Panels you would like to create. That will then take you to the

PDF. WE STRONGLY RECOMMEND YOU USE THEM.
Create your file in CMYK color mode. Any spot colors must be converted
to CMYK process. Documents created in RGB mode will require color
conversion and may result in unpredictable results.
Resolution: Set DPI to minimum 100 and maximum 300.
Text elements must be converted to outlines (paths, curves) prior
to saving as a PDF.
Color Settings: CMYK set to: US Web Coated (SWOP) v 2 RGB set to:
Adobe RGB (1988). These settings are what we use as profiles (box
of Crayons) for our printers. Note: If neither of these color settings
is available, use generic CMYK and RGB settings or your software
Photographic images (or elements that are resolution dependent)
must have a minimum resolution of 100 dpi and no greater than 300
dpi – at final print size – 100%. WARNING: Scaling a lower
resolution image to a larger size (upsampling) is discouraged, as
it will cause noticeable image degradation in the final printed
PDF Preset: Set to: PDF/X-1a: 2001
Note: We recommend if you have Adobe Distiller to use it create
your PDF file.
Note: Please keep in mind that we only print EXACTLY what is sent
to us. We do not have the time or resources to alter or color correct
your files. Image resolution, quality and good color all will affect
how your final printed looks.
