We need minimum 300 dpi, high resolution files, in CMYK file format. We prefer native files like PSD, AI, EPS, etc, Vectors are better. Press ready PDF's with fonts embedded/outlined/rasterized are always easy to work with. Please do include bleeds as per the guidelines mentioned in the product details at time of order. You may download a blank design template by clicking the "design template download" button and please follow instructions on set up of mask files using the "special finishing options" button at the bottom of this page.
A bleed is highly recommended, and must go all the way to the document edge. A 0.125" bleed is required on most products, please cotact us at email@example.com for the exact bleed requirements with the product of interest. If you have a front and back design, please send us TWO pdf's, and all masks files for foil/raised ink/embossing etc. must also be sent as additional files.
Borders are NOT recommended, and we do not guarantee them as our trimming machines have a cutting tolerance of 1-2mm. If you MUST have a border, please keep it well within the "safe" or blue zone as marked on our templates to avoid it getting cut off.
When exporting your file from INdesign or Illustrator, always select "press ready PDF" as option to save the file as. Please use our templates to set up your designs, all you need to do is drop them in your design program and keep everything important in the blue "safe" zone and save the file as a press-ready PDF. If you have any set up questions, feel free to email info@firstname.lastname@example.org with exact print product you want to order, and we will answer your questions.
