Select your files to be uploaded.
Please compress files with appropriate compression applications. You can then copy and paste your file(s) onto the file window(s). You will not be able to read, delete, or overwrite files that already exist.

Prior to uploading your files refer to the following file upload check list to minimize turn around time and avoid additional prepress charges.

Preferred file format: Adobe PDF with the appropriate color format, size, bleeds, resolution and fonts embedded. Acceptable file formats include Adobe Illustrator, Photoshop, Indesign, and Quark for both Mac and PC.

  1. Print your own laser separations to achieve the expected results for spot colors
  2. Include all "linked" graphics in proper color format and resolution
  3. Include all fonts if not embedded
  4. Send laser proofs or mock up when possible
Upon completion of your uploaded files, our output department will be notified.

Your file begins to upload as soon as you click "Send my Files". Remember that not all browsers will indicate that the file(s) are uploading. We recommend Firefox on Mac or Windows and Explorer on Windows as two that do show you the progress of the file. However, all browsers will work, some just may not show progress. Remember, the upload speed depends on a number of factors, including the load on the server, your line speed and the size of the file. We recommend that you send you files before 3:00 pm Eastern or after 7:00 pm as that is the busiest time for internet traffic.
NOTE: YOU MAY ONLY HAVE 1 (ONE) PERIOD (DOT) IN ANY FILE NAME. IF YOU USE MORE THAN 1 (ONE) PERIOD (DOT), YOU WILL CRASH THE SERVER AND BE RESPONSIBLE FOR ANY CHARGES THAT OUR HOST BILLS US, PLUS ANY AND ALL ADDITIONAL COSTS.

Please note that files of types other than .pdf, .zip, .sit or .sea will NOT be accepted. We do this for 3 reasons:
  • Compressed files are highly resistant to corruption
  • Compressed files of these types are highly resistant to viral infection
  • Compression software allows the segmenting of files.
