We accept electronic artwork on CD, DVD and e-mail (file size permitting). We have an FTP site available, please call for log-in details.
Microsoft electronic files generally are not acceptable as output for print production. However, black-and-white files can be output from a high‑quality laser printer and then used as camera-ready artwork.
Camera‑ready art is artwork that can be scanned without further preparation or changes. Halftones (screens) will not photograph well and should be avoided. We will accept camera-ready artwork that is already separated or that includes black line work (or key lines) to separate each color. “Camera‑ready” art should be clean, black, and crisp on a smooth white background that requires little or no touch-up. (Original art or PMT's are best.) Artwork must be submitted 1/4 of the finished printed size (for large prints) or large enough to fit on 8.5″ x 11″ page size. Please avoid submitting artwork that must be enlarged more than 400%. If appropriate quality or size specifications are not met, an art charge will apply. This will be determined once artwork is received.
Drawings, letterhead, photocopies, business cards, faxes, and low resolution laser printed artwork that is not 1200 dpi are not considered camera‑ready artwork. (Recommendation: Black‑and‑white 1200 dpi laser prints at 200% larger than actual size to be imprinted).
Hard copies are not required on every order; however on the hard copies we receive we will review but will not proof against electronic art sent. We offer several types of proofs that can be done if needed (additional charges may apply).
If art requirements are not met, art time will be billed at $40.00 (X) per hour. Factory WILL NOT be responsible for charges due to “clean‑up” or “rework” deemed necessary to meet production standards.
$30.00 (C) per scan up to 8.5″ x 11″ size. For larger photos and transparencies/slides, call for quote.

The typestyle must be indicated, or it will be left to the discretion of the typesetter. Charges less than $40.00 will be processed without notification.
