  • why does this not work?

    i have completed a piece of artwork in illustrator cs. the printer does not accept ill files so i have had to export it as legacy eps. when i do this i have included crop marks and 3ml bleed all around.. but i have just had a call from the printer that they have received the file without any bleed or crop marks!! why is this? am i doing something wrong?
    i love work...

    Wack it in Quark or In design and use the crop and bleed there...

      A printer not excepting Illustrator files? What kind of printer is this? Is the file all vector art? Did you view your eps with crops and bleeds? Output a laser and see if the crops and bleeds print. If it is all vector they may be able to enlarge the image on their end (that depends though).

          If it has bleeds then they do not need the crop marks. Assuming you added 1/8 of bleed all around (I work in inches) they should be able the figure it out and place the image themselves! This is basic stuff for printers to deal with. Just tell them what the final size is. Also get some sort of proof.

            Thanks for your help. Unfortunatly the client I am dealing with always uses this particular printer and every time I do some work for this client I always have some sort of problem with the printer!!!! And every time, i start worrying that it is something that i did wrong, when i know that i prepared artwork with bleeds etc....!!

              If it's to much for this printer to handle, then do what mitch wood sugested. Place in Quark or Indesign, pagemaker and send those files.

                Sounds like the printer should be able to relate to RageMaker.

                  Ya right! Ah we don't have Indesign, can you save it UP to a Pagemaker file? Thanks.

                        I never heard of a printer who did not have Illustrator. Just curious, where are they located?

                          They will 'stretch it out'

                          ooo boy.
                          LOL!

                          I hope you gave them some kind of output percentage, size, or hard copy.

                            That doesn't always work. There are web tricks out there that make doing that give you a blank file.

                            Thanks PrintDriver. These are images downloaded from Ancestry.com and show census forms etc. I'll contact them and see if they can help.

                            Monitors are sort of a matter of opinion.
