Optimum File Format

What is the optimum file format for submitting artwork to Clone for digital printing?

Adobe PDF files, created using the "Press Ready" option (available in many graphic design programs), is the best format for high end, digital output. This format optimizes the raster images in your file to a resolution of 300 ppi (pixels per inch), and (with few exceptions) includes the fonts in the file. These files can be processed and printed quicker than others, as we do not have to load fonts or search for the proper resolution image.  For some programs you may need to process your source file (Microsfot Word, for instance) through a third party program in order to create a PDF file.
