3. Upload Files
For raster artwork, the image size must accommodate either the height or width for the largest dimension (44’’ x 60’’ for landscape/portrait and 44’’ x 44’’for square). Your .jpeg image should also have a minimum resolution of 150 ppi.
For vector artwork, please use the provided Illustrator templates. Make sure all photos, textures and linked artwork are embedded in the design and nothing extends past the inner guide.
After uploading your file(s) and clicking ‘next’, your files will be processed by our Art Team and you will be notified via email once your piece is ready for your review.
You will receive an email asking that you review your proofs and submit for approval. Download the proofs to check that everything looks correct, and click ‘next’. If you do not approve of the final proof, please click “back” at the bottom of the page, and re-upload corrected files. On the next page, review the merchandising information for your art and check for any spelling errors.
5. Submit for Approval
Once all your proofs look correct, you can then click ‘submit’ and your files will go through a final review by our Art Team before launching on minted.com. Our team will launch your piece once it completes final review. If you have any additional questions, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
