File Transfer Guidelines
To ensure we have everything we need and to complete your project on time please read over these guidelines provided to help you get the highest quality results without incurring additional costs or unnecessary delays. Careful adherence to these guidelines will ensure complete success.
Please Submit Art On One Of The Following; CD, DVD, Jump Drive, E-Mail (If Under 10MB) Or By Using The Drop Box Below.
Submitted files should be professionally created at full size or at scale in adobe photoshop, adobe illustrator or corel draw and saved as native files (.psd.ai, or .cdr extensions, respectively). Any document containing text should have all text elements converted to outlines, or paths; doing so will avoid font conflicts–a major source of delay for many jobs. Remember to save a copy for yourself without converted text just in case last-minute edits are necessary. Avoid complex blends and paths, and any transparency effects in illustrator or freehand; these effects can cause major delays, or even prevent a file from processing at all. Imported art elements should be linked, not embedded. Remember to update links and supply them along with the file to be output. Furnish some form of color proof to match to, created from the submitted file and indicate any pantone colors used. Supply all full-color files in cmyk color space. Any artwork or imagery that extends to the edges of the finished piece will require bleed. Crop or trim marks should indicate the finished size of the piece.
Image Resolution is determined by the final use and viewing distance of the product. A billboard to be viewed from 100 feet away needs much less resolution than a pop display that will be viewed from a couple of feet away. A “general” rule is to have a minimum of 150 dpi at final output size (full scale). Of course, the more resolution you have the better your final output will look. Contact us if you have image resolution requirement questions.
Please provide us with information about how long the graphic will be displayed, in what environmental conditions, and from what viewing distance. Also provide information on how the graphic will be stored, handled, and/or reused in the future. Not all pantone colors can be reproduced accurately. Color proofs are recommended for corporate colors & some pantone colors. Colors that are designed to match a pantone color should be specified in the file as that pantone color and set to spot.
For best results please provide us with a color correct proof, dummy book or pdf for quality control and color matching purposes.
