print these images for you in any panel size the image resolution supports. If the panel you have selected is too large for the chosen image, our graphic designer will notify you and you may choose another image or follow any case-by-case recommendation the designer makes. If the image requires any extensive modification, graphic design fees may be incurred.
Custom Images you Provide
For digital or scanned artwork or photography, be sure to send the image in the highest resolution possible (figure about a megapixel for every ten inches minimum, every 8 inches recommended). For copyrighted images, you must have the copyright holder's permission to use any copyrighted image you submit. We will require you to send us an email stating you have permission to use the images you're submitting. For Example, if you wish to print a movie poster of the Avengers, you will need to send us an email from the email address used to place the order, stating you have permission from Marvel Studios or Disney Corporation to use their images.
Frequently Asked Questions
Here is a list of the most frequently asked questions regarding our custom printed acoustic panels.
Q: Across how many sound panels can Acoustimac span a single piece of artwork?
A: We can span images across as many panels as you wish, just as long as the artwork resolution is high enough to be able to split it up into those many pieces at the right sizes.
Q: Can I use any color combination?
A: Of course, our acoustic art panels are printed using a four color process that produces millions of possible colors. We print all our panels on white fabric for the best contrast.
Q: What is the average resolution on these prints?
A: The average Resolution is 150 dots per inch (dpi). Any lower than that will compromise output quality. Higher than that will be scaled down to 150 anyway.
Q: What kind of file format do I need to submit to have my panels printed by Acoustimac?
A: The formats we prefer are: Adobe PDF, PSD, or EPS and JPEG or PNG. Don’t worry about RGB to CYMK conversions or registration marks; we’ll take care of all that. Just make sure your artwork has enough of a margin between the edges and foreground elements to ensure the foreground element doesn't get trimmed or folded over the sides.
