Preparing Print-Ready Design Files

These are guidelines for providing print-ready design files to ensure your order can be processed as quickly as possible. Please submit files that do not require any editing. Files requiring multiple revisions and editing on our end will incur graphic handling charges.

GRAPHIC REQUIREMENTS

Resolution: 150 DPI at Full Size

Color Mode: CMYK

Preferred File Types: Vector formats such as PDF, EPS, AI

        Acceptable File Types: JPG, TIFF, JPG, PNG

Fonts: Outlined

Images: Embedded (150 DPI to 300 DPI)

SUBMITTING ARTWORK

Please use the provided templates to lay out your designs. Designs that don’t follow the provided templates run the risk of having sizing issues or having important text or logos of being cut off.

Please include all original template layers and locked in your file submission. These may be hidden for your convenience. Include all graphics, logos, text, etc. in the Artwork layer.

Please be sure to submit artwork at least 150 DPI at the full size of your graphics. Your order will be printed from the original artwork provided. We accept the following print ready files: AI*, PDF*, EPS*, TIFF, JPEG, PSD, PNG (*preferred file formats). For best results, submit vector file formats or files with high-resolution images embedded (at least 150 DPI at full size).

FONTS

Convert all text to outlines to ensure that they will display and print correctly; we do not accept font files.

COLOR

All artwork is printed in CMYK. All artwork will be converted to CMYK color which may result in some color to change. Unless a printed proof is ordered, we are not responsible for unsatisfactory color results. If your design is color-sensitive, please contact us for more information.

DIGITAL PROOFS

Digital proofs will be emailed to you prior to printing. At this time, be sure to check your artwork and your text for any spelling, typographical, and graphical errors. We will not be held responsible for any of these errors once the proof has been approved to start printing.

Print production will start the day after approval as long as it is received before 1pm PST. Any proof approvals after this time may have their approval date set for the following day.

RUSH ORDERS

Orders with a 3-4 day turnaround time can be rushed for an additional $50 fee. These orders must be received before 1pm PST. Production will be expedited to a 1-2 day turnaround time and will start the day after proof is approved. Rush orders will also have an expedited shipping fee. Please contact us as soon as possible to expedite your order.
