Full color images and photos to be printed in 4-color process must be prepared in CMYK (NOT RGB). Spot colors should be identified as Pantone colors. Files that require changes can have an additional charge or poor print quality and color output.
Include all fonts used in file. When submitting an Illustrator or Freehand document it is suggested that the fonts be converted to outlines. Be sure to embed all fonts when submitting PDF files for print.
A hard copy sample or a PDF of the document is required so we will know what your document should look like.
Microsoft Office applications CAN NOT be spot color separated within the application. If the documents are to be printed on a printing press, we must use special procedures and tools to separate these files that can require an additional charge. We will attempt to match the colors as close as possible.
Our staff is available to assist you in preparing your files properly so we can meet your time, quality and budget demands.
Many answers to your questions to properly prepare a file for commercial printing output are available under the HELP menu of your graphics applications.
