Tips on Document Layouts

A paper bleed is an extra bit of printing on your document.  This helps to make a good clean cut and seemless edges when cutting down your documents.  These are used when you don''t want white borders on your prints.

Make sure your document has been saved as CMYK coloring instead of RGB.  CMYK is for printing presses while RGB mode if for digital devices.

The best file format for images are .TIFF files.  They are high in quality and hold any layers that might be used in Photoshop or other layout programs.

The best file format for graphics are vector images which are typically .EPS files or .PDF files.  Vector images are the original line designs.  Not a .JPEG image.

Including the fonts that you''ve used on your documents can be extremely helpful if they aren''t standard fonts.
