File Formats We Accept
We are happy to accept all industry-standard graphic file formats, including Adobe Photoshop, Microsoft Publisher, PDF, TIFF, EPS, and JPG. We regularly work with other file formats as well, so please don’t hesitate to contact us if you don’t see your preferred file format listed here.
CMYK Mode Explained
CMYK stands for Cyan, Magenta, Yellow, and Black (the K stands for “key,” which is black). The process involves combining varying amounts of cyan, magenta, yellow, and black ink to produce a full spectrum of color.
Additional Color Quality Info
Light can have a significant effect on the appearance of a color. A printed color can look quite different when viewed in fluorescent lighting compared to sunlight. Similarly, colors on your computer monitor can look different under different lighting conditions. For best results, try to keep your work environment’s lighting as consistent as possible.
In printing, your products are often printed on a larger sheet than the final product, then cut to size. If you have colors on your product that stretch to the edge of the document (or “bleed” off the side of the paper), it’s best to let those colors stretch, or “bleed” past the edge of the product size. That ensures your colors go all the way to the edge of your document.
Image Resolution Requirements
Resolution is measured in dots per inch (DPI). The more dots per inch, the sharper your image will be. For printed products, the minimum resolution is typically 300dpi.
