Most printshops prefer a .PDF (Portable Document File) format; it will embed fonts into your file and doesn’t lose it’s formatting, unlike Microsoft Publisher or Word. You can also save as a high-resolution (at least 300 dpi – dots per inch) four-color .JPG file. Either format can be emailed or uploaded to the printshop of your choice. We recommend you DO NOT send original files to any printshop unless you have a very solid relationship with them.
