FAQ

What type of images should I use in my project?
If you are scanning the images yourself from photographs or providing files from a digital camera, it is best to save them in .tiff format at 300dpi or greater. This format is optimal for preserving the original color and sharpness of your image.

What is a “Bleed” and when do I need it?
Bleed is the term for printing that goes right to the edge of the paper. There are many different configurations of bleed with differing requirements dependent on the type of project.

How do I know if my file is ok to print?
If you are not sure that your file will work, you can send it to us and we will examine it to see if there are any major flaws which would present issues with quality and/or printability. We can make recommendations so that you can fix your document, or in most cases our prepress department can make the adjustments for you. Major adjustments requiring significant time on our part will be billed on an hourly basis.
