Specifications for Using Our Manufacturing Services

File Formats
When providing us with artwork, please provide files in the following formats:
EPS (preferred) in CMYK color mode, 100% in size with crop marks (CorelDraw!, Freehand, Illustrator).  Convert all fonts to curves/outlines. 
TIF in CMYK color mode, 300 dpi, 100% in size with crop marks and fold marks (Fireworks, PhotoPaint, PhotoShop). Do not have fonts smaller than 8pt. text. A minimum bleed of 0.25" on all sides is suggested for all artwork, with 0.5" on the box. Keep all important information within the artwork area (0.25"). 
PDF (ACROBAT) files are acceptable but TIF and/or EPS is preferred for accuracy. PDF files MUST be set for PrePress or Press Quality. 

NOTE: Some delays in the project may occur if submitting files in formats other than EPS or TIF. 

For Manufacturing: All cards should be separate files. Separate files/pages per card on actual sized page, with crop marks and bleed outside the live area. We will create an electronic proof for every item for your review and approval. Once approvals are completed a full color factory sample can be made. After approval, manufacturing will begin. Once completed, the games will then be ready for shipping and delivered to the location(s) of your choice.

For Prototypes: On letter sized (8.5" x 11") pages fitting as many as possible on the page, with crop marks and bleed outside the live area (I.E., 8 up for 3.5x2.5 size, or 10 up for 3.5x2 size, etc.) We will create an electronic proof (emailed) for every item for your review and approval. This process takes approximately 1-2 business days. Once approvals are completed the printing and assembly process will begin. Any changes after this is started may require an additional cost for re-printing and/or assembly for each item changed depending on how far along the project is.
