Printing Tips

If submitting a hard copy to be used as an original, make sure it is clean and of good quality. Avoid using
originals that have smudges or messy corrections and try to leave a 1/4 inch margin around your pages.
Maximum size for scanning is 11 x 17.


If document was created electronically please send job as a pdf file. Having an electronic file ensures copies
to be the best quality.


When submitting documents to enlarge please make sure you send a high-resolution file. Do not send
images from the web, these do not enlarge well and the image appears blurry.


Be mindful of the size of the piece you are having printed or designed. We can change the size if needed
but this will increase your graphics charges.


Remember that Prairie Lakes AEA is unable to do personal printing orders and cannot print any order that
contains paid advertising.


The print staff will make every effort to complete your order by your requested date. Jobs requiring graphic
design work, proofs or extensive bindery will require additional time to complete.


If your material is copyrighted, please send a copy of the permission to reprint with the request.


Ask for the expertise of our graphic designer whenever possible.
