All file formats must have a minimum of 300 dpi (dot perinch) resolution. The images designed for the web are done at a low screen resolution of 72 dpi. Print images need to be created at 300 dpi or there will be a substantial drop in the image quality. COLOR MODE: All color artwork and/or images must be provided in CMYK (cyan, magenta, yellow, black) color mode. All black & white artworks and / or images must be provided in grayscale color mode. Heavy black ink might cause smearing.
Please build your press-ready digital files by adding 0.125″dimension to all files. We require ALL files to be built to the full bleed dimension specified for each trim size. Simply add 0.125″ to the overall dimension of your digital layout. Example: a 5″ x 7″ would have a bleed size of 5.25″ x 7.25″ and a 8.5″ x 11″ flyer would have a bleed size of 8.75″ x 11.75″. What’s a bleed? It is the portion of the card that will be trimmed off when cut to the final size. Why bleed? The purpose of a bleed is to continue a color, image, or design to the edge of the card.
Please build your press-ready digital files by adding cropmarks. Lines indicating where the paper should be cut to produce the correct size.
