Guide for sending an electronic file via email or CD:

  • File format: PDF files are recommended (see link below for Free PDF creation software).  A PDF proof will be made of your file and emailed back to you for review, if you do not submit a PDF file.
  • File size: The maximum acceptable combined file size for all uploads is 30MB (megabytes).
  • Resolution: All file formats must have a minimum of 350 dpi (dot per inch) resolution.
    • The images designed for the web are done at a low screen resolution of 72 dpi. Print images need to be created at 350 dpi or there will be a substantial drop in the image quality.
  • Bleed: Bleed is the portion of the product that will be trimmed off when it is cut to the final size.
    • The purpose of a bleed is to continue a color, image, or design to the edge of the product. Due to the possibility of shifting in the trimming process, a bleed is required to ensure that a white line does not show on the edges of your product. 
    • Please build your print-ready digital files by adding the appropriate bleed to your file.
    • Add at least 0.125" (1/8") bleed to each dimension.
  • Crop marks: Please build your press-ready digital files by adding crop marks.
    • Lines indicating where the paper should be cut to produce the correct size.
