How can I protect my files during transmission?

You can protect your files during the upload process by compressing (zipping) them. Compression will prevent file corruption.

 

How do I attach my work to an e-mail message?

Most e-mail programs offer an explicit “attach file” option, either in the form of a button or a menu item. A paperclip icon has become the standard indication of files attached. Modern e-mail programs will allow you to attach files simply by dragging them onto the body of the e-mail message. Be sure to compress (zip) your files prior to attaching and sending them.

 

My file for output is very large; it’s too big for me to e-mail. How can I get this to you?

You can upload the file (our order upload system accepts files of unlimited size) or arrange to send physical media to us. We accept almost any kind of modern portable media including digital camera media, USB jump drives, and external drives. If you’re not sure about something, please feel free to call and ask!

 

Can you transfer files electronically for me?

Yes – anywhere and to anyone. Please include detailed transfer instructions.

 

Why is it important to convert to PDF?

A correctly generated PDF will include all of the typefaces (fonts) and images used in your document, thus simplifying the whole process for you and for us. Our output devices are tuned to print PDFs so by using the Portable Document Format you are ensuring the highest quality transfers with the fastest possible turnaround times.

 

What changes might occur when my file is saved as a PDF?

Be sure to view your PDF in the Adobe Reader software and check for correct sizing, resolution, fonts, line and letter spacing, etc. What you see in the PDF is what will be output.

 

How can I create a PDF?

Many applications can now export files as PDF. Acrobat Professional from Adobe Systems is the premiere PDF file creation and editing suite.
