How to send QuarkXPress files

The following guidelines are intended to assist you in submitting QuarkXPress files in a manner that will make your files completely press-ready. If corrections or modifications are required, your order may be delayed pending clarification or approval, and if necessary, extra charges may be assessed. If there is something that is not addressed or is not clear to you, please do not hesitate to contact us for clarification and additional information.

For documents created in QuarkXPress, we recommend utilizing the feature “Collect for Output.” This feature is a pull down under the “File” menu. Be sure to select with a check ‘Layout’, ‘Linked Pictures’, ‘Embedded Pictures’, ‘Screen Fonts’, and ‘Printer Fonts’. If you use a Server to store images, fonts, etc., you must be connected to the Server in order for this feature to gather all linked items/fonts used by your document. It cannot find images that you have linked to your document that are stored elsewhere on the internet – at another website for example. Those images must be available on your server or workstation to be collected.

The above is necessary in order to make your graphic files print accurately and with all the detail that they are capable of, particularly those QuarkXPress files that have linked graphics.
