We charge no set-up fees for all print-ready artwork. What does print-ready mean? Basically it means your template/artwork is set-up and ready to go for print without our designers touching it. You upload your artwork, we send you a digital proof, you approve it, and we print it and ship it to you!
If your artwork is not “print-ready,” you will be charged design time. Print-ready artwork must be: Saved in the correct file format, be using CMYK, have embedded artwork, have all text converted, have the proper bleed (specified in our templates), and be thoroughly reviewed for spelling and placement errors.
Acceptable File Formats: Adobe Illustrator (.ai), Adobe Photoshop (.eps), Flattened and Compressed TIF (.tif), Portable Document Format (.pdf), High resolution JPEGs (.jpg, .jpeg).
Templates: When using scaled down templates, please adjust image resolution accordingly.
Colors: Please use CMYK. Pantone or other spot colors provided by our customers will be reproduced using CMYK equivalent. We do not guarantee color matching.
Fonts: Make sure your fonts are converted to outlines (converted to outlines for Illustrator and PDF, converted to "shapes" for Photoshop).
Images: No lower than 300DPI. Be sure to include or embed all of your placed/imported images.
