Print-Ready File Setup
We accept files from the following programs:
Illustrator, .ai file with embedded images and outlined fonts. We will accept .eps but these will raster transparency and blends.
InDesign, .indd files must include linked images and fonts used.
Photoshop, .psd file, if using fonts it is best to export as a PDF file this will retain the vector format of the text producing clear and sharp text.
QuarkXpress, .qxp files must include linked images and fonts used.
PDF file is the #1 preferred format from any application. Be sure to export PDFs at High Resolution and include .125” bleed outside the die-line or trim area.
We have made available a PDF Distiller that you can select when exporting PDFs. This distiller will create a print ready PDF from adobe applications according to PFI’s print standards.

It is best not to supply .gif .png .jpg or .bmp files these tend to be low quality images used for websites.
