What type of files can I send?

We recommend saving as a .PDF
You may also send the file in the following types: jpg, jpeg, psd, tif, tiff, eps, ai, and png.

We prefer that you send. PDF and .EPS files with outlined fonts. These files are easier to handle and will likely speed up your turn-around. Remember to add crop marks and flatten your files before uploading.

 

How do I export a .pdf correctly?

When exporting from any program such as Indesign or Illustrator, use these setting to make sure your .PDF files export correctly.

Adobe PDF Preset is set to: Press Quality
Compatibility is set to: Acrobat 4 (PDF 1.3)
Compress Text and Line Art is set to: Off

 

Can I submit multiple files in one document?

We are now specifically set up to process one side at a time, and this requires that each side of a job must be on a separate file. Not separating files will cause delays and you might have to send the files again. Remember to separate the pages of your .pdf files as well.

 

What is overprint and how can it ruin my file?

Primarily used to intentionally overlap inks for a number of reasons, overprint can cause unexpected results. We suggest that you turn all overprint objects off before submitting your files.

 

How should I set up my bleed and crop marks?

Bleed must extend further than the cut line. Using one of our Certified Templates can help you visualize this. Please keep all text and anything you do not want cut at least .125" away from the cut line.
