"Print-ready" artwork is artwork that has been fully designed and formatted to our specifications and requires no editing, modification, or proof-reading on our part before we print it.

Having customers provide print-ready artwork allows us to offer SAME DAY Printing backed by our SAME DAY Print Service Guarantee.


If your artwork is NOT print-ready
If the artwork you submit is not print-ready, our customer service department will contact you as soon as possible and let you know what the problem is. If you are able to re-submit artwork that is "print-ready" prior to that day's 2:00 PM (EST) cut-off time, our SAME DAY Print Service Guarantee would still apply.

If you are unable to re-submit print-ready artwork prior to 2:00 PM, your order will be put on hold and our SAME DAY Print Service Guarantee would not apply.

If you have any questions about "print-ready" artwork, please give us a call.


Definitions for Print-Ready Artwork

Acceptable File Formats
Artwork can be sent to us in .pdf, .psd, .tif. or high resolution .jpg
(300 dpi)

DPI
DPI is a measurement of resolution. 300 DPI is considered high-resolution and is well suited for printing. Artwork found on the Internet is typically 72 DPI and is considered low resolution. While low resolution artwork looks good on a computer screen, it does not print well.

Full-Bleed
Artwork with a full-bleed simply means that a background color (other than white) extends all the way to the edge of the printed page on your flyer or brochure.

If you have any questions about setting up your artwork, please give us a call.
