CHECKLIST For Print Ready Files

Preparing Artwork > General Questions
#1 - COLOR SPACE
        Be sure the file is setup as CMYK instead of RGB. If you're not sure, we can convert for you for a small fee
 
#2 - CORRECT BLEED
        Add a quarter inch bleed to your height and width (1/8" to all sides)
 
#3 - HI - RES IMAGES
        Full size images should be no less than 150dpi, 300dpi is perfect for maximum print quality
 
#4 - TEMPLATES
        Be sure to use our templates to ensure proper placement and sizing. Design work should not alter the template in any way.
 
#5 - CORRECT SAVE OPTIONS
        When saving as PDF, be sure that you DO NOT DOWN SAMPLE in the options before saving
 
#6 - FILES BUILT TO SIZE
        Build files for final product size, problems emerge when trying to scale small files to larger sizes.
 
#7 - WHITE TEXT
        Do NOT set to overprint
 
#8 - BLACK TEXT
        Should be 100% black and not a mix of CMYK
 
#9 - FOLDING JOBS
        If your job has folding, PLEASE use our template to ensure the panels are correct sizes and folds line up properly
