What are your Pre-press Requirements?
ACCEPTABLE FORMATS: Adobe Illustrator files (Mac OS, version CC or earlier) 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; TIFF, 300 dpi for grayscale graphics. If the graphic contains text, increase resolution to 600 dpi minimum; JPEG, 300 dpi for grayscale graphics. If the graphic contains text, increase resolution to 600 dpi minimum. 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: InDesign CC (Mac OSX: Include images and fonts or convert to vector outline). Adobe Photoshop CC or earlier (Mac OS: PSD, TIFF, EPS, PDF, JPEG). If your PSD file contains text layers, convert them to vector outlines. For more detailed information on our Pre-press Requirements, click here. Microsoft Word files are not acceptable as imprint-ready artwork. You may submit Word documents, however, they will incur a typesetting/formatting charge.
What is the Pantone Matching System?
The Pantone Matching System (PMS) is a color reproduction standard in which colors all across the spectrum are each identified by a unique, independent number. The use of PMS allows us to match colors (plus or minus one shade) and maintain color consistency throughout the printing process.
What would be my shipping costs?
We ship via UPS Ground or motor freight, unless otherwise requested. Shipping charges vary by product (weight), quantity and distance.
