font size, type and color

 
To ensure readability, if you use knockout type, or reverse type, it should be larger than 5 pt. size and should only knockout one or two colors. If you are knocking out type on a 4-color image, use a minimum of 8 pt. type.
If you use a serif font (with details on the ends of some of the strokes that make up letters and symbols) use a minimum of 5 pt. type, and only print the type in one color. If you choose, add drop shadows to your fonts before submitting for print.

color mode

 
Please convert your artwork files from RGB to CMYK—this will deliver the most reliable color and will prevent unexpected changes in color.
If your project requires close color matching, it is always a good idea to include a hardcopy proof for us to compare.
While we are often able to closely reproduce a spot PMS® ink using full color process, PMS® spot colors and process colors are produced using different methods. Please refer to a Solid to Process Color Imaging Guide for color conversions.
Your choice of paper will also impact color. A smooth uncoated paper will give colors a more muted appearance, while a coated or gloss paper will add vibrancy. Printing on colored paper will also impact color.

outlined fonts

Before you submit artwork for print, be sure to outline all fonts. This will ensure your message is crisp and readable; avoiding fuzzy edges.

Using your illustration program, convert all text "to curves" or "create outlines" in your files. Never use the stylization palette to bold, italicize, add drop shadow to or put outline on your fonts.
