*Recommended Print Requirements:
1. All documents and images should be at 300 DPI (a.k.a. pixels per inch/dots per inch). This resolution results in you getting a crisp; clear and professional look to your order.
*NOTE* It is NOT recommended that you use graphics or pictures downloaded from the Internet.
Pictures on websites or screen shots of websites are only be 72 DPI, as that is the resolution of
a computer monitor and a web standard for websites. A 72 DPI graphic will appear fuzzy or pixilated
2. For best color matching results please use a CMYK color profile for color copies. This will help (but not guarantee) that your copies will be as close as possible to your desired colors. If there are concerns over matching a specific color, please use the Comments section of our order form to relay that concern to us.
3. Please upload a PDF file if possible.
4. Margins - Our printers by default leave a 1/8” white margin on all sides. So please design your document with at least a 1/8” to 1/4” border on all sides unless you want a full coverage bleed to the edges. In that case please follow the directions on bleeds below.
A bleed is the term used to describe the printing of a document with no white margins of the edges of the paper.
*NOTE* Our printers by default leave about a 1/8” white margin on all sides.
To Correctly set up you file for a bleed.
1. If printing an 8.5x11 or 11x17 document, please design your document to be at least
an 1/8” to 1/4” larger on all sides.
8.5 x 11 = 9.0 x 11.5 (for a 1/4” bleed)
11 x 17 = 11.5 x 17.5 (for a 1/4” bleed)
2. Then use crop marks to show is where to cut the document down to the correct size.
Please see the next page for a sample document with crop marks correctly placed.
To place crop marks look in your print setup for an area or tab called “Prepress” or
“Marks & Bleeds”. Graphic design programs like Illustrator, InDesign, Freehand, and
Corel Draw should all have a printing or page/printing setup option similar to this.
*NOTE* Programs like Microsoft Word will not have an option for full Bleeds.
*NOTE* Simply making your background color or image fit the entire 8.5x11 or 11x17 page
does NOT make your document a full bleed, it will still have the 1/8” white margin.
