Preparing your Electronic File

A. Supported Programs

  • Adobe InDesign
  • Adobe Illustrator
  • QuarkXpress
  • Hi-Res PDF with Bleeds
*If you are unable to furnish your file in one of the above applications, we will support other programs but additional charges may apply depending on the time required to prepare your files for print.

B. Files need to have all fonts and images included. Images should be supplied at a minimum of 300 dpi, CMYK and a maximum density of 300 or less.

C. Files need to be supplied as single pages. If files ARE NOT supplied as single pages, additional charges may apply.

D. Files that bleed need to be supplied with 1/8" bleeds on all sides.

E. We ask that files that are uploaded to our FTP site be accompanied with a lo-res PDF for a reference to make sure there is nothing wrong with the file once we open and work on it (ex: rewrap, images dropping off, etc).
