If you have digital files that you want to send to us to be printed, it’s a good idea to make sure that it is truly print ready. When preparing your files for print, it’s extremely important that a certain set of guidelines are adhered to:

  • Convert RGB color to CMYK
  • Build files at the correct page size plus .125″ bleed on all 4 sides
  • Raster graphics such as TIF and JPEG files must have a minimum resolution of 300 dpi (dots per inch) at the size they are to be printed
  • If using a page layout program, provide all fonts used in your layout
  • Supply all high-resolution images used in your layout

Quality Printing & Digital File Preparation

Quality printing always starts with a quality product – your artwork or photographic image. While your artwork and photography might be great, if you don’t supply us with a high quality file to print from, your prints might be compromised. Make sure that you are taking all of the necessary steps before sending us your files so that we can provide you with an outstanding finished product.
