How to send us files

FTP (file Transfer Protocol)

Here is a convenient way to electronically send us your digital files to be printed. A username/password is needed to use this service. If you do not have a username/password, please contact us at 877.474.9031.

  • ftp://ftp.acclimaging.com

Please create a file with your company name on it and upload to that file.

For customers using Windows (PC)

* Windows 95/98/Me/NT/2000/XP version of WS_FTP

Please be aware that there is a fee involved, please honor the creators of the software and pay the fee if you decide to continue using it. See the accompanying text file for more information. When you are preparing files for upload please note that the server uses case-sensitive file names. We recommend using lowercase for all filenames. You should also stick to the character set including a-z, 0-9, dash, dot and underscore. Spaces in filenames are not allowed. You should compress your files before sending, with a program such as Winzip,or PKZIP.

Please feel free to contact a Customer Service Rep or Salesperson for further information on connecting VIA FTP.

For customers using Macintosh:
The Mac FTP client program recommended by us is Fetch. Under system 7.5, it features a drag and drop interface, and is easily configured.

You can download it by clicking here. Please be aware that there is a shareware fee involved, please honor the creators of the software and pay the fee if you decide to continue using it.

When you are preparing files for upload please note that the server uses case-sensitive file names. We recommend using lowercase for all filenames. You should also stick to the character set including a-z, 0-9, dash, dot and underscore. Spaces in filenames are not allowed.

Compress your files using a program such as Stuffit or Diskdoubler, and create a self-extracting archive (.sea) from the file. You should also encode the file using BinHex or in MacBinary.* (MacBinary actually results in a slightly smaller file size, and works just as well as BinHex).

*(If you use Fetch to mainly send DTP files, it can be configured to encode the .sea file as BinHex or MacBinary under Customize: Preferences: Upload).
