When placing your next print order with 48HourPrint.com, begin your design process with one of our application-specific templates that are available for all 48HourPrint.com products. These templates are files that include predefined guidelines indicating bleed, trim, and safety specifications, and are available for Photoshop, Illustrator, InDesign, Publisher, QuarkXpress, CorelDraw, and Freehand. Using our templates helps eliminate prepress problems and keeps your print job on schedule.
But whether you use one of our guideline templates or you design your artwork without a template, we want your print buying experience with 48HourPrint.com to be as easy as possible. With that in mind, we have compiled a checklist containing the print ready requirements needed to submit graphic files. We strongly recommend that you review this checklist to ensure your graphic files meet our print ready requirements before placing your order and uploading your files. Customers who submit files that do not pass our print ready requirements will be notified so that the files can be adjusted and re-submitted in order for us to provide a print ready proof that you can review and approve.
***Please note that 48HourPrint.com's preferred accepted file type is .PDF. All design applications allow for a .PDF file to be generated from your design. (For a full list of accepted file types please see sidebar)
