Graphic File Transfer
Midlands Printing Graphic File Transfer

Our preferred format for file submission is a press ready PDF file which provides a seamless transition from artwork to press and is not platform specific. Very often a simple phone call can answer all of your questions — our job is to make you look good!


Resolution and Color

Image resolution must be at least 300 dpi (dots per inch) at placed size.

All print ready files must be submitted in CMYK or spot color (PMS).

Convert RGB colors into CMYK to avoid any color shift that can occur during preflight.

Bleeds and Trims

Bleeds are required on all artwork where an image or a graphic extends beyond the trim. We suggest adding a 1/4″ to the total trim size of your printed piece — this will provide an 1/8″ margin on each side for the bleed.

PDF’s and Native Files

It is important to embed all fonts or convert fonts to outlines before creating your PDF. We also accept artwork created in professional graphic design software. When providing native files, package to include all linked files. If sending via FTP, use a compression utility to compress multiple files before uploading.

FONTS: It is best to send all fonts used in your artwork. With postscript fonts, be sure to include both screen and printer fonts. Also remember to include fonts used in linked graphics. If you are unable to send us fonts, convert type to outlines before sending us your art.

 IMAGES: Make sure all linked files sent to us are high resolution, minimum 300 dpi for photos and 1200 dpi for line art.

 COLORS: All colors need to be properly defined as process or spot (do not use RGB colors). All unused colors should be deleted from color palette (this includes placed EPS files). Spot colors need to carry their proper PMS designation.
