All text embedded in EPS or PDF fonts need to be embedded or converted to outlines before importing into your page layout program to avoid font printing errors.
All documents that have any image that extends to the edge of the file need to have bleed. This is an extension of the image that falls past the documents trim edge, 1/8″ bleed is standard. Many document layout programs provide a section for applying bleed past the documents edge.
Our forms generally need lockup for printing, which is a 3/8″ space where there is no object(s) on the file. The location of this lockup gap is determined by the particular press your document will be printed on. Please ask your sales associate for more information regarding the specifics for your particular job.
Please provide your sales rep with a list of all variable data to be printed. Separate each piece of data with one line return and make sure to let us know the final number of lines so that nothing gets left out. Data should be saved in CSV Microsoft Excel format. If you have any questions, please feel free to contact us.
A PDF with embedded or outlined font is the easiest type of file for us to work with. Also, please convert all RGB colors to CMYK or Pantone spot colors when applicable. Exporting your file in a PDF/X-1a format will do this for you.
