Turnaround Times Are Fast
10 to 250 11x17 prints = 1 days
300 to 1000 = 2 days
1250+ = 3 days
Turnaround time begins once the artwork is sent to production, which may take 2-4 business hours after the order is placed.
Digital Proofs Are Useful.
A PDF proof can showcase any substantial color changes, bleed area, trim lines, and last proofreading opportunity. The colors are not 100% representative of the final product, and the trim marks are estimations.
We typically send digital proofs within 4 to 6 business hours. Our graphic design staff observes artwork for bleed, resolution, and size issues. If we cannot fix problems quickly, a Printkeg artist will email a PDF proof demonstrating related concerns. Our main goal is to ensure you are entirely delighted with the final prints.
Digital proofs increase turnaround by one extra day.
Sending 11x17 Art To Us is Easy.
Art can be uploaded from this page or sent to us later. If you run into technical issues and cannot upload the file, please email it to firstname.lastname@example.org with the order number as the subject. For larger files, you may need to use a third-party file storage company (Google Drive, Box, Dropbox, etc.). Sometimes, 11x17 art can be a bit large in file size, so don't panic if you cannot upload it on this page.
Try Following These Art Guidelines For The Best 11x17 Printing Results.
If the below recommendations seem gibberish to you, don't let them dissuade you from ordering. Our specialists will work closely with you if there are any quality concerns regarding your file. Since we focus on retail printing for artists, we encourage you to submit the best file possible.
- Be sure to add an extra quarter-inch to your file size. Also, try to make your file the dimensions 11.25" x 17.25". This extra space, called "the bleed area, " provides edge-to-edge 11" x 17" prints. Focus on preserving critical text and imagery by keeping those items at least 0.25 inches away from all edges. The pixel range for your 11x17 project should be 3375 x 5175.
- When starting a new digital design, scanning a physical artwork, or photographing a painting, ensure your final file will be 300 dpi. 300dpi is the lowest setting considered high-quality printing in our industry. If you're not careful, many applications and hardware may export your art as a low-grade 72dpi or mid-quality 132dpi.
- We prefer PDF or JPG file formats. Our graphic professionals also accept other popular file types, such as PNG, EPS, and TIF.
- Try designing or reviewing your digital art in CMYK color mode. We convert most 11x17 art to CMYK before printing begins. 11x17 prints on watercolor paper and photo paper are exceptions to this policy. Please consider ordering a PDF proof if this is your first time printing with our company.

If you favor lighter paper options and lower prices, 11x17 Flyer Printing located in the "Flyers" collection, is where you may want to visit. Many marketers prefer the savings of the thinner stocks since they are still beautiful.
11x17 Prints on Watercolor Paper
Artists admire our 11x17 prints on watercolor paper. The "Textured Card (100# Cover") stock from this page is a means to emulate the watercolor paper look, but we also offer the real thing. Granted, you are looking at a considerable cost difference. Textured and watercolor paper are archival.
11x17 or 11x14?
Sometimes customers order 11x17 posters, but the art seems to operate better as 11x14 or 12x18. If this scenario (or vice versa) is the case with your artwork, one of our designers will ask if you would like to switch print sizes.
What other sizes can I print if my art is 11x17?
Like many other artists, you may choose to print additional sizes of your 11" x 17" artwork portfolio. Here are some possible size options that 11x17 art fits well.
- 3" x 4" (80% compatible)
- 4" x 6" postcard (90% fit)
- 5" x 7" card (80% and fairly manageable)
- 6" x 9" print (90% compatible)
- 8" x 12" print (95%, better option than 8" x 10")
- 12" x 18" poster (95%, easy to refit)
- 16" x 24" poster (90%, watch that resolution)
- 20" x 30" large print (100% but watch that resolution)
- 24" x 36" poster (90%, generally works great)
Notably, 8.5" x 11" and 8" x 10" prints are missing. Generally, those sizes fit 11" x 14" better. Most artists send in different files for these dimensions. Sometimes, our staff can make it work or recommend a different size - such as 8" x 12" prints.
It is possible to resize 11" x 17" art to fit print sizes outside the above list, but the process may require slight cropping or graphics work. Our in-house specialists are available to make sure your prints look sensational. In the end, you should order the print size you prefer most. If there are concerns, we will recommend alternative dimensions.
Pro Tips for Custom 11x17 Prints
Print Tip #1 - Be Willing to Change Size
Many artists order 11x17 since that size is one of customers' most commonly accepted small poster dimensions. If your art does not fit the 11x17 ratio very well, we may recommend switching to 11x14 or 12x16 - both recourses are traditional and effortlessly framed. This change helps us ensure the physical prints properly represent your digital artwork.
Print Tip #2 - Watch That Signature!
Our staff will likely email you if there is a signature close to the edges of your art and we can't save it. Adding borders to art is an uncomplicated way to preserve an artist's signature. To avoid delays, you can preemptively let us know to add borders (this is a free service) in the instructions area.
Print Tip #3 - CMYK Rules The Print Universe
The colors on your monitor can be deceitful. Thousands of factors affect color results, but the most common issue we see is RGB colors are muted once we convert to CMYK. To visualize possible shifts, order a PDF digital proof. The sample PDFs we send are not 100% accurate, but they will signal massive changes. The soundest route to see the final print colors is by starting with a small order and risking a few dollars rather than committing significant investments.
Printing your art on gloss art cardstock grants gorgeous colors and a satin shine perfect for almost any project. This paper is perfect for printing digital fan art.
Many artists prefer our opaque, uncoated, and warm matte art paper. Colors are intentionally a little more subdued for an elegant feel.
Textured paper promotes a watercolor-like paper texture to capture the authenticity of physical art. Each print carries imperfections for a unique customer experience
Gold or Silver
Metallic cardstocks are the rage. Choose Metallic Gold or Pearl Silver. These media selections are easy ways to offer limited-edition prints of your fan art.
The gold is in your face, and the pearl silver is subtle since the paper is ivory pearlescent. The end results are stunning yet intentionally unpredictable.
We added metallic variants to allow fan artists to add limited edition prints to their arsenal in the same way comic book companies offer alternative covers.
A Printkeg artist will prepare your artwork for printing and send you a visual in PDF format via email. This usually takes place within a few business hours. The image we will email you showcases trim location and CMYK colors in a limited fashion.
