Welcome, Designer!

Here you will find our specs that need to be followed in order to get you the best quality possible! Under Specifications is a detailed explanation of what we need from you. This includes: how to name a file, what resolution the file needs to be, margins and bleeds, and more. If you are unsure of what a term means or how to meet the specifications, we have developed an FAQs/Glossary to help clarify. If you do not see your question or term listed, please contact your customer service representative. We also have some helpful guides at the bottom of this page to help get you started!

Under Electronic Pre-Press Settings you will find a list of programs. When you select the program that you’re using, a download of the settings and a user guide will start. If you do not see the program you’re using, please contact your customer service representative.

Because your internet security is very important to us, we ask that you transfer your files to us using our InSite file transfer and online proofing system, unless otherwise told.

Below are instructional PDFs for transferring your files to us. For your convenience, you can also use the InSite system to access your processed files online. If you do not have your InSite login information, please contact your customer service representative.
