Envelope Printed 4 Less Artwork requirements:

Print-ready File Information

Envelopes Printed 4 Less accepts print-ready files in any of the following formats: .pdf, .eps, .psd, .tif.
In other words, we accepts print-ready files saved from the following design software programs: Adobe Photoshop® CS, Adobe Illustrator® CS, Adobe InDesign® CS

We can also print raster images (.tiff and .jpegs) independent of the application program used to create such designs if they are submitted at high-quality, uncompressed 300 dpi resolution, 8 bit, CMYK color mode. We DO NOT accept files created in MS-Word or MS-Publisher. If you have an artwork file in a word document or in MS-Publisher we encourage you to create a PDF file that can be emailed to Envelopes Printed 4 Less.

Adobe® .PDF:
• Please embed all fonts and images.
• Native files are preferred over .PDF files. PDF files require the least amount of support files or native files, however, they also allow the least flexibility in terms of editing capabilities.
• PDF files should be provided as high resolution files with all elements color separated and assigned proper Pantone® uncoated colors.
• Files should be accurate regarding size, position, color, etc. Only minor modifications will be made free of charge.

Photoshop® CS or earlier: .EPS, .PSD, .TIFF
• All files should be created or scanned at a minimum 300 dpi resolution, 100% size.
• Changing a low-resolution file (72 dpi) to be 300 dpi is not recommended and does not provide the same high resolution quality.
• Layers should be left intact whenever possible.
• Any used fonts should be included.
• Color files should be converted to grayscale with desired color indicated in order comments, or as monotone image with Pantone® uncoated color assigned.
• Color files can be submitted in the following method: Multi-layered .TIFF file w/ each color on its own layer.
• 1 and 2 color files submitted in CMYK or RGB format can sometimes be converted or color separated for an additional art fee that will be determined depending on the complexity of the file.
• Colors can be chosen with a reasonable degree of accuracy but it is strongly recommended that colors be chosen from Pantone® uncoated swatches and indicated in comments when order is placed.
• .JPG and .GIF files are generally low resolution and produce poor results when printed, therefore these are not a recommended file format.

Illustrator® CS or earlier: .EPS, .PSD, .TIFF
• Files can be either .EPS or .AI, and should be vector format.
• All file elements should be assigned a Pantone® uncoated color.
• Any font files used should be included, or fonts should be converted to outlines.
• Any embedded or linked images (.PSD, .EPS, .TIFF, etc.) should be included.
