  • The following application files must be provided using special utilities within the applications for preparation for a printer:
    Publisher .....................“Pack and Go”
    InDesign ......................“Package”
    or create a PDF file (see above). If the special utilities are not used, then an additional charge will be required.

  • Full color images and photos to be printed in 4-color process must be prepared in CMYK. Spot colors should be identified as Pantone colors. Files that require color conversions and/or changes will have an additional charge.

  • A hard copy sample of the document is required so we will know what your document should look like. Multi-color documents should be submitted as separations. If a printed sample is unavailable, an additional charge may be required.

  • Microsoft Office applications cannot be color separated within the application. If the documents are to be printed on a printing press, we must use special procedures and tools to separate these files, and that will require an additional charge. We will attempt to match the colors as close as possible.
