Set up your files correctly
We accept the following file formats TIF, TIFF, JPG, EPS, PNG, AI, PSD, and PDF.
The maximum acceptable combined file size for all uploads is 75MB (megabytes).
All file formats must have a minimum of 350 dpi (dot per inch) resolution. The images designed for the web are done at a low screen resolution of 72 dpi. Print images need to be created at 350 dpi or there will be a huge drop in the image quality. Images will appear blurry or pixelated.
All color artwork and/or images must be provided in CMYK (cyan, magenta, yellow, black) color mode. All black & white artworks and/or images must be provided in grayscale color mode. Heavy black ink might cause smearing.
INCLUDE BLEEDING WHEN NECESSARY:
Bleed is the portion of the product that will be trimmed off when it is cut to the final size.
The purpose of a bleed is to continue a color, image, or design to the edge of the product. Due to the possibility of shifting in the trimming process, a bleed is required to ensure that a white line does not show on the edges of your product.
All critical elements (text, images, logos, etc.) must be kept at least 0.125″ inside the edge. Anything left close to edge may be cut off during trimming.
