Preparing files for imaging
We feature EFI and Onyx rips to drive our large format inkjets and they are calibrated to do an amazing job of color consistency and handling file size enlargements. Please don’t try to wrestle files built at 100% of final output size at 300 DPI. We recommend the following spec’s for optimum output.
1. Build your file at 25% of final output size at 300 DPI. Of course, any size over 25% of file size (50%, 75%, 100% etc.) is fine but not necessary.
2. Provide files in a CMYK color space. RGB files are acceptable and if you are unsure on how best to convert to CMYK, let us do it for you.
3. Keep in mind resolution quality. Pulling a file off a web site at 72 DPI is not going to look great blown up to 4 feet high. We have specific software that can handle extreme enlargments much better than Photoshop, so let us handle that for you as well. Talk to your sales rep or customer service agent for details.
4. It is ok to embed files as long as you are sure we will no have to manipulate them outside of the RIP software. When in doubt, send the files.
5. Remember to send your fonts, or create outlines in a vector program.
6. We support just about any file format out there, so unless it came free in your Fruit Loops box, chances are excellent we can handle it.
7. Mac and PC files accepted.

What services does The Digital Frontier Provide?
We offer digital imaging, offset printing, and support services, including large format inkjet, digital prepress, tradeshow coordination, and business development services. We also offer a full range of finishing services, including mounting, lamination, and bindery.
I want to print with variable data, can you help?
Yes, we can help you not only with cleaning up your database for print, but we have people that can help show you how to increase your response on investment and maximize your mailing campaign.
How do I know if I should print digital or offset?
With the printing technology we have at The Digital Frontier, we feel the issues are no longer what prints better but cost and schedule. The quality differences of the past are no more, it’s really more about timeframe and specific capabilities.
Why should I use you over an Internet printer?
While internet pricing offers costs that in many cases are amazing, often times we can compete on pricing - especially once issues like shipping costs are calculated. By using a local printer, you get the customer service you should expect, the flexibility to print on the stocks you want, a quicker total print schedule, and a relationship with a company that cares that it’s printing on the same press sheet as 11 other clients.
My printer is FSC certified. Doesn’t that make them a green printer?
Absolutely not! All FSC certification is concerned with is chain of custody on the paper source. How it’s printed or what type of sustainability impact the print company exists with is of no concern to FSC certification. If you want to know you are printing with the most environmentally friendly printer in Colorado, all you really need to know is The Digital Frontier.
What makes you so green?
It starts with our corporate philosophy, but that doesn’t mean much if our print capabilities aren’t the most environmentally friendly available today. Compare the way we print, the presses and technologies we use to any other printer out there. We print green because it’s what we do, and how we do it. For technical backup, please Be Green.
