Providing Artwork

All prices quoted are based on files being supplied as print-ready PDF's.

We accept most PC and MAC formats, these can be converted to press-ready PDF’s at a charge of £25.00 (excluding VAT).

Please supply your artwork in a “one up” file, we’ll do the imposition for you. Images, background colours and fills which are intended to print to the trimmed edge of the paper should be extended 3mm beyond the page to give a “bleed” to the document. This will make the page 6mm taller and 6mm wider.

Preparing your files:

  • Add crop marks on all four corners
  • Please provide us with the fonts or convert the text into outlines
  • Images should be at least 300dpi resolution to guarantee the best printing quality. Save your images as CMYK images
  • Layers should be flattened before sending
