FLIGHT-READY ADOBE PDFs PREFERRED
Adobe InDesign (If version is newer than CS6, please save and submit file as .idml)
When saving PDF files, all fonts and images must be embedded in the files. Make sure PDF files
are high resolution (Print Quality) and contain 1/8 inch bleed extended beyond the trim size on all sides of your image. Make sure to include the bleed on the .pdf when creating it under Marks and Bleeds on the left (add .125 under bleed).
RESOLUTION AND PRINTING
Your artwork must be created at 300 dpi or larger.
If full bleed is required on artwork, make sure to add .125 on all sides of the artwork outside of the trim size. See layout requirements for exact dimensions.
Some PMS colors cannot be matched with 100% color accuracy. Minimize color issues by ensuring artwork is created and submitted in CMYK.
“Note”” RGB images and Pantone Colors will be converted to CMYK. Colors may shift in this process. We are not responsible for color changes when converting to CMYK.
LARGE AREAS OF BLACK
If artwork contains large areas of solid black use the following CMYK values to create a rich black – 60% Cyan, 40%, Magenta, 40% Yellow and 100% Black. Small text and rules should be built with 100% Black and NOT registration black.
Images used should be 300 dpi or larger and a minimum of 1MB in size. Avoid using images from the internet or
websites. These are usually low resolution images.
SUBMITTING ACTUAL FILES
When submitting working files instead of a PDF, make sure images are linked and the layout, images and fonts are included. Or simply use the “collect for output” option to package all necessary files into one folder. Make sure to compress files before uploading to our FTP site.
