PRE-PRESS DEPARTMENT SOFTWARE REQUIREMENTS
FOR BEST CUSTOM-PRINTED RESULTS, CONSULT OUR "SIMPLE PRINTING" GUIDELINES HERE
The most time and cost effective formats for artwork submission are Adobe Illustrator files (native ".AI" must be compatible with Mac OS) saved as either .AI, .EPS, or .PDF with all text converted to vector outlines. Graphics/logos may be vector or raster format. If raster format, please adhere to these resolution settings:
Bitmap—1200 dpi for black and white line art and graphics containing textual elements
If you cannot supply an Adobe Illustrator .Ai, .EPS, or .PDF, we can work with the following applications, but their use incurs a $50 reformatting charge:
SETTING UP YOUR ART FILES FOR COLOR OUTPUT
SENDING YOUR FILES
Artwork that needs to be scanned should be mailed/shipped in protective packaging to Sheppard Envelope, ATTN: Prepress Dept., 133 Southbridge Street, Auburn, MA 01501.
Artwork re-worked/rebuilt at Sheppard: If our prepress department determines the art it receives must be re-worked to be imprintable, we will let you know. If you decide to have Sheppard Prepress re-work your supplied art, the fee for this service is $50 per hour ($30 minimum).
Any questions or concerns, no matter how seemingly small, please contact our pre-press department at 800-325-6622, or 508-791-5588, and ask for Pre-press. Via email: firstname.lastname@example.org.
