See below for our frequently asked questions…
I already have a Sim Imaging account. How do I get SimWare?
Please login to your account and download the Simware from your Workroom area.
Are there any items I cannot order in the online editor?
Yes, the new Tailored range. Due to the complex shapes, these can only be ordered via SimWare.
How many items can i put into the shopping cart?
Using our online editor you can put up to 15 items at once. Using SimWare you can put up to 3 items at once.
Do you colour correct and add sharpening to files?
Sim Express DOES NOT apply any colour correction or sharpening to your images. The colour management of the supplied image is your responsibility. Files must have an embedded profile of sRGB to achieve the best printed results.
Which printing press do you use?
All the products are printed using a HP Indigo Press.
What is the maximum file size I can upload?
On our system you can upload you print ready files to a maximum of 20mb per file. And our online library we hold 400mb of files, if you library gets full you can delete older not in use files.
What web browser should I use to upload?
We recommend Firefox or Chrome for both Mac & PC, not a phone or tablet for the online version.
What file format should I upload?
Please upload Adobe PDF’s or Jpeg files for our online Editor and Jpegs for SimWare. For optimum results please make sure the images have an embedded rather than tagged colour profile of sRGB with a 300dpi resolution. For Adobe PDF files, ensure all fonts and images are embedded. Save the files as High Quality Print or Press Quality PDF’s.
Where do I check/approve over my files?
Image files will need to be throughly checked over using the sRGB colour profile, and orders are approved as you checkout. The Approval area is for text and layout approval only, and does not have a colour correcting facility (Colours may differ from screen to screen due to colour settings of that specific screen).
