Photoshop CS4 and earlier | Accepted file formats: psd, tiff, jpeg, gif, eps, bmp

Raster files must have a minimum resolution of 300 dpi and be 100% of the actual imprint size.

QuarkXpress 6.5 and Adobe InDesign CS4 | Accepted file extensions: qxd, indd

Please make sure to send all files used in the document; including fonts and placed images, as well as a print-ready pdf. All placed images included need to be a minimum of 300dpi and 100% of the actual imprint size. QuarkXpress files may also be exported as hi-res eps or pdf files, and InDesign files may be exported as hi-res pdf files, which can often produce more readily usable files.

We cannot guarantee that files created in Microsoft Word will produce high-quality images and text. Do not place logos or pictures in word files, send files separately. All images need to be a minimum of 300dpi and 100% of the actual imprint size. If you don't have access to a file format other than a doc file, please send us what you have and we will make it work.

If you can't get artwork in our preferred format:

Send over whatever art you have and we will evaluate it and let you know what needs to be done. We will do whatever we can to make sure that your order is not held up because of artwork issues. Often times we can recreate your logo quickly with little or no charge. However, there may be a fee in assisting you in the creation of your artwork.

What if you don't have artwork files:

PrintGlobe has a talented in-house art department that is eager and ready to create artwork for you! If you don't have artwork, just tell your Dedicated Account Manager what you're thinking of, and we'll create it for you, generally between 24 - 48 hours. If PrintGlobe rebuilds or creates your artwork, we will be happy to send you all new vector files via email, upon request. Also, once we have your artwork on file, we archive it for life, making ordering next time really easy! Graphic design fees may apply.

  • This is my second order with PrintGlobe and I am very pleased all around. The online ordering process is extremely efficient and straight forward. My rep at the company is quick to see my order through and answer any questions that I have. They are in the US and speak my language literally and figuratively and are there to get me what I need. My pieces looked great and I plan on many future projects with this company. Thanks PrintGlobe!

  • Print Globe really bailed us out! We had a customer who slammed us with a difficult project that we couldn't fulfill in house, and our regular vendor was dragging his feet and couldn't even get us a hard price to tell our customer. Print Globe was able to create a solution for us and our customer and delivered on time and without complaints.

  • Price. Quality. Service. After 37 years in business, I've finally found a vendor who has all three. Wait! I just thought of one more - Variety. Now how can you beat four-out-of-four? I just love it when a printer makes my designs come to life and the client raves when they receive the final product. Thank you, PrintGlobe.
