Make sure that the PostScript file you use to create the PDF includes 1/8" bleed! (open and check for this in Acrobat... you will see the page size in the lower left hand corner, it should equal the trim size plus .25" on each dimension).

If you do not have the Distiller application or some other way of creating PDFs, you can send us an EPS file from any of the supported applications (see the individual Application sections), just follow the instructions for how to create the EPS file. As a last resort, you can also supply us with application files and all required fonts and links, but this will incur some charges for desktop time.
