Artwork submitted for production must be press-ready to ensure best turn-around time and quality.

► Margins are set
► Artwork matches the specified dimensions
High Resolution PDF Files Preferred
Artwork must be built to size and in CMYK color space. Vector artwork is best; convert fonts to outlines and flatten all layer and transparency effects.
Bleeds should be built in the file .125" for signs and posters, .25" for large format prints and at least 1" for banners.
Multiple designs should be sent in separate files.
If you must match a PMS color, please use that PMS color in your artwork and tell us what the color is (i.e. Pantone 103C).
We do not print metallics, or fluorescent, or reflective colors.
If your design requires a die-cut for a custom shape, provide a vector cut path and assign the path to a spot color and rename it "cut" in the swatches palette (a colored outline is not a die-cut).
If your design needs specific grommet, drill holes, or scoring, please mark it accordingly.
