File Upload Instruction Page.

When sending your artwork and attachments to us please follow these instructions.
Before you upload any files please read these guidelines.

Please do NOT e-mail files to us!
E-mail files are often corrupted through the e-mail process. The average e-mail message goes through five different servers before they reach there destination. This means there is a high chance your attachment will not be readable when it gets to us.

In order to correct this we have set up two ways for you to send us your files. One is to use your FTP Software (FTP File Instructions). If you are not familiar with such software than we recommend you use our New Wave Printing File Upload Page (New Wave Upload Page Instructions).

Files names should be labeled as follows: (your companyname)_(jobname).(type of file) For example if your Company Name is ABC Company, and the job name is Sally's Business Cards, and the file type is a .GIF file then the name of the file should be:
abc_sallybusinesscards.gif or
Upper and lower case names are acceptable. This process allows us to easily identify the work being submitted. It will also reduce the risk of file transfers being overwritten by others. (The risk of this is slim, but it is a good idea to name files as requested.)

Acceptable files for transfer:
We do accept most graphic file types. We prefer Photoshop and Pagemaker EPS files. If you have a specific type font you want, please specify the font, and/or include the font file in transfer. Here is a list of files you may use.

Macintosh Programs  

Acrobat Reader 5.0
Adobe Illustrator 8.0
Adobe Pagemaker 6.5
Adobe Photoshop 5.0
Microsoft Word 98 (Macintosh Version)
Quark 4.1

File extensions for Windows you can use include: .psp .psd .doc .gif .jpg .jpeg .txt .rtf .zip (Zip file extensions must be compatible with programs on left) .png .bmp .swf .fla Tiff    (not a complete list)

We have recently added our ability to use Windows programs. Presently we can print in Black and White, but have limitations as to the color files we can print. We hope to have this problem corrected shortly and apologize for any inconvenience this may cause.

Also note Quark files have limitations and are NOT recommended to be used for any artwork. If it's all you have we can adapt, but it is not recommended.

Color Artwork: If you have two (or more) colors in your project we will need the color separation files for each color to be used. Each separation should be done in Black. The reason for this is because particular colors will not create useable press plates. Thus create a separate file for each color used.

We do NOT accept any executable files. This includes but is not limited to .exe, .cgi, .dll, or system files. Any such files will be deleted immediately. Anyone abusing this policy will be banned from our site.
