Uploading Files
Uploading Files

Our Simple & Convenient Process

Before uploading your files, it’s important to make sure that they are properly prepared. Once you have prepared your files, please follow our uploading instructions below.

 

  • How Do I Transfer Files Electronically?

    We have three ways of receiving your electronic files — via Email, FTP, and our Web Based File Transfer Server.

    You can also upload your files to your FTP site and provide us with authentication for us to download them. FTP or Web Based transfers must be used for files greater than 10Mb while Email will work for files whose total size is less than that.

  • Do I Need to Compress My Files?

    If you are sending a PDF file (*.pdf), you do not need to apply any compression or encoding. They can be sent as-is, so long as the file extension appears in the name. All other files should be compressed before they are sent to protect them from corruption during transfer.

    For PC, we recommend using WinZip to compress your files. Click here to download the utility.

    For Mac, use the builtin archive utility to ‘Zip’ your files or Stuffit to compress and binhex encode them. To use the OSX builtin utility, right-click or ctrl+click on the file or folder and select the ‘Compress’ option.

  • What is FTP?

    File Transfer Protocol is a method which is widely used to move files to and from servers on the Internet. Millions of people use FTP daily to upload Web pages, download software, digital music, and share files.

  • Do I Need FTP Client Software?

    YES!

    Unless you know how to do FTP from a command line terminal, FTP client software will be necessary. Files can not be transferred using Web browsers for security reasons. FTP client softwares are inexpensive and readily available on the web.

    We recommend Transmit for Mac. Download Transmit Software for Mac.

  • How Do I Connect?

    To connect to the Register Litho FTP site, enter the following information in your FTP Client Software:

    Server Name : 96.56.24.42
    User Name : register_litho
    Password : register

    Our ftp is a secure drop box style site. Your files can not be downloaded, viewed or deleted by anyone else but Register. Once your upload is complete, please email your Register contact letting them know that files have been uploaded and the file name(s). Be sure that all necessary files including high res links are included.

  • Submitting Files Via Email

    Small files can be sent via email. The total size of all files attached to any email can not exceed 10MB. Please be sure to include information as to the project that the files belong with. Be sure to follow the file guidelines under the ‘File Uploading Basics’ tab as those rules also apply to email attachments. Email: fred@registerlitho.com
