Back To Custom Art Guide ยป

Size

Submit artwork at 8.5" W X 11" H (this includes a 1/8" bleed).

See below for product dimensions

Color Options

4 color front / 4 color back = CMYK inside and outside
4 color front / 1 color back = CMYK front, 100% Black or grayscale back

Note: RGB color is not acceptable and must be converted to CMYK before being submitted for print.

Black Values: In order for CMYK black to appear dark and saturated ("rich"), you will need to set your CMYK values accordingly: Rich Black = 40, 30, 30, 100

Resolution

300 dpi (dots per inch). Start with a quality image with the highest possible resolution. Avoid sizing images up, as image sizing can result in a loss of image quality. Photos taken off the web, pulled from PowerPoint or taken with a digital camera with less than 2.4 mega pixels do not contain enough image resolution and will print blurry and pixilated. Avoid clip art images.

Fonts

Fonts should be converted to paths (outlines) if possible. We are not able to guarantee we can use your provided fonts as we are Macintosh-based using the Adobe Font Library of fonts. PC fonts are not always compatible with our system. If there are font compatibility issues we will match your font with the closest font match to the font you submitted.

File Formats

Submit all working files with outlined fonts and linked images. We accept working files in Adobe Acrobat (pdf), InDesign CS, Illustrator CS and PhotoShop CS formats.

Guidelines for Submitting Images and Logos when Customizing Stock InfoBrochures

Submitting Images

Client submitted logos and photographs must be approved for image quality when submitting them to be used to customize existing Outreach product designs by our designers.

Email images and logos to your Outreach Specialist for review.

Image Requirements

Quality photo requirements are 300 dpi, CMYK images with a reasonable image size (approx. the size of a standard 4" X 6" photo). RGB images are not acceptable. Images downloaded from the web are also unacceptable as they do not contain the print resolution required for print products.

Logo Requirements

We accept logos created in the following formats:
Vector formats (spot color): .ai, .eps, .pdf
Raster formats (300 dpi and CMYK color): .tif, .psd, .pdf

Note: Vector formatted logos are preferred.
