Information about Fonts
Unless your software allows you to embed TrueType fonts, you should avoid using them. Documents that use TrueType fonts may print unpredictably on computers other than the one that was used to create them.
Not all fonts have a bold or italic version. If you are not certain that you have the bold or italic variation of a font, do not use the font attributes buttons in your application to fake the variation. Your desktop printer may be able to mimic or fake the missing variation, but high-resolution printers, such as those used for offset printing, will not. If the font you are using does not have a bold or italic variation, you should select another font that does have the desired variations.
Regardless of which software you use, always provide Reprographics with all image files and fonts used in your document. Even if you use software that allows you to embed TrueType fonts, you should still include the fonts themselves. PostScript fonts always consist of two files - a printer font, and a screen font - and both should be included along with your file.
Color, Size, Bleeds & Disks
All full-color printing, whether to laser or offset, uses four colors: CMYK (cyan, magenta, yellow, black). Your computer monitor (and all TV's) uses only 3 colors: RGB (red, green, blue). If you use any image files that are set up as RGB (video screen colors), they must be converted to CMYK for printing. Reprographics can do this for you, but additional charges may apply.
Please make certain that your document size on your disk matches the page size of your finished publication. If you need Repro to resize your document, an additional charge may apply. If you are using bleeds (printing off the edge of the paper), please set up at least a 1/8-inch bleed in your file. If you need Reprographics to adjust your file to include the bleed, an additional charge may apply.
When preparing material for printing, name your file clearly and print that name of the file on the requisition form. Please give us all the files we need but only the files we need. Do not use any compression utilities. It is better to submit multiple files, discs or Flash drives. Reprographics and most commercial printers prefer CDs or USB Flash Drives.
