Policies & Guidelines
Laser print limit: 50 prints per job
Fonts and Images: For Adobe Illustrator, please outline fonts and embed or submit your linked images. PrintFX supports the FIT font library. View our File Setup Guide (.pdf). Guide is a pdf and requires Adobe Reader or Acrobat.
Bleeds and Cropmarks: PrintFX will not edit files -- we do not add bleeds. If cropmarks are needed, submit files with them drawn / included in your files or choose the "Cropmark" option on the form. View our video Bleeds & Cropmarks Quick Guide.
Resolution: We recommend 300dpi. View our video Photoshop - Resolution / Image Size Quick Guide for some quick tips!
Color Management: Use the Adobe RGB 1998 and RGB color mode.
Color Accuracy: For inkjet sheets, posters, fabric, and specialty media, use our self-service area's color-calibrated monitor to soft proof your files using our ICC profiles. Soft proofing provides a close preview of how your colors will print on our printers. View our Soft proofing With A Color Calibrated Monitor and Photoshop - Image Adjustments video quick guides.
File Formats: Submit ai, pdf, jpeg, png, tiff, psd file formats only for inkjet and laser printing. No psb files. We print from Photoshop with the exception of multipage and double-sided laser prints. Convert all AutoCad, Microsoft and Indesign files to a pdf or jpeg. View our video Indesign - Packaging Files / Exporting PDF's Quick Guide.
