Why 125 DPI?
Since your banner will be a large format print, you don't need to prepare your file in 300 DPI which is usually used for smaller format print.

When you are done with the design save the file in TIFF format, flattening all the layers, or PDF
If you have extra graphics outside of the finished size area, create a crop area with the exact size of finishing size before saving.
If you need our graphic designers to modify your art work, send us your original Photoshope file(s).
