Information on Printing:
Setting up your file: We can print and finish a variety of sizes. Keep in mind that we will be trimming at least 1/8” on three sides and will need 1/4” bleed or more for full bleed pages. Page size needs to be representative of your finished print size (11 x 8 ½, 6 x 9, 8 ½ x 11, etc.) and to allow for bleed and trim margins.
Addressing Color: Keep in mind that any color on a page, even one character, makes the entire page color and will be printed as a color page. That also applies to images scanned or computer generated. If your desired end result is grayscale then scan images using appropriate settings or convert them before inserting them into your document. This is especially important if you have grayscale, color, and black & white pages in your layout.
If you are using Quark or Illustrator, remember to embed all fonts and include all linked images.
We prefer a PDF format, so when converting your file be sure to use the correct print quality settings.
We also work with other file formats as well.
Paper Options: We use 60# acid free white and off-white papers as well as 80# white coated stock. Other papers are available upon request.
