We accept both PC and MAC files. To help you setup your files you can download templates for Photoshop, Illustrator, Corel Draw and Quark. Please download and use them so your setup is correct, especially if you have never setup cards before.

For pagemaker users. We open pagemaker files in Adobe Indesign on the MAC. Sometimes there may be problems importing your files into Indesign so we need a PDF / fax proof from you along with your files. Make sure to include all fonts and supporting files you used. For PC users it is important that you use standard cross-platform fonts so their won't be font problems when opening your files on a MAC.
For pagemaker files there may be a small setup fee depending on if their are complications when importing your files. We will inform you of the cost, if any, before prepping your file for printing. All supporting images, fonts, etc. must be stuffed. Compress them into a .sit, .sea or .zip format.
