Before sending us the final artwork please make sure to print out a
hard copy on you laser printer and proof read all text. Also open the
PDF file in Adobe PDF reader and zoom to 300%. Now make sure all the
images are crisp and sharp. This is a very quick and easy way to make
sure that the file resolution is good for printing.
