Print-Ready Files

 

Print-ready files are those which adhere to our file requirements. Below is a list of requirements sorted by application. General rule of thumb: any image placed into your file must be in CMYK format, 300 dpi resolution and have an 1/8" safe-area margin. Whenever possible, convert fonts to outlines, curves, and/or paths. Extend bleeds 1/8" beyond finished size. Always submit files at 100% of size to be printed. Orders for non-standard size products such as European business cards should be brought to our attention.

 

Please feel free to ask us any questions you may have before
submitting your files. We are always glad to help!
