Will my document look the same printed as it does on my screen?
Not exactly, the colors tend to change a bit. If you want to get a better idea of how your document will look printed, you can request a proof.
What DPI should I set my document to?
Optimally, you should set your document to 300 dpi (dots/inch) at the size you want it to be printed to maintain fidelity.
What file type is best for submission?
We accept a wide variety of file types: .cdr .indd and .pub files are best for editing. If you do not need editing: .pdf .png .gif and .jpeg will work fine.
What colorspace should I use for photographs?
CMYK is the correct mode for print output. RGB is the correct mode for monitor display. When an RGB image is printed the image is converted first to CMYK (this conversion process does not in many instances match the color of the original). If color is important, and the intent is printed output, it is always best to work with CMYK files.
What are Pantone Colors?
The Pantone Matching System is your ticket to color accuracy. It is an international color language used by professional printers, publishers and packing professionals to insure the accuracy and control of output color. Most Desktop Publishing applications are equipped with Pantone Libraries. If you need to use a specified color in a document, such as your company logo color(s), Pantone Matching System is your ticket.
What about Microsoft Colors?
Many programs, such as Microsoft Word, only use RBG colors. Since output devices for printing use CMYK to designate color, prints made from these programs are likely to appear different on paper than they do on your monitor.
