File Submission Specifications

This checklist will help you ensure that your files are properly set-up

DPI: Make sure ALL your files are set at 300dpi

Scale: This means the real world size. The size your file is set up as, will be the size

it will be printed. If your file is 6.2 x 9.6 inches, that is the size it will print on the page.

If you resize your file from say 6x9 to12x18 inches, make sure your dpi stays at

300dpi.

Borders: If you want borders (white space) around your image, please add this

yourself. Adding this space will add cost as we charge for the final size of the whole

print

Crop marks: Do NOT add crop marks. We will take care of this on our end.

Color space: AdobeRGB. Keep in mind: If your file is in sRGB, don't bother to change

it to Adobe RGB, simply leave it at sRGB. If it is in any other colorspace than sRGB

or AdobeRGB, please convert it to AdobeRGB

CMYK or RGB?:  Our printers can print from either color space. We prefer RGB.

Convert all fonts to outlines: Fonts are not universal. If you use a font on your

computer which we don't have on ours, we will have to convert it to a similar one,

which may not be to your liking. Always convert fonts to outlines before uploading.

Flatten Layers and convert to non-compressed jpeg: As long as there are to be no

further changes to your file, it is acceptable to convert it to a jpeg. You can send the

file as a tiff, pdf or psd, but not as RAW. This is considered an unfinished file.

If these instructions are out of your reach, we can convert all your files individually,

starting at $10/file, with a reduced rate for multiple files.

Cutting: Sometimes if we print your file on a piece of paper that is larger than your

file, we leave the extra white space on the page. We find this is useful while

transporting and handling the print. If you want this cut off, please instruct us to do so

on the File Upload page.

If you want to print many prints on one page and cut them down, you will need to do

this yourself. We can cut all these images down ourselves but will incurr cut

fee.

Important points to note


it may not be possible to scale your image file to exactly match a standard size (to fill

an 8x10 or 11x14 inch frame for instance) without either cropping out a portion of the

image or adding borders around the image area. Such steps are required when the

aspect ratios of the image in your file and the print size you desire are different.

we never crop, add borders to or resize your files unless explicitly instructed to do so.

Print jobs will not be processed when an incompatibility exists between supplied

image files and requested print size/dimensions until we consult with you regarding

the options described above.
