Artwork you submit needs to be in a specific format and resolution for us to move forward with printing your files, however, we understand that understanding how the different artwork is submitted, what the difference between "resolution" and "image size" are, and all that other crazy graphic designer and printer terms that really just don't make much sense to us normal folks - We've created this form for you to just submit your artwork to us and we'll look it over and make sure it's ready for printing!
1. What type of files can I send to Capital City Printing?
We recommend saving as a .PDF
You may also send the file in the following types: jpg, jpeg, psd, tif, tiff, eps, ai, and png
We prefer that you send .PDF and .EPS files with outlined fonts. These files are easier to handle and will likely speed up your turn-around. Remember to add crop marks and flatten your files before uploading.
2. What color mode should my files be?
If you send us an RGB file, there is a chance that a color shift may occur and you may not be satisfied with your job. Always send CMYK Files.
3. What resolution should my file be?
Low resolution files may be printed as is or will be placed on hold until we receive new files, slowing your turn-around. Always use 300DPI when sending files for best print results. WEB IMAGES WILL NOT WORK.
4. How should I set up my bleed and crop marks?
Bleed must extend past the cut-line and will be trimmed from the product during the final cutting phase. When the image is required to extend all the way to the edge, bleed is needed to preserve the finished look and the quality of the final product.
Please keep all text at least 0.125" inside the cut-line.
- The bleed for Standard Products is 0.125".
- The bleed for Booklets and Presentation Folders is 0.25".
- If you need a template please tell a representative and we will send one right away.
5. Can I submit a front and back in the same file?
No. We are now specifically set up to process one side at a time, and this requires that each side of a job must be on a separate file. Not separating files will cause delays and you might have to send the files again. Remember to separate the pages of your .pdf files as well.
If you have an other questions please don't hesitate to ask!
