3. What is the best file format to use when sending documents to print?

We can process your PDF files, word docs, indesign, photoshop, excel, publisher, and power point files but PDF is the preferred format. Some word docs can change formatting and layout when sent from one computer to another. Creating PDF files also takes care of conflicts that sometimes arise when documents have been created on a Mac and viewed on a PC, or if we do not have the plug ins or fonts you have used when creating your document.


4. What is a PDF?

PDF stands for Portable Document Format. PDF is a file format developed by Adobe Systems that captures formatting information and allows the file to be displayed or printed on multiple computers and printers in its original format. Click here to download a free, current version, of Adobe Reader.
