Prepress

We are committed to helping our customers produce accurate files, cost effectively at any production level. We accept most types of prepress files; from page layout to PDF. Ask your sales rep for details.

 

IMPORTANT INFORMATION ABOUT FILE NAMING

PDF's must be named to reflect the pages it contains. The page number in that file name should be first, following by an underscore, followed by descriptive text.

 

Example: Page 12 of a product catalog - "012_2013 product cat.pdf"

Example: Page 56 of a magazine - "056_CFM_v1i20.pdf"

Covers should be name using C1, C2, C3, C4. To keep the order correct for InSite viewing it's best to add leading zeros to C1 and C2. (000C1.pdf, 000C2.pdf). Do not add the zeros to C3 and C4.
