We recommend saving as a .PDF. You may also send the file in the following types: jpg, jpeg, tif, tiff, eps, and png.
We prefer that you send .PDF with embedded or outlined fonts. .PDF's are easier to handle and will likely speed up your turn-around. Remember to flatten your files before uploading.
Myrick Advertising only prints in CMYK format. If you have designed your files in RGB, please save the press ready files as CMYK. You will see a color variation between RGB formula, and CMYK.
We print only files that are 300dpi or higher. Anything in a lower resolution we consider web quality, and will not print.
Bleed must extend past the cut-line, and will be trimmed off in finishing
- Please make sure to include .125" of bleed on all sides of the design
- The bleed for Booklets, and presentation folders is .25"
- Please leave .25" of safe area from the edge of the finished size to anything you don't want cut off
- For instance if you are designing a 4" x 6" Postcard the flat size or the size before cutting with bleed would be 4.25" x 6.25", and the finished size would 4" x 6"
Please use Myrick Advertising templates to ensure proper set up of file
When creating a Spot UV job, you must include a Spot UV template file along with the regular print file. The Spot UV template file is used to show where the UV coating needs to be applied
For better quality we recommend creating mask files in vector based programs such as Illustrator or CorelDRAW. Please only use solid 100% K to indicate where you would like the UV. Do not use shadows, glows or grayscale images. White will indicate no UV.
Remember, if it's white, you can write!
