Digital Files

Preparing Your Digital Files

Donray is well equipped to receive your artwork digitally and prepare your file for sublimation printing. We perform all file preparation on a Macintosh platform.

As with traditional artwork, if your design is to bleed off, the appropriate bleed area must be provided.

For optimal color accuracy, please include a matchprint with your file. Alternatively, if you have spot color art (or do not have a  matchprint to accompany a process file), you can provide us with a color print containing Pantone color identification.

If you have any questions, please call 973-515-8100 and ask to speak to the Prepress department.

Adobe Photoshop/Raster graphics:

Photoshop files should be prepared and sent to us at 100% of size in CMYK mode and at a resolution between 150 to 300dpi.  When saving your art we suggest you save as a layered Photoshop document whenever possible.  All flattened artwork should be sent along with its layered Photoshop file.

If you are working in RGB mode it is critical that you send a print for color to help us achieve the best possible conversion to CMYK.
Conversions from RGB to CMYK for print production will shift some out of gamut colors as viewed on a monitor.

Adobe Illustrator:

When working in Illustrator, please make color selections using the Pantone colors in the Pantone selection mode as this will expedite your job through the color correction process.

Please convert all fonts to outlines and provide all linked and embedded artwork.

Quark Express:

When sending Quark files, be sure to include all artwork and fonts used in the document.  This can be easily accomplished through the File pulldown menu utilizing the “Collect for Output” feature.

Corel Draw:

Please call to discuss.

Freehand:

Please call to discuss.

InDesign:

When sending InDesign files, be sure to include all artwork and fonts used in the document.  This can be easily accomplished through the File pulldown menu utilizing the “Package” feature.
