Printing & Design Guidelines

At Allen Printing, we design and print all kinds and sizes of documents and print materials. Contact your customer service representative to get the specific details on how you should submit your artwork or files for printing.

Questions you might ask include:

  • What dimensions should my artwork be?
  • Does my artwork need a bleed or creep area?
  • How do I set up my artwork if it has unusual folds or die-cuts?
  • What kind of file type do you need?
  • What materials or paper size can you print on?
  • When can I expect a proof to approve?
  • When can I expect to receive my final product?
