Sending files or media

We can accept files on any of the standard media used today. The most popular by far are CDs or DVDs. We can read both Mac and PC formatted disks. We still accept Zip Disks (100 and 250 megs), Jaz disks, and the lowly 1.44 meg diskette as well.

Please do not send us e-mail attachment over 4 Megs. If you would like to transfer files over 4 Megs to us electronically, please call us and we will give you the information you need to use our FTP space. If you are using the Mac OS and do not have FTP software, you can download Fetch (OS 8.5, 9, or X) or Transmit (we prefer Transmit but it works only in OS X). If you are using Windows, you may be able to transfer the files using your browser or by using WS FTP.

Below is a list of common problems we find in jobs that are submitted to us. Please check your files carefully.

  • No bleed- If you job bleeds, we need .125 inch bleed on all sides of the page on which it bleeds.
  • Spot colors- If your job is CMYK, please make sure that all the files are CMYK, not spot or RGB.
  • Low res photos- 300 dpi is the required resoution for high resolution printing. For a large-format poster it is 180 dpi. This is the output resolution. For instance, if you place a 300 dpi file then enlarge it 200 percent, it is no longer the correct output resolution.
  • Fonts- Make sure that all the fonts used in the job are included. If you submit a PDF, make sure they are embedded. Also make sure that any fonts used in any graphic support files are included with the job.
  • PDF version- If your job is CMYK, it is safe to use PDF/X-1a:2001 when you create your PDF. It makes sure your PDF meets the minimum requirements for CMYK output and will warn you if there is a problem.
  • Transparancy- Take the time to understand how the program you are using handles transparancy and how transparancy and flattening work. Good info can be found in the program's Help system.
