Summit Graphics is always willing to work with your supplied artwork. However, the artwork must be designed in a software or file media supported by Summit. To minimize art charges, art work should follow the workflow specified. This information will assist you in the preparation of your digitally submitted artwork in a manner that is compliant with Summit Graphics existing software and hardware platforms. We are not responsible for workflow interruption or failure to print due to known or unknown software issues.
If you are unfamiliar with the technical specifications required, training is available upon your request.
Artwork may be submitted digitally via a disk or email.
DISK: All disks must be clearly labeled with company name and file name(s). A print-out of the contents of the disk with the particular files highlighted is also acceptable.
EMAIL: Artwork should be emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org. We ask that you please call and let us know the file is coming incase of misdirected emails or any other problems. Maximum email attachment size is 50mb.
PAPER PROOFS: All customer-supplied files must be submitted with a paper proof. Colors can be matched only if the paper proof is a color proof. The factory may not be held responsible for output in the absence of a Paper Proof. Factory is not responsible for files improperly set up to print as Paper Proof exemplifies. If artwork is emailed and color matching is a concern, you must approve a color paper proof of the artwork. You may come in to approve it or have the proof sent to you. Summit may not be held responsible for output if the customer chooses not to view and approve a color paper proof.

Individuals with RGB scanners and RGB cameras, we recommend that you submit your RGB files in Adobe RGB 1998 Color Space.
Bitmaps. Bitmap images must be 100% of scale. Resolution minimum of 200 pixels/inch and a maximum of 300 pixels/inch. For maximum sharpness bitmaps should be originated at 100% of final output size.
