Product Description

Using our own FD waterproof film, Wasatch RIP software, and fully calibrated Epson printers we can output film with your separated files to your specifications. All of our printed film is guaranteed to have a dMax rating of 3.5. What does this mean? It means that the imaging is very dense and the halftone dots are very crisp. Since the film is dimensionally stable you won't have to worry about the registration being off. Since we print off a roll we can do film sizes up to 42" x 100'. If you don't see a size that suits your needs please contact us for more information.

Do you need the file separated also? We can handle that too. We offer a wide variety of separation techniques to suite your printing needs. Please check out our separations page for more information:

If you'll be providing us a separated file we require it to be sent in one of the following formats:

  • Adobe Illustrator (ai, eps or pdf) Image must be to final output size. Each color must be a spot color or 100% black. Any CMYK or RGB colors will print as halftones.
  • Adobe Photoshop (psd, dcs 2.0, tif) at 200dpi or higher at size, the separated colors must be saved to channels
  • If the image has halftone dots please specify line screen and frequency. We recommend 35 lpi for use with discharge inks, 45 lpi for most applications and 55 or 65 lpi if you need to hold really fine detail. By default we run all spot color half tones at 45 lpi at 52.5 degrees. Other dot sizes and angles available upon request. We recommend using a screen that is 5x the lpi. So a 45-lpi film will require a screen with minimum of 225 mesh.
  • Since the film is being produced on an inkjet printer the lowest font size we recommend would be 8pts. We've printed as low as 4 pt but through a loop the image may be hard to read.

 

We check the files for potential problems and will notify you if something doesn't look right. But to reduce the chance of an error or a delay in the order please follow the above guidelines. If you're not sure about how to set up the file just send us an email with your art and we'll get right back to you:  info@filmdirectonline.com

  • Please upload the image at the time of the order to the image up-loader on this page. Or Email us the file or a DropBox link

The price listed here is for one sheet of film. If you have a multiple color design or multiple images please update the shopping cart to reflect the total number of sheets to be output. Pick the sheet size as big or bigger than your art file with a 1/4 inch bleed around the file.  IE If your file is a full 13" then order the 17x22" film as it may get cut off or reduce the size to 12.5"

  2. Quality Service + Product 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 14th Jul 2015

    Always super satisfied working with FilmDirect. Bryan is very helpful + accommodating and all around great to work with. And the separations are always great quality, very crisp.


  3. Great quality and fast, friendly service 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 2nd Dec 2014

    I use large format films and the quality is great. Crisp line definition, dark black ink deposit and accurate registration for the different colors. The quality of the service is top notch and there is good communication from Film Direct (yes - you Bryan) to make sure everything is done correctly the first time. They also get the work out to me very quickly.


  4. Not 100% what I was hoping for 3 Star Review

    Posted by on 22nd Oct 2014

    The ink density was good, and having the oversized print option was what I was looking for, plus the price was better than any local (NYC area) competitors. That said, the file I submitted had vector information in it, but the print quality looks like a bitmap (probably as a result of rip software processing) that means that straight hard edges printed with a jagged edge, not the crisp vector quality I provided in my file.
    Film Direct Added: The file submitted had low resolution raster images embedded in an illustrator document. Which explains the jaggedness in the print.


  5. Very happy 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 5th Mar 2014

    Fast turnaround, great quality opaque black film. Will continue to use this service for my oversized screen prints.

  8. Always my source for quality film output 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 27th Aug 2013

    I started doing my own screen printing - CRKD Clothing - about 2 years ago, and I'm so glad I came across Film Direct. We've ordered several transparencies from them, and they've always come through with great quality. It makes my job much easier, and they provide great customer service.


  9. This is the film company we use for all of our transparencies 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 18th Apr 2013

    Always willing to work with us, and they've been nice enough to warn us when a file isn't coming through correctly. Every product is perfect.
