1. What type of files can I SEND to Design One Printing?

The following files are accepted:  .jpg, .jpeg, .psd, .tif, .tiff, .eps, .ai, .pdf, and .png. 
 We recommend that you send .PDF because these files are easier to handle and will likely speed up your turnaround time.

2. What color mode should my files be?

 All files should always start and end in CMYK color mode.

3. What resolution should my file be?

 We only accept 300 dpi files and no less.

4. How should I set up my bleed and crop marks?

 Please keep all text and anything you do not want cut at least .125″ away from the cut line.
 When sending a .psd or .pdf file, please be sure you include crop marks so we can cut the job correctly.

5What is (4 over 1) or (4 over 4)?

◘ 4/1- Four over one = Full color on the front & 1 color on the back.
◘ 4/4- Four over Four = Full color on both the front & back.
◘ 4/0- Four over zero = Full color on the front, but no color on the back.

6. Can I submit a front and back in the same file?

No. We are  specifically set up to process one side at a time, and this requires that each side of a job must be on a separate file.

 7. Should I send a proof or sample file?

When sending artwork, do not send extra files, like proofs or samples, because
they might get printed. Only send the files you need printed.

8. What is rich black and how can I get it?

Rich black is an ink mixture of solid black, 100% K, with additional CMY ink
values. This results in a darker tone than black ink alone. If you print black
alone as 100% K, the resulting black may not be as dark as you might like.
We recommend using C 60 M 40 Y 40 K 100 This will give you a deep, dark, rich black.

9. How you can make sure your blues do not come out purple?

When using a blue in your design, always make sure to leave at least a 30% difference in your Cyan and Magenta values.
100% C 100% M 0% Y 0% K

Blue is close to purple in the CMYK spectrum. Remember, use a low amount of magenta whenever using high amounts of cyan to avoid purple.


Example: C-100 M-70 Y-0 k-0

10. How do I get a grayscale image in a CMYK document?

Grayscale images that are converted to CMYK will have a color shift in the final
print. That shift may be green or yellow.
Always check the CMYK values of your grayscale in the final CMYK document. If there are other values other than K in your grayscale image, there is a chance that the color will vary. To eliminate all values other than K, use your Channel Mixer (adjustment layer) in Photoshop, then click “Monochrome” and adjust accordingly.
