Prepare your art in the program that is best suited for the task. Illustrator® is a drawing program, ideal for logos, packaging, posters and single panel layouts. Photoshop® is a pixel based (raster) program that lets you size, color-correct and manipulate scanned images such as photographs and flat art. Neither is intended for multi-page documents. For that, use a page layout program such as QuarkXPress® or InDesign®
Despite all the advances in graphic software and printing, the adage, "garbage in, garbage out" still
applies. The better the original, the more latitude the printer has in achieving the results you want. Use photographs that exhibit the full tonal range. Don't convert a color photo to make a black and white reproduction, if a black and white original is available. Start with the best you can get because each step results in a generational loss in quality.

Welcome to our file upload area!
We are in the process of updating our file uploading system. Due to the limitaions of our new web hosting company, the max file size you can upload through our site currently is 25MB. If you need to submit a file larger than 25MB, please contact us and we will assist you.
We will have a new ftp and uploading procedure in place soon! Happy Holidays !
Helpful hints for uploading files :
Send your account representative an email alerting them to the fact that you uploaded a file, and let them know your Username on the FTP as well as the name of the file(s) you uploaded.
We receive a ton of files everyday. This will help us to match the files to the correct order more quickly. Since some of you use personalized logins, our graphics people have a hard time associating the User like "CorvetteDriver1" to the appropriate account.
Printer spreads or reader spreads? : Neither
We have software that will take the pages and automatically position the pages on the press sheet where we want them, depending on how we plan on running them. We prefer one file with the individual pages.
Don't forget to apply your bleeds! If you need help with this, don't hesitate to contact us.
We strongly recommend you zip or stuff you files before uploading. Especially if you are uploading fonts or if you are uploading multiple files.
