PRINTING EXCELLENCE - AMAZING PRICES - GREAT SERVICE
BASIC RULE FOR PRINTING 1. Everything on the artwork is in CMYK 2. Give us an additional ⅛” on each side 3. Safe zone is ⅛” inside final size 4. No crop marks 5. All fonts converted to outlines/curves and all transparencies flattened. Example: If you are printing a 4”x6” postcard, your file should be 4.125”x6.125” and anything you don’t need cut-off, should be within 3.875”x5.875”. We always do a quick check on all files. If there are issues, we will notify you.
PREFERRED FILE TYPES PDF (High quality) CDR TIF (600 dpi to 1200 dpi) JPEG (Minimum 300 dpi) BOOKLET PRINTING Use the basic printing rules. For an 8.5”x11” finished booklet, just give us each page with bleeds and no crop marks. Your PDF should have all the pages in order. We will send you an online proof.
SIGNS Give us an extra ½” extra on each side for trimming. BANNER AND DISPLAYS Give us an extra 1” on each side for trimming. TIP ON OUR SIGN PRINTING Since we use AI method. A 150 dpi image will come-out amazing. STICKERS ½” extra on each side to allow gripper edge.
