File Setup Guides
As a free service, our design department performs a comprehensive pre-flight review on each file submitted to us. We check for proper page size and bleed areas, font issues, image resolution and color modes, folding issues, multi-page layout issues and much more. While we check each file for errors, if any errors are missed in the pre-flight review and not caught on the proof, Slate Group assumes no responsibility. Therefore, it is strongly suggested that you use these guidelines to verify that your files are properly set up for print production before submitting them.
If this is the first time you’ve sent files to us, if you are new to graphic design for printing, or if you would like more application specific information, please review our file setup guide in its entirety or check out the items you’re most concerned with from the table of contents below.
