Please follow the guidelines below when submitting artwork for Large Format Printing:

  • Save your final artwork at least as 100 dpi at full size
  • If the graphics are saved as vector art, resolution doesn't matter. The files may be sent at full size or scaled down proportionally
  • If scaling down, a preferred ratio is 1" = 1' when at full size. Any ratio is acceptable as long as the scale is specified
  • When sending the final artwork to Garner Printing, please save all files as CMYK
  • Outline all fonts and embed all images
  • Include all artwork in the native file format (Illustrator, Photoshop, InDesign, etc). We accept .ai, .eps, .pdf, .psd, .tif

It goes without saying that we appreciate your attention to detail (but we'll say it anyway). Thanks ahead of time for double-checking your work against our guidelines. When your final files are ready to send to press, please either email them or upload them to our FTP site. Please contact your Garner Print Representative for your user name and password.

Garner has an in-house letterpress department for custom die-cut pieces like door hangers, point-of-purchase displays, packaging materials, presentation folders, and much more. Our state of the art die-cutter can die cut pieces from 4 pt to 60pt thickness.


At Garner, our full service finishing department means your job stays in-house for a variety of bindery needs - folding, collating, stitching and more. We strive to maintain the highest quality, efficiency, and accuracy standards.

Binding - Stitching

No matter what your project calls for, Garner can handle all of the finishing work, quickly, accurately, and cost-effectively.

Mailing Capabilities

After a project prints, many times the next (and more costly) step is getting the piece in the mail. Garner's in-house mailing services deliver maximum accuracy and savings. We're open 24 hours a day, so we can easily accommodate your time-critical mailings and handle multiple mail drops.

Rest assured your data is secure. We handle all data internally including programming, management, even the purchase of mail lists. This means we can take your project from procuring mail list to addressing, complete the personalization, and mail dropping across the nation.

In order to get you the absolute lowest postal rates, we always:

  • NCOA certify to reduce returned mail and lower overall postal costs; and
  • CASS certify to ensure you pay the lowest possible mailing rate.

Variable Print

Adding personalization and variable print can add definite impact to your project (and your ROI). Personalization can also lower your cost per response while increasing response rates dramatically. Garner can quickly and professionally personalize any number of pieces for the recipient, whether full-color or black and white.

Variable Black and Color Imaging

Our variable print software enables you to personalize text, graphics, images, charts, and more. We can also add dynamic maps that lead customers or prospects directly to your location.


For many companies, storing and maintaining inventory can quickly become a full-time proposition. Trying to keep track of multiple versions and knowing when to destroy old pieces can take up a lot of valuable time, and errors in these areas can be costly.

Kitting and Fulfillment

Garner's fulfillment services mean you can get out of the warehousing business and concentrate on your core business. Our fulfillment services include:

  • Secure storage in a climate controlled facility
  • Real-time inventory counts
  • 24/7 web-based reporting
  • Online order placement
  • Automatic email alerts at predetermined inventory levels
  • Print-on-demand capabilities
  • Kit assembly

Our two-stage quality control means your orders are fulfilled quickly and accurately. Because we're centrally located in the U.S., FedEx, UPS, the USPS and freight shipping costs and times are kept at a minimum.

What does this mean for you? When you use Garner's 35,000 square foot fulfillment center you can:

  • Reduce your own warehouse and storage expenses
  • Easily keep track of multiple versions
  • Get real-time inventory updates and usage reports
  • Efficiently manage your inventory - not just printed pieces, but promotional items, kits, and more

Online Ordering

RRD ConnectOne Storefront contains powerful features to manage print ordering and fulfillment for items such as commercial print, digital print-on-demand, promotional items, direct mail, template-based documents, forms, kits, pick-and-pack items, and rollouts and pushes. Our easy-to-use online interface guides you through quick and intuitive workflows that communicate directly with our extensive operations and fulfillment network.

Digital Asset Management

Digital Asset Management brings all your company's valuable files together in a controlled, easy-to-use, online library. This tool helps your designers store and search for photos, graphics, logos, brochures or anything else shared across your company.

Because your assets are fully accessible, your people become more productive. Designers spend more time creating rather than tracking down files, checking for errors, and obtaining approvals. Individuals and groups become more collaborative and innovative, because they can see all the assets available and share throughout your company.

Each Digital Asset Management solution is company-branded with your colors and logos and can be accessed from any web browser anywhere in the world.
