Q: What kind of files do you accept?

Better way, if you sure that do everything correctly, send us print-ready high-resolution Pdf-files. Files must have a 3 mm (0.125") bleed and 3 mm of margins,should have a images resolution of 250..350 DPI at full print size, should be converted to CMYK (desirable according to ISO Coated v.2 profile (FOGRA 39) with TIL=300..320).
Also, we accept artwork in any popular DTP applications: Adobe InDesign, Adobe Illustrator, Adobe Photoshop, Adobe Framemaker, QuarkXPress and Corel Draw.
As well, we accept Microsoft Word and Microsoft Publisher Documents, but in some case may be extra charged for prepress.

Q: What is a bleed?

A bleed is a term that refers to the printed artwork that extends outside the trimmed edges of a piece. This ensures that the final product is not left with white edges that occur as a result of mechanical inconsistencies.
In the diagram, the background of the file would extend to the blue line (the bleed). The final printed piece will be cut at the red line. All information on the piece must be contained within the green line.

Q: What are margins?

Margins refer to what we like to call the "safe zone". Margins should be at least 3 mm (0.125") in from the trim line of the document. Keeping all information inside the margins is vital to ensure that nothing important gets cut off. (See the diagram above.)
