How to prepare your files for Just Press Print
We accept the following file formats:
TIF, TIFF, JPEG, JPG, EPS, PNG and PDF
The maximum size we can accept per file is 30MB (megabytes). Make
sure you check the resolution of your images before you send
your print files to us.
To create high quality print products, Just Press Print recommends
that the images in your files are created at 300 dpi (dots-per-inch).
At lower resolution than 300 dpi (example: web images are normally
only 72 dpi and cannot be used in print) there will be insufficient
Color images and art must be provided in the CMYK (cyan, magenta,
yellow, black) color mode. Black and white images and art must
be provided in the grayscale color mode. This allows us to maintain
a high quality appearance to your printed materials.
A “bleed” is the part of paper that will be trimmed
off when the materials are cut to their final size. This is done
to allow a color or image to continue or “bleed” to
the edge of the sheet.
For best results, create your digital files by adding
0.125” (inch) to all sides of your document. All files must
be built to the full bleed dimensions that are specified for each
trim size. We automatically trim 0.125” off each edge, which
will result in the correct trim size. Add 0.25" to the overall
dimension of your digital layout. Example: a 5" x 7" would
have a bleed size of 5.25" x 7.25" and a 8.5"x11" brochure
would have a bleed size of 8.75"x11.25".
Don't Cut Out The Crop Marks
Make sure you create your digital files with crop marks. Crop marks
are the lines that show us where the paper should be cut to produce
the correct size.

Stay In The Safe Zone
Don’t lose something you’ve worked hard to create!
Remember that all critical elements of your design (text or images)
must be kept at least 0.125" inside the edge. Anything left
close to edge could be cut off during trimming (and it probably
Know Your Borders
Please allow 1/8" cutting space around your design. We don’t
recommend the use of borders, as shifting in the cutting process
may occur and we cannot guarantee that borders appear completely “even”.
