File Preparation Help

Although we prefer that files are submitted in Adobe Acrobat with proper resolution and bleed settings, there are a number of other file formats we will accept. We've provided the information below to help you properly set-up your design files for print. Checking your files for mistakes can greatly reduce the time your job spends in pre-press, and can prevent your job from being put on hold.
