Successfully Printing a Digital File

There are really only three elements you need to provide for us to successfully print from your digital files:

Your page layout document

The fonts used in your document

Any graphics used in your document

 

Page layout software includes QuarkXPress, Adobe PageMaker, Adobe InDesign, Microsoft Publisher, and CorelDRAW. Other software such as Microsoft Word can be used for simple one-color print jobs however, most print jobs benefit from the control and consistency provided by page layout software.

Please include all fonts used in your documents. We may have fonts of the same name, but fonts from different manufacturers may not have the same characteristics even if they share the same name. These inconsistencies can produce unexpected output. The only way to guarantee correct output is for us to use the same fonts as you did, so please include your fonts!

Please include any artwork or graphics used in your page layout software. There are many graphic file formats available, and each format was developed for a specific use. The file formats developed for use in the printing industry are the Tagged Image File Format (TIFF) and Encapsulated PostScript (EPS). Graphics in other formats will need to be converted to TIF or EPS.

Please see the Short Answers to Digital Questions section of our website for more details on properly preparing page layout files, fonts, and graphics.
