How do I place my order for printing?
You should prepare an e-mail stating your specifications, provide a fax number, a phone number, your shipping address, and attach your artwork file to your e-mail. We will then fax to you a proof copy of what we received along with a cover sheet that will repeat your specifications. This cover sheet provides you a total price for your order including shipping charges and has an entry space for you to provide to us your payment information.
What type of computer files can I submit for the printing process?
Submission of your artwork layouts are acceptable in the following electronic formats for MAC and/or PC:
• Adobe Acrobat (up to 8.0)
• Adobe Illustrator (up to CC)
• Adobe In Design (up to CC)
• Adobe Portable Document Format (pdf)
• Adobe Photoshop (up to CC - for full color printing only using PSD format)
• Corel Draw (up to X5)
• EPS Format
MICROSOFT WORD AND MICROSOFT PUBLISHER FILES MUST BE CONVERTED TO PDF
Low resolution .jpg and .tif files are usually not suitable for high quality printing. Font substitution will occur when fonts have been used that we do not have on our systems. If you have used unusual fonts, you will need to send font files with your document.
How do I know what my printed products will look like?
Your printing products will look as good as or as poor as the quality of the ready-to-print artwork or hard copy layouts that you submit to us. All camera ready copy should be crisp black color on white paper and should be printed on a high resolution printer. If you have submitted ready-to-print artwork to us in an electronic file, we will print this out on a high resolution laser printer and fax or email a .pdf or high resolution .jpg proof copy to you. Many times you can use an existing printed piece for your camera-ready copy. If you choose to do this, you must examine the copy closely for weak print areas or very thin lines as these have a tendency to not reproduce well. If the quality of your submitted layouts is not up to standard, we will notify you of this and get your signature approval to proceed.
Do you guarantee the printed products?
We offer a quality guarantee on all our products! All of the printing is inspected before delivery and compared to the ready-to-print artwork or hard copy layouts submitted by you. But remember, we can produce only as good a quality as what you submit for printing. If the quality of the layouts submitted for printing is not up to standard, we will notify you of the defect in your submitted layout and get your signature approval to proceed. YOUR SIGNED PROOF OR EMAIL APPROVAL is the approval from you that you have proof read for layout, spelling and design.
