Check out the answers to some of our most frequently received questions below. Don’t see what you’re looking for? Contact us right now and a friendly team member will be happy to assist you.
HOW DO I GET AN ESTIMATE?
You can fill out an online estimate request form, or call and talk with one of our team members.
HOW LONG WILL IT TAKE FOR MY ORDER TO BE COMPLETED?
Most jobs take 24-48 hours to complete once approval is received; though offset press projects take longer. If you’re working within a time constraint, let us know when you call for a quote. We can look at our print production schedule to ensure that you will meet your deadline.
DO YOU OFFER DELIVER AND PICK-UP?
Yes, we offer free local delivery and pickup of your projects within our main service areas.
WHAT FILE FORMAT IS PREFERRED FOR DIGITAL DOCUMENTS?
We prefer PDFs (Portable Document Format) with a minimum 1/8” bleed and crop marks. Most office and design programs allow you to save or export your files into a PDF format. Occasionally, the original file may be needed if artwork edits are required.
WHAT RESOLUTION DO MY PHOTOS AND GRAPHICS NEED TO BE SET TO?
Resolution should be set to 300 dpi. Pictures and graphics pulled from the internet are often low resolution, typically 72 dpi or 96 dpi. Avoid these graphics, as they will appear pixelated and blocky when printed. Also, save all photos in CMYK mode, not RGB when possible. Images saved in RGB mode may not print properly. If you are unable to save your image in CYMK mode, please let us know.
HOW DO I KNOW IF MY FONTS WILL LOOK CORRECT?
The best way to ensure your artwork fonts will print correctly is to send them as outlined objects in your original file. If your program doesn’t allow this, packaging or sending us the fonts will work as well. If you have a question about how to send your fonts properly, please call us and we’ll be glad to help.
