All file formats must have a minimum of 350 dpi (dot per inch) resolution at 100% of the final print size.
Images designed for the web typically cannot be used for printing as they have a low screen resolution of 72 dpi.
Print images need to be created at 350 dpi or there will be a substantial drop in the image quality.
example. 6"x 4" Postcard resolution: 350 dpi (2135 pixels x 1435 pixels)
All color artwork and/or images must be provided in CMYK (cyan, magenta, yellow, black) color mode.
All black & white artwork and/or images must be provided in grayscale color mode.
For postcards, please build your print-ready digital files by adding 0.25" bleed to each dimension (or 0.125" bleed on all four sides).
For example, a 4" x 6" postcard with the full bleed should be 4.125" x 6.125". Please design your files on our templates to ensure proper bleed.
