MS Office & Adobe Acrobat (.pdf)
We recommend using Microsoft Office and Adobe Acrobat (.pdf)
files for photocopies only. For information on tools to use for
press output, see Tips: Layout Tools.
For Microsoft Office and Other Files: Send both the screen and printer fonts
for your project.
For Adobe Acrobat (.pdf) Files: Embed the fonts when you create the
Layout and Graphics
Avoid using graphics with a resolution less than 300 dpi.
Allow at least .25 inches of
margin in your document. This allowance is the
non-printable area where the copier grips the paper
to pull it through the machine.
Files and Disks
When you name the files, be
SURE to include the correct file extension (e.g., word.doc,
powerpoint.ppt) so we know what type of file you are sending.
You can send your files to us on Zip disk,
floppy disk, or CD.
Only Use Stuffit!,
WinZip, or other compacting utility if you need to
reduce the file size to fit on a disk or to send it via email.
there are no extra files on the disk (to avoid confusion — and
so we only print what you want!).
Getting Your Files and Documents to Zip
- If your file is smaller than 10MB,
send it as an attachment to an email to: firstname.lastname@example.org.
We have a 10MB size restriction on emails with attachments.
- If your documents are saved on a disk or CD, give us a call and we'll
pick it up. Or, if you want to get out of the office for a bit,
bring it in yourself.
Be sure to include a printout (at 100% of the final
output) with the colors, bindery, and folding information clearly marked.
