You've Got Questions, We've Got Answers

Can I upload multiple files? 

If you have multiple files, please put the files in ZIP format BEFORE uploading. Send your files via WeTransfer.com if you are sending a file larger than 100MB or need to submit your file at a date later than when you place your order.

 

What files do you Accept? 

Acceptable file types for upload are as follows: Hi-Res PDF.

 

What is bleed? 

If your artwork has background colors or images that should go all the way to the edge of the sheet when trimmed, then your artwork needs to include an extra 1/8” of image on all four edges beyond the trim. This extra image is called "bleed". It will be cut off, but having the extra image ensures that you do not end up with any pieces with a small white margin on one edge.

 

What is trim? 

Trim area is the final cut down, finished size of your piece.

 

What is clear area? 

All logos, type and other important images should stay a minimum of 1/8" away from the trim, to insure nothing accidentally gets trimmed off.

 

What are Margins?

While 1/8" is the clear area, professional printed pieces usually do not having type going all the way to the clear area. Recommended margins vary, and increase as the size of the piece increases. For example, the recommended margin on a business card is 3/16", while the recommended margin on a letterhead is 1/2". Margins are only a recommendation and are not required.
