File Naming Conventions

A file naming convention (FNC) can help you stay organized by making it easy to identify the file(s) that contain the information that you are looking for! A good FNC can also help others better understand and navigate through your work. 

In order to avoid recieving a million files all titled "Untitled_1.tiff" or "bannerprintprojectprintmeplzxoxoxluvu-forrealthistime1_toprint.pdf", we strongly suggest you use the following FNC for all Service Bureau print job submissions: 

username_projectname_printsize_date.fileextension

for example: 

BKnowles_ticketmaster_11x17_742021.pdf

or 

JDoe123_bannerprint_24x36_4201969.tif

Feel free to include any additional information that you feel would be helpful to you or us, for instance:

THanks_RISOgigposter_BWtoprint_8.5x11_352020.psd 

THanks_RISOgigposter_colormockup_8.5x11_352020.pdf

But please try to keep things concise and to the point!
