F.A.Q.

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, tif, tiff, eps, and png.

We prefer that you send .PDF with embedded or outlined fonts. .PDF’s are easier to handle and will likely speed up your turn-around. Remember to flatten your files before uploading.

What resolution should my file be

300 DPI.
Low resolution files may be printed as is or will be placed on hold until we receive new files, slowing your turn-around.

How should I set up my bleed

Bleed must extend past the cut-line and will be trimmed from the product during the final cutting phase. When the image is required to extend all the way to the edge, bleed is needed to preserve the finished look and the quality of the final product.

Please keep all text at least 0.125″ inside the cut-line.

– The bleed for Standard Products is 0.125″ – 0.25″.
– The bleed for Booklets and Presentation Folders is 0.25″.
– For large format Products, 0.5″.

How can I make sure my blues do not come out purple

When using a blue in your design, always make sure to leave at least a 30% difference in your Cyan and Magenta values.

For example:

C-100 M-100 Y-0 K-0 on screen will look like this:
img_0045

But when print, it will looks like that:
img_0046

Blue is close to purple in the CMYK spectrum. Remember, use a low amount of magenta whenever using high amounts of cyan to avoid purple.
