Frequently Asked Questions
What is the quality like?
Our digital printing image quality is comparable to all other traditional lithographic offset printing.
Can you print from film or camera ready artwork?
No. Our production process is completely digital. We only print from digital files.
Can you match my color exactly?
We work hard to match your color. The digital printing process is designed for CMYK inks. Some Pantone colors are often difficult to match in a CMYK environment.
Can you print RGB?
No. RGB are not standard printing colors.
What paper can run on your presses?
Our presses can print on any substrate from an onion skin of .0024 in. to board in thickness up to .012 inches.
Can I proof my files before going to press?
Absolutely. All jobs include a one-off color proof from our Ricoh press on the final paper and ink colors or a digital PDF proof.
What size files can we email?
If you have a relatively small file that you think can be emailed, you can compress it using a utility such as StuffIt, PCZip, or other compression software and email or FTP it to us.
What do you need besides the document in a file?
The document itself plus all the files that are referenced or used in the document (placed art, fonts, etc.). Please send along the latest, approved laser print or PDF of the content.
What's the best way to save images?
300 dpi tiffs are recommended for most page layout programs to produce the highest quality printing. Remember to add bleed area is your image is to bleed off the edges of your page.
What file formats do you recommend for printing?
All Native files and Press Ready PDFs. Native means it is the cleanest form of that application's file, i.e., not Quark EPS or PostScript files. We can accept any number of page layout files; we are not limited by our equipment or software, but we do prefer Adobe Cretive Suite files (InDesign, Illustrator, Photoshop).
