We use the latest technology in IBM-BASED systems. We have the latest software versions of Adobe Illustrator (.eps), Adobe Photoshop (.psd), CorelDraw (.cdr). For all other software, save files as an encapsulated postscript (.eps) file. Such files are generally acceptable, as long as the file has been exported as an .eps file and not merely renamed as such. Departure from our standards may result in delays to production schedule.
Convert all type to curves, paths or outlines (vector art). If this is not possible, send in screen and printer fonts used for the job to be printed.
For multi-color orders, use Pantone spot colors and indicate exact PMS color numbers.
If line screen or dot pattern is used, a 35-line screen must be used with percentages no less than 10% or greater than 40%. Files that include gradients or blends will need alterations for optimum printing quality.
When supplying a disk, please provide a hard copy or faxed copy output for proofing purposes. On multi-color orders, please indicate color breaks.
300 DPI is the lowest resolution for bitmap format and art should be sent to the requested imprint size.
