Getting Your File To Us
Media and File Transfer Guidelines
There are multiple ways to get your file(s) to us. Choose whichever seems best for your circumstances.
You can call us for advice if you are not sure. But however you get it to us, be sure to give us the necessary information.
Things like file name, format, name of program the file was created in, etc. Without that information, we have to spend time
"exploring" what you give us (which is chargable to you).
EMAIL: You can attach your file to
an email and send it to firstname.lastname@example.org. But often problems occur with email attachments that take time
and effort to resolve. Common problems - attached files are too big and are rejected by your isp or ours, or attached files
are "corrupted" by your isp's email system when encoding them for tranmission. Keep in mind, if you have multiple
files to send (like a PageMaker file along with fonts and images) it is best to compress all the files together first (using
Winzip for Windows), and then send the compressed file. Even if you are sending only one file, compressing the file first
will help to protect the file from getting corrupted. When e-mailing a file we request that you also fax a print (hard copy)
of the page or pages. Otherwise we have no way of knowing if our output is correct.
Of course you can put all your files on a disk and bring them to us. We recommend the following media in preferred order:
CD, thumb drive, 100mb zip disk, 250mb zip disk, floppy disk.
We handle only Windows format disks.
