FILE PREPARATION

FILE FORMAT

Our preferred file formats are .pdfs. You may send .jpegs, jpgs., .tiffs, and .eps files but for faster turnaround time please send a .pdf with embedded or outlined fonts as it is easier to handle.

Files must be in CMYK color mode and at 300 dpi resolution.

Templates and/or more information can be found on each product page under the “Templates” tab or “FIle Upload Notes” tab. 

BLEEDS

If there is any artwork that reaches the edge of the final product, then the file must have a bleed. Bleeds generally extend past the cut-line 1/16″ but can vary by product. Please refer to our templates for more accurate information.

FRONT AND BACK PDFS

If the artwork has two sides, please separate the files so that there is a “front” and “back” file. Please do not include both sides in one file.

DIRECT MAIL (BULK MAIL) TEMPLATES

For Direct Mail (Bulk Mail) postcards, please refer to the templates (located in each product page) to ensure that the indicia area and address areas are in the correct places and not being covered by any text or artwork. 

DATA FILE FORMATS (for mailing lists)

We accept csv (comma delimited) format only. On the csv file, the header columns should be labeled exactly as follows:

  • column A: FULL NAME
  • column B: COMPANY
  • column C: ADDRESS
  • column D: SUITE/APT
  • column E: CITY STATE ZIP CODE
