Ordering Process:


Preparing Materials:

  • PDF is preferred file format.
  • Allow minimum margins of 5/16″ at the top, bottom and side of each sheet.
    –If you want copy to bleed of the edges, it will need to be run on a larger sheet than your finished size and you will need to include the bleeds in your file
  • When creating your PDF file, choose “print quality” or “press quality”
  • Make sure to embed all fonts
  • Do not compress any images or line art

Following these guidelines will ensure that all the fonts and graphics are embedded within the PDF file at the proper settings for copying/printing at the Copy Center or Printing Services.

If you have any questions about creating a PDF file, contact Barb Reblin at 414-229-2207 or e-mail: breblin@uwm.edu.
