Bleeds & Cutting Margins:
Why do we ask for bleed?
Bleed is the portion of the design that will be trimmed off when cut to the final size.
In order to create bleed, extend your background graphics 1/8" or .125 inches outside of the trim line.
Resizing the image may not always be an acceptable method for adding bleed.
SAFE ZONE = All critical elements (text, images, logos, etc.) must be kept at least 1/8" or 0.125 inches inside the trim line. Anything left close to the edge may be cut off during trimming.

CMYK vs RGB:
CMYK (Cyan, Magenta, Yellow and Black) are the colors used in the printing process, whereas RGB (Red, Green and Blue) are the colors used by screen displays such as your monitor. Please note that JPEG files are almost always in RGB.
Your document should be created in CMYK mode so that the colors that you see on the screen most closely match the final printed product. If you create your document in RGB, the colors in your printed product may vary slightly. Many of the bright values produced by your monitor cannot be reproduced in print. In most cases, Supreme Graphics can make these conversions for you, but you should be aware of the difference you may see in color.
Resolution refers to the number of dots per inch (dpi), or the amount of detail the image has. Most documents prepared for upload should be 300 dpi at 100% of the final print size. Higher resolution means a more detailed image, and also larger file and longer upload time.
Images found on the web are typically at a resolution of 72 dpi. This resolution is much too low for quality printing. In addition, most images on the web are protected by copyright laws. For these reasons, we do not recommend using images from the web.
Resolution and size (dimensions) are inversely proportional to each other. So, if you enlarge an image, you lower its resolution. If you reduce an image, you increase its resolution.
Converting Fonts to Outlines:
Text can be converted to curves (paths) in some graphics programs. This will fix upload errors that result when fonts are not embedded in your file. Following these easy steps will help ensure that your text prints clearly.
How to convert fonts to outlines in Adobe Illustrator:
(1) Select all text
(2) Click Type Menu> Type> Create Outlines
(3) Text now has a blue outline
(4) Save a copy
Additonal Artwork Tips:
files, all fonts and images must be embedded in the files.
documents should be exported as an EPS. When saving your EPS, be sure to click on the radio button (in the export dialog box) that says “Convert text to Curves”.
