Print File Submission Check-List

*We prefer print ready PDF files.

  • BLEEDS Does the image or colour go to the edge of your page? If so, you need an extra 1/8" of that image or colour on all 4 sides of the page. 

  • CROP MARKS Please supply standard crop marks so we know where to trim your work.

  • SIZE Your artwork must be created to the exact finished size of the job (plus bleed).

  • FONTS All fonts should be converted to outlines. If you want us to edit your files, please supply the font as well.

  • 1-UP Provide your file 1-up only. We will impose your artwork for printing at the best economical value.

  • VECTOR This could be an Adobe Illustrator (.ai), Encapsulated PostScript (.eps) or Portable Document Format (.pdf) file with no bitmap/raster images present. 

This check-list represents many of the details that are required (critical) for your file to print correctly. Until they are met, your file is likely not “Print-Ready”. If you are submitting files regularly, you may want to invest in a pre-flight program such as Pitstop. Completion of these items will mean that your file will print as intended. We can take no responsibility for files that do not have all this important criteria met. In most cases you should allow extra time for a hard-copy or PDF proof to confirm that the order will print correctly. Rushing the order may lead to problems.

Submitting Files


Make sure the PDF is high resolution (300dpi or more) or Vector based. If you supply us with a low resolution PDF the output results may not be what you want. Images should be embedded and fonts either outlined or provided to us. 

Art Submissions

  • Any QE (Quick & Easy) product includes the typesetting of the imprint area(s) in one of our standard type faces. If not specified, Helvetica will be used.

  • Include your logo at no extra cost - provide a clean copy to scan or a vector PDF.

  • Base price includes first 2 PDF proofs. $15 per PDF proof thereafter.

  • Any of our standard QE bodies may be altered to your specifications. Additional art charges may apply unless you provide the artwork.
