Sending Artwork

Templates for all of our products are available – just ask customer service and they’ll email a PDF version for your layout. Also check out our Popular Dies & Templates section – PDF templates are available there for some of our most popular products.

Please make sure to keep the template as a separate layer in your artwork so it will be not be a part of your final product.

File Formats:
For highest project quality it is preferred that you submit files as press ready PDF files.

The Leslie Company Art Department supports Adobe Creative Suite CC (Creative Cloud) files (InDesign, Illustrator & Photoshop). Microsoft Word, CorelDraw and Quark files must be converted to press ready PDFs to be submitted.

If sending PDF or EPS files, please embed all images and convert all typefaces to outlines.

If you wish to send native InDesign files, please use the “Package” feature to ensure all fonts and images are sent as well as the .indd file. If sending native Illustrator files, be certain to  embed all links and send the typefaces or convert them to outlines. If sending native Photoshop files, please keep files as layers and be sure to send the fonts or rasterize the type.

Orders cannot be entered and proofs produced until all artwork is delivered; missing elements will delay your order.

All images included need to have a resolution of 300 pixels per inch at the final size they are to be used. All artwork should be sent as either CMYK or Pantone spot colors, depending on the desired final output. Low resolution, RGB files are not accepted.

Our  FTP site allows you to save artwork on our server.

It is best to use an FTP client software to access the site; it is difficult for us to diagnose network connection problems if you attempt to upload directly from your desktop.  If you don’t already have a favorite FTP software,  you might try  FileZilla, which is free and easy to use.

In your FTP client, enter the following settings:

Host:  ftp://ftp.leslieco.com
username: Leslie (case sensitive)
password: art (case sensitive)

Please send an email to art@leslieco.com when your file has uploaded so we know it’s there!
