    Use Photoshop and save them in IMAGE/MODE/CMYK then the printer will be able to pull off the colour seps from that (Cyan, Magenta, Yellow and blacK). Look down the edge of a cornflake packet and see those colours in a registration area to see what they look like!

    Make sure the Photoshop image is flattened (ie no layers or embedded fonts) before it goes to the printers else they might muck things up.

    Hope that makes sense.
