How should I prepare a file for printing with you?

The basic and easiest answer to this question is that you supply a PRINT-READY PDF file. We recommend a minimum of 300dpi, converted to CMYK colorspace with all fonts outlined AND embedded. Specify your trim area with crop marks (do not place crop marks inside the work area). Make sure you have a minimum of 1/8" (0.125") BLEED on all edges of your job and a 1/8" (0.125") "Safe Area" that has all critical design elements such as text, pulled away from the final trim line.

Following these guidelines and CAREFULLY CHECKING THE RESULTING PDF before uploading will greatly reduce the possibility of error and accelerate your job through the production process.

PDF print ready files:

  • Minimum resolution of 300 dpi
  • CMYK colorspace
  • All fonts outlined and embedded
  • Specify trim area with crop marks (Do not place crop marks inside the work area)
  • Artwork should have 1/8" (0.125") bleed from trim line
  • Information content ("Safe Area") should be 1/8" (0.125") away from trim line.
