Please follow our step-by-step guidelines on how to prepare your artwork (files). To view a guide, simply select the program you plan to use from the list below. For accurate printing and efficient mailing, use the information we've provided to design according to USPS regulations. Simply select your software and product size to search our full library of templates, setup instructions, save instructions and PDF export settings. It's the quick and easy way to get started.
Once your design is finalized, remember to remove the start file guidelines layer and/or USPS regulation guidelines. There should be no crop marks, trim marks, or other guides on the file. We recommend flattening your design for upload submission. We also recommend outlining all text and images for print. Accepted file types are: TIF, PSD, PDF, JPG, AI and EPS version 8 or lower.
Be sure to check the low-resolution previews (digital proof) and follow the simple instructions to finish and approve your order. We do not provide hard copy proofs.
