Design Applications + How to Create a PDF
There are several ways to create a PDF. However, not every means offers the same results. Adobe® PDFs have consistently proven to be the most dependable in providing files that assure quality print results.
While we do list several options for applications to use to create PDFs below, we require that the final be a PDF. This makes the entire printing process easier, saves you money, and ensures that your final prints turn out just the way you envisioned.
Applications & File Types That Can be Used to Generate PDFs
The following are applications and file types, for both PC and Mac, can be used to generate PDFs or can otherwise be converted to the PDF format we need for printing:
Adobe Acrobat PDF
*These files must first be provided to us in a PDF file
If you are using an application of file type not listed here, please contact us as it may be possible for us to accept other formats. Please note, however, that submitting your files in PDF format (with bleed) is the best way to ensure that your project will travel smoothly through our production system. Projects that are submitted as native application files (I.e., Adobe InDesign, etc.) or that have not been properly converted to PDF format will be subject to additional processing charges and may delay the completion of your project if they are incorrect.
If you have any questions about file format or file preparation, please don’t hesitate to call us at CustomerService@KingstonPrinting.com or by calling 785-690-7222.
Why Adobe® PDFs?
Adobe neatly packages everything we need in one file. It eliminates the need to have all the fonts and image files (links) that are used in the original art file, allows for smaller file sizes which helps ensure fast and reliable uploads, and the files can be made press-ready more accurately.
