Printing Tips

We at Print & Mail Services want your print projects to look their absolute best! These tips can help you set up your print jobs to go off without a hitch.

  1. Add 0.125 inch bleeds
  2. All print documents with pictures or colors that go to the edge require a minimum ⅛” bleed. You can learn more about adding bleeds here.

  3. Make sure images are at least 300 ppi
  4. Images that are lower resolution may appear pixelated or blurry when printed.

  5. RGB vs CMYK
  6. For print projects, convert colors to CMYK before printing. For online design projects, use RGB.

  7. Talk to your Project Coordinator about the best paper stock for your job
  8. Some types of paper will produce higher quality prints with crisper images and richer colors.
