|Submission of Electronic Files Requirements & Guidelines|
Because your job is important to us, we have written this brief guide to help you obtain the maximum quality when we print your job.
All files must be submitted in a PDF format with the following requirements:
Please contact Trumbull Tech Support if help is needed to do this.
It is recommended to use the Adobe PDF preset: PDF/X-1a:2001 when creating your PDF file. This setting is an industry standard for printing.

For optimum reproduction and clear and sharp copy, use sans serif fonts such as Futura, Helvetica or similar for small type. Reverse type reproduces best with large bold sans serif fonts. The same is true for color type. Thin serif fonts are difficult to read in color or reverse type. It is recommended that four color type and/or small four color reverse knock-outs be avoided. Black type that uses four color blends should never be used.
If proofs are required, we will provide electronic SendIt proofs. Although other forms of proofs may be requested (PDF, Hard copy, etc.) the SendIt proofs will be the final authorized form.
For optimum reproduction, it is recommended to use the Photoshop and SNAP color settings for reproduction on newsprint.
Please contact Trumbull Tech Support if you have any questions on any of these topics.
