HOW MUCH BLEED SHOULD I HAVE ?
A bleed is extra area outside of your document that is trimmed off to insure proper cuts. In simple terms - your background should go an 8th of an inch (0.125”) beyond the final cut size. For example, if you have a 2x3.5 - you should design your piece as 2x3.5, but have your background extend 0.125" on all sides. The piece you submit to us should be 2.25x3.75
 IFIT LOOKS LIKE THIS DURING DESIGN IT WILL LOOK LIKE THIS WHEN CUT 
     
  
     
  
 WE REQUIRE BLEEDS ON ALL JOBS. THER'S A BIG RISK YOUR JOB BEING MISCUT
     
please keep your text at least 1/4" (0.25”) away from the edge of the piece, unless it is an eighth page or smaller. This way your text is in a "safe" area. If you have any questions regarding this policy you may call us, or use our design templates located on our website.
CAN I RESIZE MY 72DPI ARTWORK TO 300DPI?
Unfortunately, you cannot increase your resolution for a design that has been created low resolution. The output will be blurry or grainy, and at times, unreadable. The only solution is to redesign your piece at the correct resolution. If you have any questions, call us today and someone from our Art department will help explain in detail.

CMYK VS RGB
Our commercial printing equipment uses process color. Process color utilizes Cyan, Magenta, Yellow, and Black to reproduce the full color spectrum. CMYK is different than how your monitor displays colors. Monitors use RGB (Red, Green, Blue) color space. RGB files converted to CMYK will shift considerably and we do not want you to be surprised with your colors output. Additionally, Pantone is a mixed color system used for spot colors and cannot be reproduced accurately with the CMYK process. Many Pantone colors will convert to CMYK with close representation, however accuracy is not guaranteed.
Color Matching: Colors you see on your monitor will NOT accurately reflect colors on your final printed piece. If you are concerned about color, purchase a color proof from us to review before we go to print. When using our digital services we can output a proof for you on the exact paper you request.
We'll do our best to match colors but because of variations inherent in the gang-run printing process we cannot guarantee an exact match. Remember: PDF proofs are not made for color matching, only for content. If we see something that will not output correctly we will contact you, however we cannot be held responsible for color differences
