ARTWORK REQUIREMENTS

For the best quality print and the fastest turnaround time, please ensure all artwork meets our requirements. If in doubt get in touch:

  • FORMAT: High resolution PDF file with all fonts embedded.
  • SIZE: Please ensure that your artwork is the correct size as per the quote specification.
  • BLEED AND TRIM: All files need a 3mm bleed for cutting. We recommend you ensure any text or logos are at least 4mm from the edge, to avoid them being cut off.
  • IMPOSITION: Do not supply pre-imposed artwork or pages as spreads.
  • DIE-CUT/SPOT UV/EMBOSSING: When special printing effects such as spot UV, embossing or die-cutting are being used, a vector shape must be supplied in it’s own spot colour set to overprint. If in doubt please call us.
  • FOLDS: If your job is folded, please indicate where fold or scrore lines are.
  • IMAGES: When supplying images please ensure they are at least 300dpi. If the resolution is lower (72dpi for example) your images will appear blurry or pixelated when printed.
  • COLOUR: All files are to be supplied in CMYK colour format, unless using PMS colours.
    CMYK = Cyan, Magenta, Yellow, Black
    PMS = Pantone Matching System – a printing industry color matching system used to print spot colors.
    Please refer back to your quote for how your job colours are set up.
    If files are supplied in RGB we cannot guarantee colours will print the same. Avoid using 4 colour black which is 100% of cyan, maganta, yellow and black ink.
  • TINTS: Don’t use tints lighter than 7% - we cannot guarantee they will print correctly.
  • LARGE FORMAT: For posters and banners keep all text and logos at least 10mm from the edge and include 30mm bleed.

 

Before going to print we will send a final proof for your approval. Give us a call if you are not sure how to set up your file.

We offer a full design service in-house, so we can make adjustments for you or create designs from scratch.
