|Adobe Illustrator 10.0.3: Convert all type to “outlines”; include all placed EPS or TIF files in the same directory; Note: the native file format for this version is PDF what may require conversion to EPS and, consequently, additional charges may apply; to avoid this charge, save the files as version 8.0 or earlier);|
|Adobe Photoshop 7.0.1: For 4-Color Process: files must be saved as TIF, EPS or BMP formats, in CMYK mode, at minimum resolution of 300 dpi with print size set at 100%; for silkscreen imprint: each color should be separated in one file with registration marks (and trapping, if applicable) and files must be Black-&-White, TIF format, in Bitmap mode (50% threshold) at 1200 dpi;|

|WE CAN RE-CREATE YOUR ARTWORK IN THE .EPS FORMAT from your Jpeg/Gif/Tiff/Word/Pub or other file type For $95 Layout/Cleanup Charge IF YOU CANNOT GET A DIGITAL FILE MADE.|
If you are not able to provide digital files, you may submit your artwork as “camera-ready“; that means it must be…
Black and white line art, color separated with all necessary traps and registration marks and output at 100% of the actual imprint size in PHOTO QUALITY reproduction.
Artwork from a laser printer, reproduced on office copiers and/or transmitted via fax is NOT camera-ready artwork.
We will accept Laser Quality output as camera ready only if it is 200% or larger of the actual imprint size (up to 8 1/2″ x 11″), black and white, color separated with registration marks and trapping (when applicable).
We can assist you in creating camera ready artwork for $65.00 per hour. If no layout instructions are supplied, we reserve the right to arrange copy and logos at our discretion. Approved proofs are required and they are final. We are not responsible for the quality of imprinted products produced from artwork that does not meet the above specifications. A layout proof approval form is supplied upon request (additional charges may apply). Additional approval will be required if the artwork does not comply with our requirements. Production time does not begin to run until the artwork proof approval form is acknowledged by you and faxed back to us.
These specs are subject to change without notice.
WE CAN RE-CREATE YOUR ARTWORK IN THE .EPS FORMAT FOR $95 IF YOU CANNOT GET A DIGITAL FILE MADE.
