How to Submit Artwork: (Barcodes West accepts most art files including .jpg, .pdf, and .ai files)

Below is a list of criteria for the quickest turnaround on proofs and drawings:

  • Submit “native” files for jobs created in Adobe applications (Illustrator, Photoshop, etc.)
  • Submit both “native” files and press-quality PDF for jobs created in other applications (MS Word, MS Publisher, etc.)
  • Include all fonts
  • Make sure there are no missing images (linked and embedded)
  • Images have a resolution of 300dpi or above
  • If applicable, submit layered files – not “flattened” (Photoshop, etc.)
  • Proofread copy – spelling, placement, etc., should be ready to print
