Images & Graphics
-Remember to check linked/imported EPS graphics for typefaces. Typefaces are not typically embedded within EPS graphics. We recommend you convert them to outlines in your illustration/draw program before importing and/or linking.
-Update all linked graphics to their most current version. Don't leave files unlinked with modified scans - Although we try, don't count on us to automatically "relink" your modified scans.
-To avoid confusion don't include unnecessary or outdated graphics on your disks.
-If you embed the graphics within your layout program (ie. PageMaker) make sure all graphics are embedded properly.
-We cannot insure that we will catch all omissions and cannot be held responsible for customer errors.
2) Are original native graphics files also provided?
3) Any "nested" graphics files?
4) Do scanned elements have correct dpi?
-For images (color and greyscale) that are not to be reduced or enlarged use the following formula -> Scan Resolution (ppi or dpi) = 2 x Lines Per Inch (lpi). As an example, if you need to scan an image for reproduction (printing) at 133 lpi, scan your image at 266 ppi (or dpi); assuming reproduction at 100%.
