Additional Notes for submitting Images to ensure quality:
1. Attach the submissions and all art files individually in the next section of this form. Please do not compress. If they are too large, email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
2. Image quality should be 300 dpi (minimum) and submitted in CMYK color scheme if possible.
3. If images have been altered in Photoshop/Illustrator/other program, both the original and the retouched imagine should be submitted. This is because not all touch ups work well in print, even though they look good on the computer screen. If we have both, we can usually ensure a good reproduction.
4. When scanning or photographing art, use the highest possible dpi, and scan/shoot/submit files in color unless the original is grayscale.
5. Computer-generated graphics should not contain live type--any type should be converted to art prior to submission. (This eliminates all the font and cross-platform issues).
6. Computer-generated graphics should be saved as .jpg or .tif files. (High resolution tiffs are preferred).
7. Graphics/images imbedded in documents are not acceptable; they must be submitted separately, in their original format.
