When prepping your files to be sent, be sure to do the following:
Media: We accept Email, and removable Flash Drives. Always include a printed hard copy
Be aware that monitor colors vary so desired colors must be submitted in writing.
When emailing artwork, place multiple documents, images, and fonts in a single folder before stuffing.
Convert: all images to CMYK and or PMS (Pantone spot colors) NO RGB IMAGES
Placing Images: Never place/insert any image over 120% in any layout program
Raster Images: Photoshop, Corel, or scans should be at least 300 DPI @ 100% image printing size.
Saving to PDF: When saving a digital file as a PDF, be sure the art is the exact finished size with crop marks.
If your job is 4-color process, be sure that all colors are CMYK, especially linked image files. Convert using no
compression if possible, and save using PRINT or PRESS optimization defaults. Be aware if you don’t tell the
program to save all original colors, it may convert your spot colors to CMYK or RGB.
Scanned Artwork: Will be of lower quality than the original vector artwork. Scanning takes longer to output
and needs to be edited. We charge $100 per hour, ¼ hour minimum. We will not scan faxes.
Bleeds should extend 1/16 on all sides of the design. This will help trim your product accurately.
