Software Applications / Programs Compatibility
Applications we use:
We can read any files in MAC platformed Quark. (In some
cases, we can read cross platform PC Quark files, but only
if they are the same version number as ours. However, text
might reflow because of the difference between MAC and PC
fonts, so we would like to avoid accepting PC Quark files
Adobe Illustrator 6.0

us any QuarkExpress (or Adobe Illustrator) files, PLEASE

GRAPHICS (either TIFF or EPS files) you used in your Quark

we need them to be distilled properly so they can be reproduced
onto our papers without any problems. Please make sure to
note the following instructions when you (or your designers)
convert your layouts into PDFs:
- Embed ALL the FONTS.
- If your ad is BLACK & WHITE, use GRAYSCALE MODE
PHOTOS / GRAPHICS ONLY (or Bitmap Mode for line art.)
- If your ad is in FULL-COLOR, use CMYK MODE PHOTOS /
- Please, Please DO NOT USE RGB COLOR MODE photos, graphics......
(Only CMYK or Pantone Uncoated Color for the spot color

before you distill your files. It is very important that
your files recognize the locations of all the photos /
graphics when you convert them into PDFs.
