Our printers are currently working through record volume for the current academic year. This has, in some cases, caused print times to be extended beyond our regular expectations.

I am making a premium paperback print book

 

I am including some illustrations (think Shel Silverstein) with simple black Sharpie. 

 

My book is going to be black and white on cream pages - when I upload the pictures is it okay that they are on a white background? Will the white background show on the cream pages? In other words, will my illustrations be printed on a white rectangle that is evident on the cream colored pages?

 

Do I need to make all the backgrounds transparent? If so, are png files compatible?

 

Thank you!

    PNG files work, and transparent background might not be a bad background.
