To ensure your orders are processed in the fastest time possible with the least amount of problems, please use the following guidelines when preparing data files for output.
APPLICATIONS: Photoshop, Illustrator, InDesign, QuarkXpress, Powerpoint and Acrobat PDF in either MAC or Windows formats.
Files should be sized at 100% output size. If files are provided at 1/2 or 1/4 output size, be sure that the files are proportionately scalable to the final output size. A supplied hard copy proof of each file is always recommended.
All non vector placed or linked files, ie., tiff, psd, eps or jpeg files must be provided at least at 100 dpi at their full output size. For example: a 12" x 18" tiff file placed in a 20" x 24" poster graphic must be provided at 100 dpi at it's full output size of 12" x 18". If the tiff file to be placed is provided at half size (6" x 9") then the file must be supplied at 200 dpi to achieve full resolution at 100 percent output size of 12" x 18".
Non-vector (Raster) files containing text 12 point or less should be provided at 300 dpi at full output size

Please provide editable files when possible.
For graphics that require bleed, please provide at least 1/4" bleed all around live area.
