Vector graphics will ensure your lines and text are printed crisp and clear. JPEGs, PNGs, and GIFs may produce unwanted fuzziness around your text. When creating your PDF file(s), we recommend using the Adobe PDF/X-1a:2001 preset for best results. Please note: We do not accept RAW files.

Color Format:
All files are printed in CMYK (Cyan, Magenta Yellow, and Black). If files are submitted in RGB, color shifting may take place which may not conform to your company brand. If a specific PMS color is needed, please let us know when you submit the order and we’ll do our best to match the specified color(s).

In printing, bleed is printing that goes beyond the edge of where the sheet will be trimmed. Bleed is required if any image or text touches or extends past the document edges. For example, if you would like your business card background to be entirely green, you must bleed (or extend) the green color past the edge of the final size of your business card. This prevents a white line down one or more edges of your finished product, which are caused by very slight variations in printing and trimming. Please include at least 0.125” bleed on each side of your artwork.

Crop Marks:
Crop marks, also known as trim marks, are lines printed in the corners of your design to show the printer where to trim the paper. Trim / Crop Marks should be included to show the finished size of your artwork (i.e. where you would like the artwork to be trimmed). Always add trim/crop marks outside the image area.
