ORDERING FROM PERSONALIZED PAPER MANUFACTURING GROUP

Once an order is processed you will be unable to make any changes.  Although, if your order is still under “Pending”, (assuming it has not printed...if it has been printed you are responsible for the cost of the merchandise printed) please call our Customer Service at 800-921-1322 to cancel or make changes to the order.  Typically, orders are transferred from “Pending” to “Processed” within 20 minutes of placing an order.   Please be advised there is a $10.00 change order fee and/or cancelation fee.

We have prepared the following guide to assist you with your electronic file preparation and submission. If you have a specific problem that is not covered in this guide, or have other questions, please feel free to contact us. Improperly prepared files can cause delays in manufacturing.

Copy and Pasting Images from the Internet

Do not copy and paste images from the internet. Internet images are low resolution and are not suitable for quality printing. You will need to upload the original graphic file in an acceptable file format listed below.

Acceptable File Formats

High Resolution PDF (*.pdf) (Recommended)

PNG Image (*.png) (Recommended)

JPEG Image (*.jpg, *.jpeg) (Recommended)

EPS Image (*.eps)

PSD Image (*.psd)

Adobe Illustrator (*.ai)

Unacceptable Formats

Microsoft Programs: Word, Excel, Powerpoint, and Publisher. You will need to convert your document to a High Resolution PDF if you have designed your product in one of these programs.

All other file extensions will need to be converted to one of the Acceptable Files Formats listed above .

Page Setup

When setting up your page, set up the page in the exact size of the product you wish to order.  Leave a 1/4" margin on all sides; do not place text or images in the 1/4" margin. The exception to this page set up is if you have a bleed. See Bleeds below.

Bleeds

A product you design that has a bleed must be formatted to the size of the product you are ordering; plus you would add 1/8" on all sides to accommodate the bleed.

Resolution

All documents should be prepared in at least 300 dpi of the final print size. Higher resolution files will produce a more detailed image.

Color Settings

Create your document in CMYK mode so that the colors that you see on the screen most closely match the final printed product.

Important Notification

Personalized Paper Manufacturing Group prints millions of custom products annually and our customers are delighted with the products we provide. However, on rare occasions, customers have very specific color, formatting, and registration requirements. The only way to determine if the product you are ordering matches your specific color, formatting, and registration requirements, is for you to pay for an actual printed proof and see if the actual printed product matches your specifications. Personalized Paper Manufacturing Group will be happy to send you a printed proof for a non-refundable charge of $30.00. If you submit an order and do not request a hard copy color proof, your order will be printed as is. Personalized Paper Manufacturing Group will not be liable for color, formatting, or registration variation from the PDF proof visualized either on a computer screen or printed out on your printer.

Approval of your online order signifies you will accept the merchandise as printed and you waive our offer of a printed proof.

DESIGN STUDIO QUESTIONS

That's because of one of two things:

1.  You uploaded a low resolution image probably copied from the internet or you uploaded an image that was scanned.  Quality print requires the original graphic file of the image. If the image was copied from the internet or scanned, this will produce a non printable file.

2.  You took a small graphic image and tried to make it larger, and it became pixilated.  You cannot take small images and make them larger without losing clarity.

Your computer screen is showing limited pixels.  Click on "Zoom In" to eliminate the issue.

Click on the options box...hold your mouse button down and drag it off the design.

Obviously, it depends on the font style, but as a rule of thumb, anything below a font size 7 is not easily readable.

While you can create a notepad with a solid ink background (this is called floodcoating), we will not process your order because flooding the sheet with ink will significantly reduce the integrity of the paper and make it impossible to write on.  If you are looking for a paper color, select from the available colors per individual product.  This does not apply to cover stock used for spiral notebooks as an example.

PRODUCTS

Yes, we do offer recycled paper.  You can choose recycled paper under our paper options.

We can provide samples of previous work we’ve done.  To receive a sample, go to the product you are interested in purchasing...click on the Help tab...and complete the information requested.

We do not print on envelopes.

We do have the capability to produce custom sized products.  However, the availability of printing custom sized products is based upon our current order backlog as well as the quantity you are ordering.  Please call our Customer Support Team at 800-921-1322 for more details.

PRINTING

We print using digital presses, which provides the highest quality print available.

PRICING

With each product page there is a Price Calculator.  At the bottom of the calculator after you select your options, you are given the option to print out your quote or have it emailed.

We only charge sales tax for customers in the state of New Mexico and to orders shipped to Canada.

SHIPPING AND DELIVERY

Shipping cost is determined by the weight of an order shipped from our facility in Albuquerque, New Mexico to your location.  Remember, paper is extremely heavy.  To determine the shipping cost, complete Step 1 and Step 2 in the pricing calculator found on the left side of each product page.  You will see that the calculator has given you the cost of the product as well as the weight.  Now scroll to the very bottom of the page and click on Shipping Calculator.
