If you need help with the image or artwork for your Big Head sign, just let us know via email:
IMPORTANT: What kind of shape do you want your Giant Head sign to look like? Here's what you need to do to have it cut correctly.

In the image with the black dog and blue background, you can see some examples of different Custom Cut options:

No Cut: If you place an order and do not select a Cut option, your sign will be in the exact size and dimensions as the product you ordered (example: 8"x10", 10"x14", 24"x24", etc). And it will print the full image that you upload.

Circle Cut: If you choose a Circle Cut, make sure the photo you upload is just of the face if you want the Circle to be around just the face.

Oval Cut: If you choose an Oval Cut, make sure the photo you upload is just of the face if you want the Oval to be around just the face.

Halo Cut: If you choose a Halo Cut your image may be printed with a small border (possibly white) around the edge of the product. Most importantly, it will need a Cut Line in the image/artwork file before you upload it. If you do not know how to create a cut line in the file, please email the image to and we would be happy to help!

Special Cut: If you choose a Special Cut your order will need a Cut Line in the image/artwork file before you upload it. If you do not know how to create a cut line in the file, please email the image to and we would be happy to help!
Placing a giant head sign order can be done in just a few quick steps:

1) Select the Size of your sign (width & height)

2) Select the Quantity (how many signs)

3) Select the Cut you want (see examples below of Circle, Oval, Halo or Special cut). Both the Halo and the Special Cut need a 'cut line' in the artwork.
* if you need a 'Special' cut or 'Halo' cut and don't know how to put a cut line in your artwork, just email the photo(s) to and we will be happy to do it for you*

4) Complete your purchase (enter billing and shipping information)

5) Upload your artwork
*if we helped you with your artwork and emailed you a screenshot of your 'proof', please do NOT upload that screenshot. It is a low resolution screenshot. We will upload the high resolution file, complete with the needed cut line directly to your order. You can then View your proof online and then Approve it.

For optimal results with your big head sign printing, please keep the following in mind:

1) The image you provide must be a high resolution image. Most cell phone photos are 72dpi. For best results, upload an image that is between 200 and 300dpi. The larger the fathead signs, the higher the resolution you want your photo to be.

2) The image you provide needs to be as crisp and clear as possible. If it's dark or blurry, your results will be dark and blurry. What you see on your cell phone might not look as good blown up and printed on a much larger sign.

3) The image you provide needs to be sized to the product you order. If you order an 18" x 24" fathead sign, your image needs to be 18" x 24". If your image does not match the size of the product you ordered, it may be cropped.

4) Once you place your order and upload your image, while viewing your proof online, check the details of the image in the upper right hand corner. Make sure the size matches the product. Make sure it looks crisp and clear on the computer screen. And then Approve your image.

At Print Signs Quick we are here to help you every step of the way. If you have ANY questions about your artwork, please email us at and we would be more than happy to look at your image, adjust it if need, create a cut line for your Halo or Special Cut and upload it to your order for you.

** Once your order is complete you will receive an email confirmation of the order details. Please make sure to check that everything is correct (product, size, shipping information, etc). If you need to make a change, you only have a very short window where we are able to change it in our system before it goes to print. If you need to change the shipping information or upgrade shipping, we MUST be notified immediately before the order is complete **

First: Find a good quality photo that you want to use and crop it so that just a person's head is in the cropped area (if you need help, just let me know!)

The next step is VERY important. You need to use a software program (such as Adobe Illustrator or a free online program such as Inkscape) to draw a cut line on the image (artwork file) that indicates where you want our cutting machines to cut. The cut line should be in a bright color that is not already being used in the file (bright pink is a great choice). If you are creating this cut line in Adobe Illustrator, the Pen Tool works great for creating cut lines. Once the cut line is drawn, open up Swatches and label this cut line as 'Cut', choose 'Spot' as the color type and choose CMYK as the color mode.

If you don't have software to do this or you are not comfortable creating a cut line, just contact us and we can help for FREE! You can send an email with the photo and let us know how you want it cropped.

Will my banner hold up in windy areas?

Vinyl Banners are great for everyday outside use with occasional windows but if your area has high winds or consistent winds, a mesh banner is the perfect banner for you! Mesh Banners are made of a durable mesh material that has holes that let the windy glide on through the banner. The holes are small enough that it doesn't detract from the full color vivid image, photo or message printed on your banner. On a vinyl banner the hems and grommets doing a pretty good job of reinforcing the banner on windy days. But with a mesh banner the mesh material takes away the constant strain high winds can put on any banner, allowing the banner to last much longer. Both banners can be used outdoors in almost any weather, but if you already know your area is subject to constant winds, choose our mesh banner!

If you are looking for an 18"x 24" to hang on a post or prop up with an H Frame stand, our 6mil is perfect for this! If you really want to make a statement and go big, you can showcase your 24"x 36" For Sale sign on our 10mil Corplast material. All signs are printed with UV coated inks in full vivid color and are meant to last!
