    The products that have the option for round corners are: Business Cards, Bookmarks, Club Flyers, Collectors Cards, Hang Tags, Folded Hang Tags, and Postcards.
  • Will Brightium make any changes to my account information?

If you wish to change any information on your account such as your email address, phone number, password, etc., you must do so yourself by logging in to your account. This prevents unauthorized persons from making any changes to your account.
  • Can I request a quote?
    Pricing estimates (including delivery & processing) are available on any of our product information pages throughout the site.
  • What is the production time?
    Production time is the time it takes to print, cut and prepare your order before shipping out. The specific time for your product can be found on our website on the Turnaround Time page.
  • Can I place an order through the phone?
    Yes, you can place and order through the phone and you can also place your orders online.
  • How do I upload files for calendars and catalogs/booklets?
    You may upload your calendar and catalog/booklet files by sending us a separate file for each page. Keep in mind that each page refers to one side of a sheet of paper. Commonly, we ask our customers to send us separate pages (files) when uploading because it is the easiest way. This way, once the separate pages are reviewed, we will place the spreads together ourselves. For instance, if you were to upload a 12-page catalog, page 2 and 11 would need to be placed next to each other, as they will be printed side by side (page 2 on the right and 11 on the left). Most customers find it best to send us separate pages since it is less confusing. In addition, to ensure that we set up the page order correctly, we recommend that you either upload a low-resolution PDF dummy or send us a hard copy proof with the page numbers clearly indicated on each page.
  • Can I order quantities not on the website?
    You can only order quantities that are listed on the website. You may not order other quantities, because quantities are set due to the presses we use. Since we print gang-run offset, we require large quantities to print the products. You might consider submitting multiple orders for quantities not listed on the website.
  • How do I submit a reorder?
    First, you need to log into your account, click on "My Orders", then on the order number, and finally, click on "Reorder". Lastly, you will proceed to check out.
  • What is the maximun file size that I can upload?
    Maximum file size for uploads: 75MB (megabytes) per file.
  • What method of payments do you accept?
    We accept the following payment methods on our secure site: Credit card (VISA, Mastercard, American Express, Discover) PayPal Venmo Cashapp Zelle
  • How do I place an order online?
    First, you will need to register online and create a free account. You will then need to log in with your email address and password before completing your order.
  • How may I send the files?
    You may upload your files directly to our website or send us an email with your files.
  • Can I upload a file that has multiple PDF pages?
    We recommend that each file has at the maximum, two pages (front and back). Uploading several PDF pages in a file causes confusion and problems when reordering.
  • What changes can I make to a reorder?
    You can only change the quantity of a reorder. For all other changes, you will need to place a new order.
  • Do I have to order a minimum quantity?
    Not necessarily. Only some of our products require a minimum order. When applicable, the minimum quantity is displayed on the product page and when searching the product category.
  • Why didn’t I receive a proof after I placed a reorder?
    All reorders are printed with the original submitted files. We do not provide proofs for reorders because the proof was already provided with the original order.
  • Can I upload new files after my order is approved or in production?
    Once your order status changes to "Approved" or "In Print", you cannot send us new files. Orders are charged after the files have been approved, and will automatically go to print.
  • What is a reupload, and where do I reupload?
    We send you a reupload link when we find a problem with your submitted files. We ask you to fix your files and reupload them so that we can process your proof. If you have not requested a proof, you must reupload your files so that we can ensure they are ready for print. The email we send contains a reupload link, which will automatically update your account with the new files.
  • Why does my new proof look the same as my previous proof?
    Your browser is probably storing images in its cache for faster loading. If you refresh your browser, it should direct the browser to update all images. If you still do not see the updated proof, you should try viewing the proof in a different browser or on a different computer.
  • What size of type is too small for print?
    This depends on the type of font you are using on your file. We recommend for you to print a sample from your home printer to get an idea of how large or small the font is.
  • What does a “low resolution” image mean?
    A low-resolution image contains a lower number of dots, pixels, or lines per inch. The print quality of a low-resolution image is less than that of a high-resolution image, as it lacks sharpness and fine detail. Thus, the higher the dots per inch/pixels per inch, the greater the resolution and the clearer the final print will be.
  • How will I receive my proof?
    Both PDF and .JPG Proof High Res. Proof will be emailed to you.
  • How can I color match my files with what is printed?
    We do not guarantee a 100% color match, but we do guarantee a 85% color match to industry standards, due to the type of printing we offer. Thus, there may be up to a 15% color shift on your final printed product.
  • Will you match and print from PANTONE® colors?
    We do not print from PANTONE® colors; you are responsible for providing us the CMYK files.
  • How long until I receive a first proof?
