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

Make sure all bleeds extend one eighth of an inch beyond the edge
of the size of the finished document.

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
