What we offer

Frequently asked questions about our design services

We recommend saving as a PDF.
You may also send the file in the following types:  jpg, jpeg, tif, tiff, eps

We prefer that you send .PDF with embedded or outlined fonts. PDFs are easier to handle and will likely speed up your turn-around. Remember to add crop marks and flatten your files before uploading.

You should always start and finish your designs in CMYK color mode. If you send an RGB file, there is a chance that a color shift may occur and you may not be satisfied with your job.

Bleed must extend past the cut-line and will be trimmed from the product during the final cutting phase. When the image is required to extend all the way to the edge, bleed is needed to preserve the finished look and the quality of the final product. The bleed for standard products is 0.125” on all sides. Please keep all text at least 0.125” inside the cut-line.

Primarily used to intentionally overlap inks for a number of reasons, overprint can cause unexpected results. We suggest that you turn all overprint objects off before submitting your files.

When using a blue in your design, always make sure to leave at least a 30% difference in your Cyan and Magenta values. Blue is close to purple in the CMYK spectrum. Remember, use a low amount of magenta whenever using high amounts of cyan to avoid purple.

The Marketing Quarterback of Your Business

We like to use the analogy of being the quarterback for your business, when it comes to designing and printing your marketing materials.

What this means is, you can always lay out the ideas that you have in broad brushstrokes, and then let our in -house graphic design team do the dirty work for you.
