Creating a PDF for print

A correctly written PDF will save time in the production of your job. There is less likelihood of problems with fonts or other errors when you provide a PDF file from your system. Remember, however, that most edits will have to be made by you and a corrected PDF file sent to us.

Create your PDF using the "Press Quality" setting in Adobe Acrobat with the following modifications.

  1. Ensure that all fonts are embedded...Set subset to 100%
  2. Be sure printer's marks are selected and that the bleed setting is at least .125 inches.
  3. No color conversion

That's about it.

Since each software application is different in the specifics of creating pdfs, always feel free to call us and we will gladly walk you through the process.
