Designing & Uploading a Direct Mail File

Follow

Designing Mail Pieces 

All files must be in RGB color mode, 300 DPI in resolution, to the specified sizes below, and in JPG format. Any design not uploaded to the specifications listed above will be automatically resized to fit the card. If you choose to do this, some parts of your design may appear proportionally distorted, reduced, pixilated or trimmed inappropriately.

Using Digital Photos

If using a digital camera, select the highest quality setting available on the camera. Do not scan photos from business cards, magazines, newspapers, color laser prints or inkjet prints — they usually contain dot patterns that conflict with our printing system. Please scan from the original, professionally-developed photographic print whenever possible.
