Heath Press accepts Photoshop files that have been saved into TIF,
EPS, DCS or JPEG format. The following instructions show how this
is accomplished. For a listing of all supported file formats and
for general file setup help
please visit our Setup Guidelines page.
This information is relevant if you are building your entire layout
in Photoshop - for all general concerns regarding images, please
see the General File Preparation page.
Keep in mind
that smaller text may appear slightly "fuzzy." If your
design uses small text (18 pt and below), it is recommended that
you build your file in a graphics or page layout program and then
send us a PDF or EPS (see above) or save out an EPS from Photoshop
that includes "Vector Data" (see below).
Build files at least 300 dpi (400 dpi is preferable) at 100% of
output size, and in the cmyk colorspace.
Formats accepted: TIF, EPS, JPEG (set compression at highest quality
Turn off any clipping paths, remove any extra channels.
If saving as EPS, make sure that preview is set to Macintosh or
TIFF, 8-bits /pixel, and Encoding is set to Binary
You can "Save a Copy..." as an EPS out of a Photoshop
layered file and check "Include Vector Data" to
maintain crisp text from a Photoshop file (see below). This
works only in version 6 or higher and the type layer must
not be rasterized. If you send us a Photoshop EPS that contains
vector data, please also include the layered file that it
was generated from. After the correct settings have been applied
in the "Color" and "Features" sections,
return to the "Options" section and save your file
