Adobe InDesign CS6 documents are preferred. Supporting graphics should be EPS vector files or TIFF images. Include all fonts.

No RGB images. Especially those with black or very dark areas. Everything is ultimately converted to CMYK and the colors will look different on press.
Receipts are gang-printed with other graphics on a large format web press. Adjustments may be necessary for: font conflicts, complex graphics, flattening, rasterization, etc.
Include spot colors in layouts and logos where applicable. PMS colors will be converted at press.
