Print Specifications

Please submit files in industry standard formats that are not dependent on the application you used to create the files, fonts or other separate design elements used in its creation. We accept the following file formats: TIF, JPG and PDF. All file formats must be flattened, have a minimum resolution of 300dpi (maximum resolution is 375dpi) and outlined fonts.

We have provided steps for many different programs to achieve this format. If you have any questions or are unable to supply in this format, please contact us and we will help you.

Please Refer to our Digital Proof Disclaimer

Below you will find these sections:

Quick File Setup/Instructions:

  1. Recommended Color Profile: US Sheetfed Coated v. 2
  2. Maximum Ink Limit: 300%
  3. Files must be at least 300 dpi resolution (max. 375 dpi)
  4. For rich black (backgrounds) please use C:30% / M:20% / Y:20% / K:100% . For black text (fonts), only use 100%K and that it is set to overprint especially if it is on top of any artwork or graphic background.
  5. DO NOT USE C100 M100 Y100 K100 for anything!
  6. CMYK Color Mode : If you do not send us CMYK artwork we will convert your files to CMYK and "color shifting" may occur!
  7. Artwork should not contain any crop marks or color bars!
  8. Keep anything you do not want cutoff at least 0.13" away from all edges (safe area). This does not include borders.
  9. BORDERS: unless absolutely necessary in your finished printing, avoid using small borders. We trim in stacks on a guillotine which is still completed by a real human: paper shifts. You will only receive a small percentage of pieces that are evenly trimmed caused by your files, not GFX Printing/Go4Over4.com.
  10. NO BLEED: if you expect that we can cut perfectly along the edge of every single card, you'll be disappointed. In a fast paced gang printing environment, we cannot trim cards one-at-a-time (see BORDERS above).

Detailed File Setup/Instructions:

Here is a general example of how to layout a flyer with the appropriate amount of bleed. Please follow these instructions for any size flyer.

We cannot guarantee any print job trims correctly without a proper bleed
