All individual images, illustrations, and tints should be in CMYK
• All black text and line work should be single color black, overprinted on other colors if necessary
• Fine lines, serifs and other graphics should be single color where possible
• File resolution should be 300 ppi
• Placed image resolutions should be 140 ppi or higher, preferably 300-350 ppi and always should be placed at the desired resolution and final output size
• Total Ink Coverage (The sum of the C+M+Y+K inks) should not be more than 280 in more than a 10% area of any page. Use the GCR function in Adobe Creative Suite to manage.
