How to prepare your newsletter artwork for printing:
Before you upload your file, please be sure your files are saved as a high-resolution PDF file, which means it should be exported using the OPTIMIZED FOR PRESS from Adobe Acrobat® or use PDFX1A settings. If your artist has used transparency layers, you can overcome some problems by converting all elements to CMYK and removing all RGB and Spot Color elements and information from your file and then flattening all transparency layers. These preflights are availabe through Acrobat Professtional®. Be sure to give your file a final look before uploading. Once they file is uploaded, they are quickly processed.
Booklet pages are to be submitted as one, multi-page PDF file, where page one is always your front cover and the last page is always your back cover. Please DO NOT SEND SPREADS – THEY WILL NOT BE PROCESSED. The number of pages in your file must match your order. If you intend to have a blank panel, you must send a blank page in that page position. For example, If you are ordering a 8 page catalog and want the inside back cover to be blank, a blank page must exist at page seven. All pages must include 1/8″ bleeds making the pdf size as 8.75″x11.25″. You are unsure of any of these settings, contact our customer support department at firstname.lastname@example.org.
