We have prepared the following guide to assist you with your electronic file preparation and submission. If you have a specific problem that is not covered in this guide, or have other questions, please feel free to contact us. Improperly prepared files can cause delays in manufacturing.

 

Quick Checklist

 

All fonts are included.

►Type is legible and crisp.

►Page layout is correct.

►Margins are set.

►Artwork matches the specified dimensions.

►Colors in CMYK mode.

 


Bleeds


A 1/8" border must be added to pictures and designs bleeding to the edge, so that there is no white space or border showing around the artwork. It is also important to keep text at least a 1/4" away from the paper edge or the trim line to prevent accidental cropping.

 
 

Color Specifications


Print previews are not a safe and sure measuring tool for color accuracy. Colors on the file might be effected by monitor calibration, screen resolution and lighting. Please make sure all colors are in CMYK mode for color accuracy and a better quality output.

 

Image Resolutions

 

                                  ►All images and pictures should be 300 dpi.

                                  ►Large format print(poster, banner, wall sticker etc) at least 150 dpi.

 

Guidelines by Application

 

The following outlines the specific file requirements by application. If you have any questions, please contact our graphics department.

Digital Proofs

 

Online Proofing is done in RGB, full color printing is done in CMYK so the colors that you view online may not be exactly what is printed, colors may shift as a result of this conversion.
