How do I submit my file for printing?
The most convenient way to submit your file is through our website.
There you will find an order form, please call us with any questions. We also offer counter service at our store located at 1704 SW Broadway Ave. We suggest avoiding e-mail as it can be unreliable.What format do you need my document to be
in for submission?
To ensure the best results we prefer a press ready PDF file. We accept hard copies and Word documents, however Word can be unreliable and it has been our experience that it be a choice of last resort. We do not have the capability to print from other word processing programs such as Pages, Open Office, & Word Perfect.
How do I create a PDF?
We offer a custom PDF print driver through our website
clean-copy.com. Please follow the link labeled Adobe PDF job ready. The driver and instructions for installation are posted there. Acrobat.com also offers up to 5 free document conversions through their website. Mac users running OS X have native PDF support under the print menu in any program. Additionally there are a host of third party programs (freeware and shareware) that can convert your document to PDF.
