How to prepare artwork for printing How to prepare artwork for printing

Many files sent to us cannot be output exactly as delivered. File problems (ranging from missing fonts to incorrect page size to overprint issues) can result in anything from a minor inconvenience to delays, cost overruns, unanticipated proofing rounds, late-stage design changes or even unhappiness with a finished job.

The best way to avoid any issues is to factor in printing from the earliest possible point in the planning stage. Prepress doesn’t have to start when you deliver the file to us – it starts when you begin planning your project. Preparing printing specifications(specs) may seem like a distraction from actual designing, but if done early and correctly, we can become your best ally in making exactly the project you envision, on-spec, on-time and on-budget.

When in doubt, consult us! Our experienced and knowledgeable staff is always available to assist you with any questions you may have.
