How should I save and send my files?

All photos should be saved at actual size or larger with a resolution of 300 dpi. Website images are generally not high enough resolution for a quality printed product.

PDFs should be saved at the highest resolution possible, preferably "press quality".

We have most industry software on the Mac platform and can convert most files to an adequate form if necessary.

We can accept most files via email - larger files should be uploaded to our ftp site. Contact us for file upload information.

If you're unsure, please don't hesitate to contact us before sending your files and we'd be happy to help!

What is the difference between spot and process colours?

A spot colour is a single ink colour that is mixed manually by the printer to an exact shade. A process colour is composed of varying percentages of the 4 process inks, Cyan, Magenta, Yellow and Black (CMYK). A spot colour is produced with only one pass of the press, whereas process colours can potentially require 4 passes to produce the same colour. Your specific project and budget will determine whether or not spot or process colour is recommended. Please contact us if you are unsure which method would work best for you.
