Art Guidelines

Important Art Submission Details

All files should be submitted as print quality PDFs. When there is process colors, the PDF should be set up in CMYK format, not RGB; except for 1 and 2 color projects such as letterhead and envelopes.

Any files other than PDF may be accepted, but may present quality and timing issues. PDF files are definitely preferred.

1/8” bleed is required for art with bleeds.

A minimum resolution of 275 DPI is required for all raster art and images. Artwork, designs and images submitted with a lower resolution than 275 DPI may not print as sharp and clean as desired. We strongly suggest that all items except for background images be at least 1/8″ from the trim line. Text or graphics falling closer than 1/8″ to the trim line may be cut off.

When submitting multiple page art, make sure and set up the art as single page spreads, not printer spreads.

If customer supplied artwork requires technical or design re-work, additional charges will apply.
