What types of images will work for quality printing?
If you are scanning images it's best to save them as a .tif format. This image format will preserve the color and sharpness of your pictures. File formats like gif or .jpg use compression and the pictures color and resolution can be severely distorted.

JPG's and gif's are the most popular image formats on the web, it's a good idea not to simply copy an image from a website and use it in your layout. The quality will be very poor since the images are typically only 72 dpi.

You should scan your images using a resolution of 300dpi at the final dimensions you intend to use them. Your colors and sharpness will look vibrant and smooth. Don't scan an image at 300dpi and then enlarge the picture by 300% in your layout program! Scan it to the actual size. If you scan it at 300 dpi and then reduce it in you layout program you should still get good results.

If you are using pictures from a digital camera they should work ok if they are .jpgs. The quality of .jpg images from digital cameras are much better quality than .jpgs from the web. You must do the math to make sure that it is high enough in pixel resolution though. For example, if your camera puts out an image of 1280 x 960 pixels at 72dpi you get about 17" x 13" of image at 72dpi. You would need to reduce the image to about 4" x 3" to get decent quality on the printing press.

Bleeds & Margins:
Bleed is the term for printing that makes it appear that the printing goes right to the edge of the paper. Printing is never printed off the edge of the paper on the press. We use over sized paper and then trim the paper so that it appears that the image was printed off the page. The best way to do this is to make your document 1/4" bigger in all dimensions. For example, if the final size is 8-1/2" x 11" then make your document 8-3/4" x 11-1/4". Draw guides on the layout that are 1/8" from the edge all the way around.

Create your document with the idea that the layout will be cut off where those guides are. Be sure that any photographs, images or backgrounds that you want to bleed go past the guidelines. Also, be sure that any text or information that you want to keep, stays inside the inside margins of at least 1/8" inside each side of the finished 8-1/2" x 11" dimension. After we print your piece we will trim off that extra 1/8" all the way around and you will end up with your 8-1/2" x 11" piece.


Acceptable Digital Art:

  • Print-Ready PDF (PREFERRED METHOD) *
  • Adobe Illustrator
  • Adobe InDesign (Please send Collected Files)
  • Adobe Photoshop
  • EPS
  • High-resolution JPG** (min 300 dpi)
  • Microsoft Word
  • Microsoft Publisher
  • - files should be at correct size and setup for bleed if applicable (see below) and not tiled in multiple sheet/panel formats.

    If you need to submit a file in a different format than those listed above, please contact your Sales OR Customer Service Representative to find out if the format is useable.
    * Print-Ready should include any bleeds WITHOUT crop marks, no registration marks, no color registration bars, no white borders. All folding, cutting, die-lines, etc. should be removed. If you need to send these, please create a separate file.
    ** JPG format should only be used for photos and possibly logos if no vector format is available

    Logos:
    Logos should be in either an EPS or Vector format. Logos that are being printed two-color on press MUST be in either of these formats so that they can be correctly separated into spot colors. JPG & TIFF files are acceptable for digital production, but they must be high-resolution and will be printed in 4 color process.

    Fonts:
    All files should be sent with fonts converted to outlines or curves. Source files should either have fonts converted or include the fonts in a zipped file. For files submitted in MS Word or Publisher using custom fonts, either convert to PDF or include the font file. Otherwise we will do our best to match the fonts with what we have available. It is best to convert all files to Print-Ready PDF files and embed all fonts.

    CMYK & Spot Colors:
    All files being printed digitally should be set up for CMYK printing. All files being printed on press should be set for for either CMYK or spot colors.

    Linked Images:
    If a source file contains linked images or graphics, the linked files should be included in zipped folder along with the source file, otherwise they should be embedded in the file itself. Images should be at a resolution of 300 DPI for best print quality. If you are printing a picture at a larger size than the native file, the resolution should be high enough to prevent pixelation.
