*Preferred formats.
**Some font substitutions and margins may change, leading to imperfect layouts, so please use only if no other format is available to you. If you are having a spot colour job done, please send as one colour, not as CMYK or RGB.

Please always send an original or at least a PDF file, for our comparison purposes. We use both MAC and PC here. If we are required to make changes to your file due to errors, a minimum charge of $15.00 will be applied. If the errors are extensive or we need to recreate the file, the regular hourly rate of $50.00 will apply. All files must be provided to us with all fonts and pantone numbers supplied. We are happy to help if you have any trouble.

Business card layout is typically 8-up on letter size with .125" or .25" gutters and trim marks in registration colour. If you are designing in Photoshop, please be aware of the bleed required. We require a .125" bleed for trimming. If you would like to use another designer's work, please let them know of this page so that they may set-up their files to our specs.
