Ready to Submit Work?

Make sure that your submission meets the comic submission specs below. Once you’ve checked that off, go ahead and click “Submit Work Now” on the “Our Anthology” drop down menu, or click here.

You’ll be taken to our dropbox folder where you’ll need to click “choose files” select your work, and fill out your name and email address.

Comic Submission Specs

1. File Format

Save your files as PDF or TIFF.

Be sure the files are flattened (no extra layers or channels).

Be sure they are saved using LZW compression. LZW compression is lossless, meaning that there is no loss of image quality, so we can make sure we’re publishing the best image possible of your work.

Please NEVER save files intended for print as JPGs or with jpg compression. JPG compression is destructive by design. It prioritizes smaller file size over image quality integrity. If you’ve already saved your files using JPG compression, then some damage has already been done. If it’s possible for you to start over from a master copy we recommend that.

Color files should be saved in CMYK mode.
Black and white files should be in Grayscale mode.

2. Resolution

Your files MUST be 300 DPI (dots per inch).

If the resolution of your files is less than 300 DPI, the print quality of your work will suffer.

3. Dimensions

Your document size should be 5.5×7.5″
Trim area: 5×7.5″
Live area: 4.5×7″

Simply put, your lines, letters, and art shouldn’t be larger than 4.5×7″

Here’s a template to reference!

4. Name your files clearly!

We want your files sent separately and named with each comic and page number. For instance, if I had a comic called Super Cat, my submission would look like this:

SuperCat_1.pdf
SuperCat_2.pdf
SuperCat_3.pdf
