File Submission Information

Digital printing is applicable to a wide variety of print jobs that would normally run on a press. We do everything we can to make it easy for you to get your job to us and approve the results.

  • We accept both PC and Mac file types.
  • We prefer files to be submitted as non-editable PDFs. We also accept, Word, Publisher, Power Point, JPG and PSD files. Additional prepress charges my apply if files are not correctly formatted.
  • Before submitting files, be sure to outline all fonts and flatten images. The best format for PDF files is PDF/X -1a.
  • For jobs with a bleed, allow a minimum of .125″ on all edges. A bleed is the area cut off when the printed job is trimmed to the final size. Be sure to set all critical artwork, type, etc. at least .125″ – .25″ inside the bleed line to be sure this content is not trimmed.
  • Make sure all embedded photos & graphics have resolution of 300 dpi or higher. If the resolution is below 300 dpi the images quality will be affected.
  • Colour mode – files should be converted to CMYK if originally designed as RGB or when submitting photos as JPEG files or other. This does affect the colour so it is better that you do so before you submit your file so you make adjustments if required.
  • Files can be uploaded through our FTP site.
  • Virtually unlimited input file size.
  • We also accept files on CD, DVD, ZIP and other backup devices.
  • We offer on-line PDF proofing so you can see it before it prints.

Files can be uploaded directly to our server. Our automated file uploader requires you enter both a Login ID and Password. These can be obtained by contacting our technical support department 519-371-5955 or by sending an email to sales@tech-centre.com.
