We recommend you compress your work before sending, so that it will upload faster and be easier to track. If using a PC, WinZip® or Stuffit® work well, or on a MAC, Stuffi®t and Zipi®t work nicely. Feel free to contact us for assistance.

We Can Accept Files via FTP or Email.

If your file is 10MB (megabytes) or less, email will be fine. If it is larger than 10MB, then FTP will be better for us to receive the file. Upon completion of the upload, it is helpful to send an email to your customer service representative or account executive to inform them of the upload.

Files over 400MB should be burned to CD/DVD and mailed to us.