    For Manually Processed Proofs, please allow up to 24 hours (1 business day) for all products. Please allow 24-72 hours for hard copy proofs for multi-page products such as catalogs/booklets, calendars, and folders.
  • Is it OK to send folder files as 2 separate 9¨ X 12¨ files?
    We will not be able to accept two separate 9" x 12" files. You must send us the flat size, not the folded size. Be sure to send us the correct size of the folder, and proper placement of graphics and text.
  • Does a 4/4 folder has pockets included? Are they considered the front or back?
    Our folders include a right pocket. All folders are processed flat, meaning that the pockets are printed as the outside (front), but folded inside (back) (4/0). The back or the inside of the folder is the area behind the pocket where the folder is assembled.
  • Can I make any changes to my files before printing?
    You may make changes to your files before your order status is “approved” or "in print." If we find any problems with your files and have not sent you a proof yet, we will ask you to fix your files and reupload. If we have already sent you a proof and you wish to make changes to your order, do not approve the proof. Instead, you will need to submit a new file with the changes. However, there will be a fee for processing the new files and creating a new proof.
  • Can you provide a check-list for print-ready file?
    The following check-list will help ensure that your files are print-ready. We ONLY accept .JPG file formats. Be sure that all files have been converted to CMYK color mode. All images need to be uploaded at a resolution of 350 dpi (signage should be 150 dpi). Please provide the correct bleed. For the bleed for your product, refer to the bleed section. Outline all fonts when working in Illustrator, embed fonts in other programs, and flatten all layers when working in Photoshop. Include all files needed to process the job: page layout files, imported images, fonts and other support files. Please compress your file(s) (2MB or larger) before uploading your files.
  • What is a proof?
    When you upload your files to our website, you will have the option to request a proof of your designs. This proof is basically a preview or a picture of what your designs look like. There are 2 types of proofs available; the manually processed PDF proof and .JPG Proof High Res. Proof (not all products have all 2 proof types available). For the Manually Processed Proofs (both PDF and .JPG Proof High Res. Proof), you will upload your files and we will check your files to ensure that they are print-ready. If we find any problems with your files, we will notify you so that you can reupload your files; if we do not find any problems with your files, we will send you a proof (preview) of your designs for you to approve. Both the PDF and JGP proof will be emailed to you.
  • Will there be a problem if my file includes a 0.1¨ bleed, but the image stops at the trimming line?
    If you do so, it may cause a problem. You must extend all images all the way to the bleed lines to avoid any uneven borders or white lines on your image when your product is trimmed.
  • What is bleed?
    Bleed is the portion of the product that will be trimmed off when it is cut to the final size. Since we print your product on an oversized sheet that gets trimmed down, we require that the images extend beyond the trim zone/line. That extra margin is what we refer to as the bleed, and is used to guarantee that you don't have white edges on your product when it is trimmed to size.
  • What does waiting for approval mean?
    This means that we have provided you (via e-mail) a low-resolution proof to approve so your order will go to print, and are awaiting your approval.
  • How do I determine how many pages are in my calendars and brochures?
    Each 4/0 file for our calendars and catalogs/booklets counts as 1 page, so if the order is for an 8-page 8.5" x 11" catalog, we would then need to have 8 separate 8.5" x 11" files.
  • Why do you not recommend having borders?
    Borders are not recommended due to possible shifting in the cutting process. Shifting may cause borders to appear uneven on the final product.
  • Why is the requirement 150 dpi resolution for signage, and 350 dpi for other products?
    Since these products are printed with our digital printers, they can be uploaded at 150 dpi and will still appear crisp and beautiful.
  • Can I use some of my website art for my design?
    When preparing artwork, DO NOT copy and paste an image off a website. These images have a low resolution and are not suitable for high-quality printing, not to mention that images that are not your own and are found on the Internet, may be copyrighted.
  • What is pixelation? Where can I get a better image?
    Your original file needs to be created at a resolution of 350 dpi, with the exception of signage, which can be created at 150 dpi. Images taken from the Internet have a low resolution of 72 dpi and will be pixelated. If purchasing an image from a source, please make sure that you choose a high-resolution image of 350 dpi.
  • Where does the business card slit go on the folders?
    We offer business card slits on the right pockets.
  • Should I submit files with guidelines?
    We need the files without the guidelines.
  • What type of software or applications do you support?
    We work with all of the common software and applications such as Adobe Creative Suite 3 (Acrobat, Illustrator, Photoshop), QuarkXPress 7, and CorelDraw.
  • What colors should I avoid when designing?
    Although we do not guarantee 100% color matching, we recommend limited usage of blues and reds, simply because they are the hardest colors to match. We also recommend limited usage of dark and heavy colors on uncoated stock (or on 70 lb. Opaque Smooth White), because the paper may soak in the color and offset.
