PDF and PostScript Files

We prefer to have Postscript files or PDF files that have been created using the Xerox Docutech 135, Nuvera 120, or CANON ImagePRESS 6000 VP drivers. If you are using any of the software listed above you can provide us with native files, however, PDF & PS files eliminate many reflow problems. If providing native files make sure your disk contains all supporting files and fonts (printer & screen). Create a separate folder with the files to be output. If you need information on how to postscript your document for Docutech please download and read instructions.

Specific Problems Regarding Microsoft Word Documents

Microsoft Word is a word processing program! It is not intended to be a page layout program. While there are features for this use, they are very limited and subject to various flaws. When transferring files between computers and switching between printers, Microsoft Word will reflow all of the text in the document in order to better accommodate the intended output device. Unfortunately there is no way to stop this from happening. Reflow of the documents varies with the length of the document and the amount of text that is filling each page. When we open the native files on our machine and print to any or our production printers, the program will reflow the document according to the specifications provided by the printer description file. Having the PPD installed on your machine and selected as the chosen printer when creating the file will help diminish the effect but will not stop the reflow in all cases. We will be happy to accept your native Microsoft Word files and output them, however we cannot correct the problems that are inherent in the program. In order to completely avoid this situation a true page layout program, such as 'FrameMaker', 'QuarkXPress' or 'InDesign' should be used.
