Here are some guidelines when you are submitting a design file to us. Should you encounter a specific issue not addressed in this guide or have additional questions, please don’t hesitate to reach out. It’s crucial to ensure that your files are properly prepared, as improperly formatted files can lead to manufacturing delays.

Bleed & Crop Marks

In printing terminology, the bleed is the extra margin on a print product that is meant to be trimmed off when the product is trimmed to its final size. Bleed basically means that the color and graphics on a product “bleed off the page” to ensure continuity of the color to the edge of your product.

File Color Mode

We require that you provide us with print-ready digital files in CMYK or RGB color mode depending on the product type. Provide all black and white artwork in grayscale color mode. We do not accept any other color mode.

Color Variations

Considering the nature of our full-color printing (CMYK), it’s important to note that we may not reproduce every available color. While we don’t engage in color matching, we adhere to the print industry’s standard for respectable color. We will make reasonable efforts to ensure that your product is printed as closely as possible to the colors you’ve specified.


Resolution is also known as dpi (dots per inch) or ppi (pixels per inch). It indicates the number of colored dots or pixels that make up one image. The higher the dots per inch/pixels per inch, the greater the resolution and the clearer the resulting final print will be. Make sure all elements are set to 300 to 350 dpi (unless otherwise stated). Images taken from the web tend to be low-resolution, which can result in blurry or pixelated prints.


Ensure that your text is easily readable, and please be aware that we do not take responsibility for any spelling errors, including names, dates, times, and places, and so forth. Files errors submitted are not the responsibility of CYPT Memorials.

Photo & Artwork Guidelines

While our prepress department thoroughly reviews all submitted artwork files before printing, it is crucial to note that you bear 100% responsibility for the accuracy of your print-ready artwork files.

We strongly advise careful proofreading before submitting to CYPT Memorials.

Please be aware that we do not assume responsibility for any issues related to the orientation or alignment of the pages in your submitted artwork.


By submitting artwork to CYPT Memorials, you affirm that you have the right to use the image(s) in your artwork files. Avoid sending any “one-of-a-kind” transparencies, prints, or artwork. While we take precautions to safeguard your materials, we are not liable for the loss or damage of images or artwork.

Under these Terms & Conditions, you agree not to upload any artwork files containing offensive, indecent, or improper material, nudity, material that could lead to civil or criminal liability, or any material that could infringe on privacy, publicity, or other intellectual property rights without proper permission.


We may, at our discretion, set limits on the maximum retention period for designs or uploaded files and the
allocated storage space. CYPT Memorials is not accountable for the deletion or failure to store any file, uploaded
or designed on our website.

We retain the right to delete any inactive files without prior notice.

We Reserve The Right To Refuse An Order

We reserve the right to refuse an order based on these reasons or any other reason that may be deemed illegal or infringing on the rights of a third party. You assume full legal liability for the content of the material processed and printed on your behalf.

We retain the right to refuse an order without disclosing a reason.
