Art Requirements

CLICK HERE to download a PDF of our art requirements and instructions on exporting PDF's.

Send a High Quality (Print Quality) PDF file and a zipped folder of the design file with all links (pictures, logos) and fonts for ALL artwork.

Make documents to size. For example, a business card is 2” x 3.5” so that will be your document size. DO NOT gang up individual items (i.e. do not put 8 business cards on a letter size sheet - just send one 2" x 3.5" business card). If you are sending a booklet, do not paginate into spreads. Send pages actual size in sequential order.

If the document bleeds, extend bleed past the page .125” (1/8) of an inch while creating the artwork. Additional steps are required to keep these settings while exporting the PDF in some programs (see below). In order to avoid those steps you can increase the document size by .25” (1/4) inch on both sides (an 8.5" x 11" would be 8.75" x 11.25") and extend bleed to the edge of the document.

Art files can be sent to us in one of three ways: as an email attachment (up to 10 MB), FTP upload, or brought in on a CD or flash drive. If you would like to use our FTP, call or email and ask for an info sheet with the login name and password.

Send a hard copy proof of your job with correct folds, scoring, colors, margins, etc.
