Electronic art is the best method to ensure speedy and accurate production. In addition, whenever possible please provide vector based EPS versions, low resolution art (jpg's, gif's) created for the internet are not usable and will require additional charges to redraw them. Please ensure all artwork includes the format used, a distributor name, PO number and contact name.
Camera Ready Art
Clean crisp black and white art to size. Faxes are not considered camera ready art.
Spectrum uses the latest technology in MACINTOSH-BASED systems. We use Adobe Illustrator (.eps), Adobe Photoshop (.psd), and InDesign. For all other software, save files as an encapsulated postscript (.eps) file. Such files are generally acceptable, as long as the file has been exported as an .eps file and not merely renamed as such. Departure from our standards may result in delays to production schedule.
- Convert all type to curves, paths or outlines (vector art). If this is not possible, send in screen and printer fonts used for the job to be printed.
- For multi-color orders, use Pantone spot colors and indicate exact PMS color numbers.
- When supplying a disk, please provide a hard copy or faxed copy output for proofing purposes. On multi-color orders, please indicate color breaks.
- 300 DPI is the lowest resolution for bitmap format and art should be sent to the requested imprint size.
