LET US HELP YOU
Here are some quick tips that will help you with your digital file.
Setup Setup your document to the size that you would like it printed before you start to work on it. This will save you future headaches when printing. Some things will not look right when printed "scaled to fit". It is always best to start out with the correct size.
Check Resolution When images come from the internet or look blurry on screen they will most likely print small or blurry. When printing, you want to look for high resolution images that are the size you need or larger. A good resolution for images is between 150 to 300 dpi.
PDF PDF's are the preferred file type. Please “Save As” or “Export” your file as a .pdf format (especially Microsoft Word files). This will reduce most formatting errors and allow us to correctly print your document. You can also bring in the original format in case you need to make any last minute changes.
Stop by If you have any questions on how to best set up your document, please stop by. We are more than happy to give you some pointers to avoid setup mistakes; saving you time and future headaches.
Plan for Bleed Bleed is when you would like the printing to go all the way to the edge of your document. On the sample shown here the red lines and black crop marks indicate where we will cut. The blue box is the margin line. All text must be inside the blue margin line (this will prevent any noticeable shifting or items being cut off). The margin (blue) needs to be set to at least 0.25 inches within the cut line (red) for safe printing. The bleed (color extended past the cut line) needs to be at least 0.125 inches (0.25” being optimal) past the cut line (red) for a full bleed cut. Our machines do not print full bleed on standard size paper. The page printed on will need to be larger than your finished product. For example: an 8.5x11" full bleed print would need to be set up as a 9x11.5" document and printed on an 11x17" sheet of paper.
For front to back printing, keep in mind there will be a shift when printing on the opposite side of the page. Please plan for all margins to be at leat 0.25”.
