What happens if I forget?
But, if you forget and send us Adobe InDesign or Illustrator files without embedding the images, we will see warning markers by the missing images when we open the file. In the Links Menu, we can see what the image files were named (see illustration below).
If we printed this file, it would print without images or would print a low-resolution, pixelated version of the image in its place.
It is not necessary to embed your images if you link your images then Package your Adobe files for output (File > Package...) before sending them to us. Compress the resulting packaged folder (Finder > File> Compress) and send the .zip file to us. Sending us a packaged file will insure we have all related images and fonts, and give us the ability to troubleshoot for best results when necessary.
