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:
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.
Acrobat Reader 5.0
Adobe Illustrator 8.0
Adobe Pagemaker 6.5

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.
