Setting up the print job yourself?

Design Works is not responsible for spelling errors or color matching from outside files. A one-inch color test strip is recommended. Design Works can print from many different graphics and word processing programs - please call ahead to check on compatibility.

Remember, files downloaded from the web, when enlarged, will become fuzzy or blurred. We do not recommend their use in large format printing.
