Graphics Applications That We Support

Below is a list of the most frequently used applications that we support and links to some tips and specific suggestions for each one. All of the Basic File Submission Guidelines apply to each of these applications. There are minor differences in terminology and techniques between the brands of page layout, image editing, or illustration programs, but different brands of each type are generally very similar in their overall functionality.

For even more tips please visit our Quick Tips section. This is our catch-all category for all manner of miscellaneous tips, tricks, program fixes, and workarounds to help you with building your artwork . We'll add new items from time to time so check in to see what's been added recently.

We cannot guarantee that files created in MS-Word or MS-Publisher will produce high-quality images and text. These applications are primarily designed to create office documents and use RGB color by default. Please refer to your user manual or software vendor for information on how to output a print-ready raster image that meets Commercial Printing specifications.

We can also print using .EPS files as well as from raster image formats such as .TIF, JPG, and PSD if they are submitted at high-quality, uncompressed 300 dpi resolution, 8 bit, CMYK color mode. If you intend to send us either a .PS or a .PRN file then please contact our Prepress department in advance to discuss their creation in detail.

Other Applications

Despite the fact that they were not designed with professional printing in mind, we can also print from the following applications. These programs generally produce low resolution RGB files. If your application is not listed here we will still support output from it. That being said, please be forewarned that the results from these and other similar applications can vary widely and might not be acceptable to you.
