Print Ready Files:
We prefer vector-formatted files If you are sending over a print ready PDF file • Include 0.125” (1/8 inch) bleed when sending over art work with full bleed.
All Fonts Need To Be Outlined • Please include crop marks and cut lines. If the client is sending over print ready files, GILA MONSTER PRINTING is NOT responsible for any poor print quality due to imagery that is not of optimal resolution or size, low-resolution graphics, missing fonts, or quality issues due to anti-aliasing. All artwork must be supplied at high resolution (at least 300 dpi) at or near actual print size. We accept most file formats including AI, EPS, JPG, PDF and PSD. It is essential that the file you provide is as high quality as possible as this will affect the print quality. If the client is unsure whether your artwork is of high enough resolution, please contact us so that we may review your file and let you know.
Colors may vary slightly from screen to screen and from printer to printer. For example, if something looks a certain way on the client’s phone, for instance, it may look different on their computer at home or office. It may also look different from the client’s printer to ours. If the client requires an exact ink color, please provide a Pantone® reference, otherwise we will use the closest match as per our computers.
Every effort will be made to reproduce ink colors for reprints, but please send us a sample if the client requires an exact match. It should be noted that while every effort and industry standard process will be followed, digital printing systems may not precisely match provided Pantone® color tones. This is a technical limitation, and such jobs that require this precision should consider offset reprographic technologies. We will provide guidance on best practices and technologies for projects like this. To use imagery you have supplied, it is your responsibility to supply us with artwork for which the client has the relevant permissions, licenses and model releases (if applicable) to use for print. GILA MONSTER PRINTING accepts no responsibility for any copyright infringements caused by using artwork supplied to us. GILA MONSTER PRINTING is happy to offer guidance for the ideal substrate (e.g. paper) for your printing needs. If the client has specific requirements, it is their responsibility to communicate this to us before printing and have it confirmed in writing.
A design fee of $30.00 (USD) per 15 minutes will be required for any changes to submitted print-ready artwork, or requested changes to be made after final approval has been received. If in the event printing has begun and a change or stoppage of the order is requested, the client is responsible for the portion of the job that has been produced as well as any necessary reproductions.
