Illustrator (any version) is our preferred format. We can also work with InDesign, Photoshop, PDF (if done as press-ready quality). If necessary, we can also work with legacy Quark files. Files done in other formats (Word, PowerPoint, Freehand, &c.) must be exported as EPS, and will incur additional charges.
Art that has been optimized for the web is generally unsuitable for printing. It can be printed, but it will look lousy. If you are sending us data files or spreadsheets to be converted into formatted text, please be aware that all spelling, capitalization, punctuation and abbreviations will appear in the final output exactly as it appears in your data file. Proofread your data files carefully to avoid costly and time-consuming revisions.
A SPECIAL NOTE CONCERNING PROOFS
The proof you will receive from us is a production proof, not a design proof. It is for spotting and correcting errors we may have inadvertently introduced in the production (pre-press) phase. It is not intended as an opportunity to re-think the concept. Please try to make all your design decisions before you send the job to the printer for production. The proof you get from us will include significant amounts of pre-press work. Design changes late in the production process often mean that the pre-press work must be done over, can be astronomically expensive, and can blow serious holes in critical deadlines.
