For process color, please make all artwork CMYK. Spot colors or grayscale should not be CMYK or RGB.

All bleeds must be 1/8” inch beyond the finished size of the page.
Please keep any non bleeding objects 1/4” from edge of page.

Please include all artwork, fonts, and any special instructions with upload.
To avoid problems, use stuffit or zip to stuff your files into one file prior to upload.

It is recommended that all supporting artwork be:
    Vector files: .eps or .ai
    Bitmapped art: TIFF (.tif), Photoshop EPS (.eps), or Photoshop (.psd)
All supporting artwork should be 300 dpi at the size of the piece in the document.
Internet graphics are usually 72 dpi and RGB, not CMYK, and produce low quality artwork when printed.
