Color Matching:

We use the Pantone Formula Guide for color matching. For 4-color process color matching, a printed high quality sample must be furnished. We cannot match to inkjet or laser printouts.

Links & Fonts:

All linked, placed or embedded artwork must be supplied as a separate file in it’s native format. This is required for prepress purposes. Include all fonts used in your document. If text must be converted to outlines, keep in mind that it is no longer editable.

Artwork created using Photoshop:

Please provide original, layered (unflattened) PSD along with embedded or placed links. This gives us the ability to apply color corrections, separate vector art,or revise separations if necessary for improved print quality.

  • Convert all RGB colors to CMYK
  • Resolution must be at least 300ppi

Please do not use Photoshop to generate small text elements. Instead, link the Photoshop file to a program better suited to text layout (i.e.: Illustrator, Indesign)

Artwork by E-mail:

  • E-mails should be sent directly to the Art Dept.
  • It is helpful to stuff or zip files first as to compress the size of the E-mail and prevent any corruption that occurs when transferring artwork electronically.
