How to create a PDF from your layout file

Once you have saved your design files in their native application format, you will need to export a PDF and upload it to us. We've put together some simple instructions and videos for you, showing you how to save your finished design files as production-ready PDF/X files in the various applications we accept. Following these instructions will ensure smooth processing and the best possible quality.

A very important note: Before you create your PDF, make sure that all guideline elements (the green, pink, and blue lines) are set to non-printing or moved to a background layer behind your art. This will prevent them from printing on your finished product.
