color bitmaps (TIFF and EPS) are to be:
Imagesetting - CMYK, no RGB data
Large-format InkJet - RGB EPS (profile embedded preferred)
vector artwork is to be CMYK or Spot (Pantone preferred),
no RGB data.
Provide a printed sample of your file
This allows us to identify which graphics to expect and where,
text placement and flow, a specific page of a multi-page document,
etc. Without a hardcopy we don't know what to expect, therefore
you may not get what you thought.
