JPG, PDF, and Scans

Frequently our customers email content for their printing. This works well as long as the document being sent is in the best format for printing.



JPG files are the best way to send photographs, as long as they are sent in the proper resolution. Good resolution for most photos is 300 dpi (dots per inch).



Text documents, however, do NOT print well as jpg files. They need to be sent in pdf format. Type is clearer and more readable from a pdf document.

Scans are an effective way to send hard copy electronically. Each scanner has controls that will allow scanning as either pdf or jpg.

Remember photos are jpg, jpgicon  text is pdf. pdf-icon  Most scanners also allow resolution selection. We recommend 300 dpi as the most satisfactory resolution. Good enough for clarity and small enough for transmission.

Remember, if you have questions, or need to know something we haven’t addressed here, we’re available 8 to 5 Monday through Friday, including over the noon hour.
