General Guidelines

To enable us fully edit a file, we prefer eps files with all linked files and fonts included (To assure this, use the File/Package command in Illustrator or InDesign). All linked bitmaps must be flat files and 100-150 dpi at final print size.

 

Photographic Images

(raster/bitmap)
Images need to be fully setup, with bleed and crop marks, ready for output as we will be restricted to performing only Photoshop editing on files saved this way. We recommend bitmaps be flat TIFFs with LZW compression / 100-150 dpi at final print size. Print quality will suffer below this specification.

  • Placing a low quality raster image into an eps file does nothing to improve it's quality.
  • Color matching requires that Pantone colors to be specified within the files.
  • Projects that involve router or vinyl cutting require files in vector format.
  • Assume that any images copied off a webpage will not deliver the quality needed for large format printing.

If files are not supplied as requested above, require extensive color matching and/or other editing, then additional setup fees and time delays may be incurred.


Microsoft Office files are not preferred and, if submitted, will incur unpredictable setup surcharges, editing will be limited on our part, and quality of the output cannot be assured.

We cannot open Microsoft Publisher documents. (a page-layout program included in some versions of MS Office)
Publisher files must be supplied (saved/exported) as an eps with all fonts outlined and linked files embedded. Unpredictable setup surcharges may be incurred, editing will be limited on our part, and quality of the output cannot be assured.


We do not support Corel Draw. If you are using Corel Draw please save files as EPS with outlined fonts and all linked files embedded. Extra setup charges may apply and editing could be limited. All linked bitmaps must be flat files and 100-150 dpi at final print size.


If you have any trouble with it feel free to call 636.343.5454 and ask for your account manager.
