Production and turnaround times vary depending on your projects exact specifications, but here are some general guidelines to set expectations: 

  • 91% of offset/thermography jobs are printed within 72 hours of art approval.
  • Four color process printing typically takes between 5-7 days from artwork approval.
  • One color carbonless form printing with print-ready art can be turned around in 48 hours or less.

We request high resolution, Pantone correct files to achieve the best results. PDF’s are optimal, but we can work with most digital files.

We are proactive and committed to getting your art where it needs to be to produce a high quality image. 

Submitted files should meet the following requirements:

  • PDF, AI, and PSD files preferred
  • 300 dpi resolution or better
  • Pantone spot colors required in file
  • CMYK files required for digital and four color process printing

If your design has a bleed, we recommend a .125″ bleed past the cut line.

If your design contains a border, allow .25″ inside each cut line for optimal results.
