Print-Ready Submissions

Send Us Your Print-Ready File Submissions Online

Print-ready files must be complete–requiring no additional page design, typesetting, or editing before printing. The printed page will look exactly like the file submitted. Our experts are ready to answer any of your questions! Please contact us if you need further help. Below, you’ll find some guidelines for submitting print-ready files, and the types of files we can accept.

File Types and Submission

Acceptable File Types:

Our workflow is PDF based. For the most effective submission, send hi-resolution PDFs. We will also accept files as Adobe InDesign, Photoshop, or Illustrator. Files created using a word processor such as Microsoft Word®, or a desktop publisher such as Microsoft Publisher®, may require additional work to make them print as you desire.

File Submissions

You can send us your digital file by uploading it directly to our servers here. You can also mail or drop off a DVD/CD, flash drive, or email if the file size is smaller than 10 MB.

Document Setup


A bleed is any printed area that runs off the edge of a page. The standard amount is .125” (1/8”). Be sure to include bleed if providing a hi-resolution PDF.


The quality of the final printed image or illustration is a direct result of the quality of the image file. To ensure the best quality, all images should have a resolution of 300 dpi (Dots per Inch). If you insert an image and then enlarge it within your document, you are decreasing its resolution. Illustrations should be kept in their native vector file, such as an Adobe Illustrator file or Encapsulated PostScript (.eps), if possible.


If submitting files that are not PDFs, it is important to include all the fonts that you used with your project. Without the fonts, the layout and design of your project will most likely be changed.
