gif, cdr, dxf, wmf, fhd, pcx, bmp, msw, wpd, cwd
and many more. We prefer files in Macintosh
format but accept PC.
gladly accept text files on disk or email. Since
the purpose of providing these files is for you
to save money by saving us time, please be sure
to prepare files with a style and format that we
can use easily. Often client disk files require
more work to undo formatting than would be
required to re-enter the text. To avoid this
problem, simply consult the following guidelines.
accept most word processing formats, Mac or IBM.
If we can't read your file, you can probably save
it in another format that we can read, or we can
have it converted. Our preferred text formats are
QuarkXPress, PageMaker, Microsoft Word, Word
Perfect, and ASCII. (.qxd, .mwr, .msw, .doc,

It can help to also include the collect for
output document which contains version,
extensions and font usage information.
and JPG FILES:
creating your own gif's and jpg use 256 colors.
We will reduce the number of colors prior to
uploading. There are special plug-ins, filters
and techniques used in preparing graphics for
html that must be in place to create small file
sizes with optimum visual effects.
Original Freehand or Corel art must accompany an
eps file. At times originals need to be resized,
trapped or colors changed. Without original,
modification is difficult. This problem does not
occur with Adobe Illustrator since same file is
used as eps and original and, is
our preferred eps format.
accept 3.5-inch diskettes, CDs, Iomega Zip and
Jaz Disks. Our preferred disks are CD, Zip or
Jazz. They are faster, less costly and very
durable. Disks can be sent to us for Macintosh or
PC (IBM compatible).
mark this copy with instructions regarding layout
and design or even text edits you'd like us to
complete. Please mark clearly and legibly. Keep a
backup copy of what you're sending us, just in
case. Provide a listing of files on the
disk, if there are more than a few. Be sure to
clarify any file names that may not be readily

document unless using Quark or PageMaker.

apply formatting such as bold, italics, etc., to
individual words at any time as this formatting
is usually retained.
use underlining or all caps. These are
"typewriter holdovers" and are seldom
used in desktop publishing. It's also much more
time consuming for us to undo this formatting
than it would be to apply it in specific
instances where it is needed.
using tabs, hit the tab button only once. You
don't need to bother with setting up tabs in your
program, and don't worry about how the page looks
on your screen. Your efforts to make the setup
look right (especially if you rely on default tab
settings) will involve extra work for us. We can
easily set the appropriate tabs using QuarkXPress

between major sections of the document.
hit the return key only when you reach the end of
a paragraph, even if you're intending to wrap
text (for example, for indented bulleted lists).
