When taking your design to the printer, always check for the following:
Design resolution is an important factor in creating high quality prints. For your printing requirements, the resolution must be 300 ppi (pixels per inch) or 300 dpi (dots per inch) or higher.
Add trim marks as the cutter’s guide when trimming the printed material. These are short horizontal and vertical lines at the corners of your image, and is usually placed on or outside the bleed area.
If your design extends until the edge of your paper in its finished size (trimmed), you must include a bleed to avoid unwanted white spaces during the trimming process. A bleed is made by overlapping the artwork and the trim margins in order to create an allowance.
To avoid accidentally cutting the important elements of your design, apply margins within your trim marks where all the elements of your design should be placed.
Always be sure we print your exact design by converting text into outlines. Alternatively, you may also provide us with the fonts you used so that your design will not be altered.
Text and Images
Go over your design before giving us the file for reproduction. Proofread your text and check your image sizes as editing finalized files will be laborious.
