Trade Printing

Print Brokers | Graphic Designers | Ad Agencies | & More


Trade Printing Defined
As a trade printer we offer printing materials to print brokers, graphic designers, ad agencies, and other printing businesses at a wholesale rate. When shipping an order to the end user on behalf of you, the reseller, our name or other identifying information does not appear anywhere on or within the packaging.

A trade printer does not have contact with the reseller's clients without the reseller's permission. A trade printer will sell printing at wholesale prices, allowing the reseller to mark up printing prices to market comparable retail rates. As a reseller you may simply be placing orders and having them shipped directly to your clients while others may be designing the piece, getting print bids, attending press runs and delivering the final product to the customer.

How should I prepare a file for printing?

Preferred format: A Print Ready .pdf file 


We recommended a minimum of 300dpi, converted to CMYK colorspace, all fonts outlined AND embedded. Specify your trim area with crop marks (Don't place crop marks inside the work area). Make sure you have a minimum of 1/8" (0.125") BLEED on all edges of your job, and a 1/8" (0.125") SAFE area that has all critical design element such as text, pulled away from trim.

Following these guidelines, and carefully checking the PDF before uploading will greatly reduce the possibility of error and accelerate your job through production.
