TO INSURE QUALITY IN PROCESSING ORDERS:

We require the following procedures for all electronic artwork: *

     Files should be sent at 100% actual dimension of image requested.

     Indicate correct reading if the file does not contain type.

     Send only the image that requires a die: targets, crop marks and other unwanted page information should be left off.

     Have art in 100% black or a 100% spot color.

     Check image for unwanted screens: even 99% color will turn up with a screen on film.

     Convert type to outlines always, if possible.

     Avoid using lines too fine: 1 pt. for foil stamping

     Compress files by Zipping or Stuffing them.

* Files requiring modifications will incur additional charges at $75.00 per hour with a 15-minute minimum.

Dies will not be made until we receive a deposit.
