Preparing Art Files
We accept the following file
formats: .EPS, .AI, .PSD, .JPG, .PDF (sorry we do not work with publisher files)
PROOFS: You will receive your proof(s) via email soon after you upload your files and we review
them. We will check your files and ensure they have the correct file specifications. You will need to check the PROOF(S) carefully
for any errors or omissions before we go to press. Note once you have approved your proof any changes to your order will be
at your expense. Please ensure your files are print-ready, as any changes we need to make may have additional fees.
If we find any problems with your files, we'll contact you and you may submit a different file. Prices include reviewing &
processing one set of uploaded files and creating a single proof. Files not built correctly may delay the order.
CD Submission: If you have submitted a CD of your files,
the proof turnaround will begin after we have received your CD. In addition, for all orders during the holiday season, we
will be extending our proof turnaround time by 1 business day. Files not built correctly may delay the order.
TYPEFONTS: All typefonts in your artfiles should be made
VECTOR also called outlined or set to curves as we may not have your typefont and it may get substituted which may change
RESOLUTION: Minimum of
300 dpi (dot per inch) resolution at 100% of the final print size. Images designed for the web typically cannot be used for
printing as they have a low screen resolution of 72 dpi and print poorly. Print images need to be created at 300 dpi or there
will be a substantial drop in the image quality.
MODE: All color artwork and/or images must be provided in CMYK (cyan, magenta, yellow, black) color mode. All black
& white artwork and/or images must be provided in grayscale color mode.
COLOR MATCH: We cannot guarantee 100% color match. We are able to match your color up to 85%, so
there might be a 15% shift in color when your product is printed. We recommend limited usage of blues and reds, simply because
they are the hardest colors to match.
