Tips for Submitting Art


If you will be providing your own files for printing, please review these helpful hints . . .

Document Size –

When creating your document, make sure it is the actual size and positioning for your printed piece. If your document folds, use the flat (unfolded) size. When making a catalog or booklet, please provide single pages at the correct size.

Include Bleed –

“Bleed” is anything that you want to print to the very edges of the finished product: a line, photo, illustration, background, etc., that will “run off the edge” of the paper. Please provide at least 1/8″ beyond the document edges where you want it to bleed. Be sure to include the bleed when making your PDF File.

Color Space –

Always work in CMYK (Cyan, Magenta, Yellow, Black) color space for offset and digital printing. RGB (Red, Green, Blue) is for web-based graphics. If your product will be printed using less than four colors, create your piece using SPOT Pantone® colors.
