We recommend that you save your files as PDFs.
We can also accept jpg, jpeg, tif, psd, eps, & ai.
(We can accept Word, Excel & Powerpoint files but suggest that you convert them for PDF.)
All artwork should be complete and the correct size for the product you are ordering.
Allow 1/8” bleed all around using crop marks for copy placement. Items that don’t bleed should be at least 1/8” from the edge.
If your file will print in color, make sure the color is set to CMYK.
If you send a file as RGB the colors may shift and you will not get the intended result. If your file is set up as RGB, convert to a CMYK and do any color adjustments necessary before sending the file.
All files should be submitted at no less than 300 dpi. If you are using scanned images, scan the actual print size or larger. Enlarging a picture will reduce the effective resolution and will result in unacceptable print output. Also, do not “up sample” a low resolution image (72) to 300 dpi. No matter what it says, it will still print like a 72 dpi image.
