IMPORTANT: If you will be using Adobe Photoshop, Adobe Illustrator/EPS format, CorelDraw or Microsoft Publisher, you MUST use the free design templates we have available for download FOR THESE SOFTWARE PROGRAMS/FORMATS in the appropriate "Download Templates" section of our Design Guidelines page. This will ensure the least hassle possible when preparing your designs for plating, which will virtually guarantee quicker turnaround and accurate, sharp print results. These templates are already set in CMYK mode, at the correct bleed design size, margins and resolution. All you need to do is open the template and start designing. Please make sure you save the template with the same settings originally embedded, but feel free to RENAME each file to your liking. Renaming won't change any settings unless you allow that to happen.
Publisher can be tricky when it comes to exporting files into the format we need. For example, TIFF's are not properly exported, no matter what you try. You just can't get the right resolution with Publisher when exporting to TIFF format. The best advice we have for Publisher users is leaving the file as is (in .pub format), and zipping them (or stuffing them) AS IS. We can use publisher files to convert to print-ready format for a fee of $10 per side, but you must also upload (in the same zip or stuffit archive) all fonts used in your designs in case we don't have them. They MUST be PC fonts, as we do not use MAC's....
Feel free to contact us via email at email@example.com if you're still not clear on preparing your MS Publisher files.
