To avoid added expense and/or delays to your project, when supplying
graphics to NECD/SuperDups, please be sure that your files are prepared
to our specifications. We recommend that you use NECD/SuperDups
supplied template files and review our specifications prior
to submitting your artwork for approval. Customer supplied graphics
that do not conform to NECD/SuperDups specification are subject to addtional
Final graphic layouts are accepted in electronic format as QuarkXpress
(.qxd), Adobe Photoshop (.psd), Adobe Illustrator (.ai
& .eps), TIFF (.tif), Bitmap (.bmp) or Adobe Acrobat (.pdf)
from both MAC and PC platforms. It is best to save text as part
of the image. Fonts should be supplied formatted Mac postscript,
and/or imbedded, rastorized, or converted to outlines.
images should be in CMYK at
a minimum of 300dpi (600 dpi is recommended and preferred.)
should be provided 600dpi. When preparing .pdf files, please be
sure that artwork is not downsampled to a lower resolution.
It is best to utilize the templates available on our website. Overall
dimensions include a 1/8" bleed area for trim allowance - For
a proper print bleed, we require a 1/8 outer and inner bleed safety
margin. Your supplied images/color should extend 1/8" beyond
the final trim size to ensure a clean edge after trimming. Critical
elements should be placed at least 1/8" within the actual cut
lines to avoid being trimmed. (click

Color you see on your monitor may not match exactly the printouts
you provide to us. Likewise, the color from our printers may also
vary slightly. We cannot guarantee an exact match to your printouts.
Hardcopy color proofs are available at upgraded cost upon request.
