Prepress Guidelines

Supplying DMR Graphics with your artwork

If you are supplying finished artwork or graphics, please provide original files in the native format in which they were designed or in one of the following formats:

Vector Programs

Graphics created in Adobe Illustrator (convert fonts to outlines) AI, EPS or high resolution PDF are the preferred file formats. Please include layered files and keep text and graphic elements in vector format.

Raster Programs

The preferred file format is Adobe Photoshop PSD or PSB. Please include layered file and keep text and graphic elements in vector format. Raster images should be CMYK color-based TIFF format and the desired image resolution is at least 100 ppi at full size.

Page Layout Programs

The preferred file format is Adobe InDesign. When supplying artwork from a page layout program, all links and fonts must be included. Please include layered file and keep text and graphic elements in vector format.

CAD Programs

CAD files are best used for blueprints indicating shapes and dimensions only, not artwork. If applicable, save as DXF or DWG. Include all dimensions and locations of cutouts, holes, windows, radius corners and irregular shapes.

Adobe PDF

When creating a PDF file, be sure to embed all fonts. This is not the default option and must be specified. Please keep text and graphic elements in a vector format.

Other Important Criteria

If you are supplying production-ready artwork which requires a bleed, please include the bleed on all sides of your art. We recommend 1/8" bleed.

If your artwork is not created in one of the above accepted formats, provide the original file format. We support almost all available software. Please convert all fonts to curves or outlines whenever possible. If you are unable to convert fonts to curves please provide fonts for all artwork submitted.

Media Sources

We can accept data files supplied via FTP, DVD, CD-ROM, and e-mail.
