Here is a checklist for producing print-ready files, and a guide for postal formatting:
Provide artwork as a high-resolution PDF(s) with bleed and crop marks where applicable. Confirm the order quantity and the preferred option if multiple options were quoted.
E-proofs are provided within 24 hours of receiving print-ready artwork. Physical proofs on Epson printer paper can be provided for a fee, allowing you to review the layout and resolution.
Physical proofs on actual order stocks are not possible due to the nature of commercial printing, but past samples of similar projects can be provided.
See note in Step 5 regarding setups for personalization and variables.
This can be done at any stage. Please ensure the fields are consistently formatted. i.e. separate columns for: name, street address, city, province, postal code.
(An example of a formatted Excel sheet is below)
If there is additional variable data for your project, or if any pieces are to be further personalized, you will receive a secondary merged proof for setup approval.
Personalized letters have a second approval process that involves formatting letter copy and adding the variable copy from the provided Excel file. Live samples are then generated for a final approval to ensure all variables and formatting are correct.
|Title||Name1||Name2||Company Name||Address1||Address2||City||Prov||Post Code||Country||ID #|
|Ms||Jane||Smith||ABC Company||123 Any Street||Unit A||Guelph||ON||A1A 1A1||Canada||10829|
|Mr||Kirk||Barton||Troi Mailing Services||45 Midwest Rd||Unit 16||Toronto||ON||M1P 4Y9||Canada||3491|
The above is a sample of a consistently formatted dataset – your data may have fewer or more fields.

You all did a great job working with me on the project. Now that the sale is being opened up to the public we are shifting dollars into TV and digital. Glad to know I have a reliable, fast, competent and creative private mail team to call on when work arises for Tiger in Toronto.
When I was searching for a company to handle my mailers, Troi was the first company that came up. I contacted them and I’m glad that I did! I have worked with the Troi Mailing & Timeline Printing team (Peter and Ken) for a couple of years now.
You and your team made it very easy for us and the reason that we kept coming back is because of the service, speed of delivery and the fact that you answer the phone!! Believe me it makes the biggest difference to be able to call and get a quick response.
