Please send all artwork in a Macintosh compatible format. When submitting your artwork by e-mail

please include the following information:

To save space, please save files as high-res PDFs or compress your file with Stuff-it or Zip.

CD-ROM are also acceptable. We also require a hardcopy of your artwork, preferably color separated

when applicable, before we can begin your order.



Program Formats

We can open Adobe Illustrator, Adobe Photoshop, Adobe InDesign, Freehand, and QuarkXpress.

Be sure to include all placed or embedded files, as well all fonts used in your layout, or please

converted the type to curves-outlines, with the file you submit. Whenever possible please send vector

files. Save your vector art as an EPS, or an EPS-PDF file. This provides the sharpest and cleanest

images on the press. CorelDraw files should be saved as an Abobe Illustrator EPS file format,

with all fonts converted to outlines. Keep all type and logos 3/16”from edges. For full bleed

printing, extend art 1/8” beyond sides.


Ghost or Watermark images
We suggest you screen back your art image (logos) to about 7 to 10% screen depending on image

size and color(s) being used.



Mechanical Art

Our art department can scan your non-electronic art for $50 (G) per color. Mechanical files should be

camera ready separated files. High-contrast black line art on white paper is the next best way to get the

finished product you what. For multi-color printing, separations with registration marks are required.

Please do no submit previously screened artwork. Non-camera ready files will incur an additional

processing charge. Please contact BKLine for details.


Scanned Files
It is recommended that photographs or screened artwork should be at least 300 dpi resolution and 600

to 1200 dpi for line art. All scanned or bitmapped art can be saved as a Tif, EPS or Photoshop file. We

Prefer Tif format. A layered Photoshop file is recommended  for more complicated layout. Submit art

files in black & white, grayscale, 1, 2, or 3 Spot Colors, or CMYK for 4-color printing.


Note: Web graphics are typically too low in resolution to be used in production.
