IMAGE FILE FORMATS AND MODES

Acceptable file formats:

  • TIFF
  • Photoshop
  • EPS
  • PDF
  • AI
  • JPEG – Some quality loss may occur

FILE RESOLUTION

75-125 dpi is our recommendation. If the file you are using is not natively at least 75 dpi at final size, there will be a loss of sharpness, and in extreme cases pixelization (blurriness) may occur.


FONTS

When sending Adobe Illustrator or Adobe InDesign, outline your fonts.

File Upload

Welcome to Graphik's upload page. Here we have a few options to help you get your files to us. If you have any questions, or concerns, do not hesitate to call.


EMAIL

This option is an oldie but goodie. Through email, its an excellent way to get your file sent directly to your Graphik representative, while also giving directions about the images.

DO NOT send the files over 5mb added up all together, because 90% of the time, it will not come to us.

Large File Transfer websites

Large file transfer sites are websites that offer services to transfer large files across the internet as a solution to the email size limit.

Here is a list of sites that we use

FTP

If you are unable to send your image through email, or through other services, we offer a free service directly to our FTP. Our FTP can handle transfers of large files, and they come directly to us. If you have used FTP's in the past, and are familiar with how to use them, enter the following:

  • Host: ftp.graphikusa.com
  • User: anonymous (all lower case)
  • No password

Please let the Graphik representative you are in contact with know when you have started and finished your upload, otherwise we may not see it come in.

Not sure what to do? Give us a call.
