Monarch Plastics has a state of the art computer graphics department with a highly trained staff. We support both Macintosh and PC file types. Please send all files associated with your document including fonts and linked artwork. Most publishing programs include a "collect" or "package for output" function that will save a complete set of files for a given document. Reverse type should not be smaller than 8 point.
In order to maintain an efficient workflow and better meet your need, we request that you send
electronic files in the following formats:
We prefer .eps or .tif. Save files in CMYK mode, as RGB mode may produce unexpected results. Minimum dpi should be 300 (600 is preferred) for images reproduced at 100 percent of original size. Enlargements should be higher resolution. Setting type in Photoshop is not recommended, but if you must set type in Photoshop, please make sure that all type layers remain and include all font files used. Maximum total ink density should be set to 280 for all Photoshop files.
InDesign is the preferred page layout program.We can accept CS5 and older versions.
