File Preparation Tips...

Tips on preparing your files for printing:

1. Have you supplied all the necessary files?
Include all image and graphic files imported into your document. Graphics that are missing may remain visible but will output in low resolution and look pixelized and fuzzy. Also please supply original and editable copies of all graphic files.

2. Have you supplied the necessary fonts for your job?
Please be certain to provide both printer and screen fonts. If printer fonts are missing we will not be able to create films for your job.

3. Have you converted all your colors from RGB to CMYK?
Your images may print black and white or with inaccurate color if you neglect to convert images.

4. When converting a Pantone color to CMYK, have you verified that the CMYK color is equivalent to the original color? Some Pantone colors are outside of the CMYK color space and appear different when printed as process color. View your screen after conversion for a rough idea of how that color will appear. For an exact determination, view a Pantone color conversion guide.

5. Have you scanned or saved your images at the correct resolution?
Set scanning resolution at 300 (DPI) dots per inch for pictures and 800 DPI for Line Art.

6. Are your document bleeds set up correctly?
Make sure all bleeds extend one eighth of an inch beyond the edge of the size of the finished document.

7. Have you sent us a mock-up of your document?
It is always useful to have a mock-up as a guide for printing. A PDF e-mailed with your job or even a laser proof faxed to Rogers Printingcan serve as such a guide.

8. If you are mailing us a disk or art, have you labeled everything ?
Clearly write your name, address and phone number on all diskettes, art or proofs that are sent to us. It is also helpful to provide us with a checklist of everything you are sending.

Following the above checklist helps reduce potential problems, accelerates job delivery and avoids additional fees associated with pre-press problems. However, donít worry if you donít do all these steps or donít understand how to do them. We can work with any file you provide. Just submit whatever you have: we will pick up the phone and call you if we have questions.
