  2. Be sure to DELETE any hidden layers that are not intended to print (i.e. setup guide layers or other hidden artwork layers) to ensure no risk of them appearing on the final print.
  3. Each job (including multiple paged projects) must be submitted as a single PDF file. Ensure that all pages are the same size.
  4. Files must be submitted with proper orientation to ensure proper back up.

  6. File must consist of 1/8" bleed and all important art and text must be within the safety margin.
  7. Ensure that your PDF is high res and that all images are CMYK at 300 DPI.
  8. Black type should have the following values: C0, M0, Y0, K100.
