File Formats

Applications

We can work with files created in the following native applications:

  • Adobe Illustrator®: CS6 or earlier (Guidelines Below)
  • Adobe Photoshop®: CS6 or earlier (Guidelines Below)
  • QuarkXpress®: 9.0 or earlier

Colors

All files should be in Pantone or CMYK color mode. Please provide either the Pantone Colors or mail in a colored sample.

Resolution

For optimum print quality, we suggest all raster images (Tiff, jpeg, photoshop files, etc) meet our resolution guidelines of 300-450 for photos and 600-1200 dpi for line-art. Images that don't have enough resolution may appear blurry or pixilated when printed. This guideline is for images placed at 100%.

Adobe Photoshop® Guidelines

Scanned Images

PLEASE NOTE: WE CANNOT WORK FROM FILES PASTED IN A WORD DOCUMENT.

I really enjoy your cards. We used to send out 'thank you' letters and this saves me so much time! And as an added bonus the cards say it all!
