The best way of supplying files is by sending high resolution print ready PDF's. We recommend the PDF/X-1a standard version. All graphics can be EPS, TIFF, JPG, GIF, PDF, WMF, or PSD formats if created from the following programs:
- Adobe Illustrator
- Adobe InDesign
- Adobe PageMaker
- Adobe Photoshop
- Quark Xpress.
We prefer you submit PDF's created from InDesign or Quarkxpress. So, please be aware that Microsoft applications (Publisher and Word) pdfs contain transparency layer issues.
Colors should be CMYK.
Files that are more than one page must be set up as a single page layout. (Example: A 4 page book would be 1 PDF of 4 individual pages)
All screen & printer fonts must be included and placed in a separate folder for Macintosh program files. Fonts for PC jobs must be supplied as Truetype fonts, Open file face fonts, or PFM Adobe fonts.
All images must be included and separated properly and placed in a separate folder. Such examples would be CMYK images or duotones for 2 color work, grayscale for black only jobs etc.
If Illustrator is used, art must be submitted with text converted to outlines.
