Prints of Love Artwork Guidelines

What file types are accepted?
.AI (Adobe Illustrator), .PSD (Adobe Photoshop), .EPS, .PDF, JPG, .TIF

Should my fonts be outlined?
YES! Breaking the fonts helps us by making sure that the fonts don’t change when we open up the file.

What color space should I send my files in?
All files should be sent in CMYK. Any files submitted in RGB may experience color shifting. All files submitted in RGB are automatically converted to CMYK.

What are the bleed requirements?
All files need to include 1/8″ (0.125 inch) bleed space. Text/images within 1/8″ will be cut off during trimming.  An example of bleed setup for a 4″ x 6″ postcard would be 4.125″ x 6.125″.

What are your resolution requirements?
All rasterized (bitmap) images must be at least 300 dpi. However, 400 dpi for photo images and 1200 dpi for text and line art is highly recommended. ”

Should I include crop marks in my file?
Do not include crop marks in your artwork. Always submit your artwork at trim size + bleed. An example of bleed setup for a 4″ x 6″ postcard would be 4.125″ x 6.125″.

Can I include front and back images in 1 file?
Each side of your artwork should be in a separate file. Do not put both front and back in the same file.

Should overprint be turned on or off?
It is STRONGLY suggested that overprint is turned off to avoid unexpected results.
