I'm a client and I have a problem with a printer or my ABC Imaging software. How can I contact ABC Imaging?
You should be a registered user at a client site to open a ticket. If you are not registered, click the register button and complete the online form. Then sign in and open a ticket.
Do you have a FTP where I can send my files for printing?
Yes, BlueprintOnline, our online planroom uses FTP for uploading files. However, our primary service for receiving files for printing, Send Job, uses HTTP protocol. HTTP is a more secure method of transferring files. Please see our answer to "How do I use Send Job" for instructions on using Send Job.
How can I send you a file for printing?
We have several services or products that you can use to send us a file for printing. If the file does not exceed 10 MB, you can email it directly to us.
If you are sending a large file or multiple files, please use the following guidelines:
If you are a client registered to use Send Job, click SEND JOB.
This opens the fulfillment sequence you use to upload and order the files you need to print.
If you are not registered to use Send Job, see our answer to "How do I use Send Job" for instructions on registering to use the service.
If you are a BlueprintOnline client, use it to upload files to a project, if this is appropriate for the job.
Then use the print ordering function in the application to order the prints you need.
How do I use Send Job?
On abcimaging.com, click SEND JOB. The Send Job sign-in page opens.
If you are not registered, you will need to register to use the service. Click the register button and complete the online form. Then sign in and begin to use Send Job.
Send Job uses a five step process to send files. Simply follow the sequence and fill in the information for your print job. Be sure to click "Upload files from your computer" button when you attach your files to the order during the "Order Details" step.
Once you have submitted your job, you should receive an email confirmation. The location you selected in the "Order set will be processed by this location:" dropdown menu will receive notification of your job. If your job has special requirements, an ABC Imaging representative will contact you about the requirements.
What is the largest size file I can send?
You may send orders as large as 1 GB using SendJob. The actual size you can send, however, depends on the time-out programmed for the server sending the files. We recommend that you contact our customer service department before you send a file or files more than 500 MB in size using Send Job.
