We work with large and small businesses and individual clients – whatever the size of your job, it’s important to us and will receive personal attention.
I have a digital file of my job already completed, can I simply deliver the file to be printed?
Yes, if your file is already “Print-Ready”, just deliver it to us via e-mail or drop off a file at our location. See Guidelines for details on file formats and some basics on how to prepare your file.
file formats/applications are supported?
Microsoft Word, Publisher, Corel, etc. do not create "Print-Ready" files for output. Jobs submitted using these applications will require in-house preparation to ready your files for printing. Let us know if you'd like a quote for in-house file prep.
Files saved at high quality 300 dpi resolution from any program as a TIFF, PDF or EPS are supported. Programs such as QuarkXpress/InDesign, Photoshop, Illustrator, and Freehand will all create “Print-Ready” files.
Basic file preparation guidelines: When using Adobe Illustrator and Freehand, convert all text to outlines. Save your file as a PDF. In Photoshop, save file as a flattened EPS, PDF, JPG or TIFF. When using QuarkXpress or InDesign, include all fonts and linked images along with a PDF format file.
