We can accept all common professional graphic software formats (JPEG, TIFF, EPS, PDF etc). These do NOT include Microsoft Word, Publisher or Powerpoint files. If these are the only options you have please call for advice.
For PIXEL based software such as PHOTOSHOP your file should be saved at least 300dpi at the actual print size.
For VECTOR based software such as ILLUSTRATOR files should be saved in the EPS or PDF format with 3mm bleed. Please convert all type to outlines (aka paths or curves).
USING BLACK CORRECTLY - if using black as a fill colour in a CMYK design and you want to reproduce a strong dense black please make sure the black in your file is made up of 30% Cyan, 30% Magenta, 30% Yellow and 100% K (Black).
TEXT - Any text must be at least 3mm away from the edges of the trim size and if using black for small text please ensure it is made up of 100% K (black) only and set to Overprint. Please convert all text to outlines (aka paths, curves) where possible.
ARTWORK FOR BOOKLETS / BROCHURES - please supply as a PDF file with 3mm bleed and as single pages in reading order. SAFE AREA for brochures and booklets - place no essential text or information within 8mm of the cropped edge.
If you are unable to meet these requirements you may incur an artwork charge. This is charged at £30.00 p/hr. Please feel free to call or email for advice no matter how basic, we are here to help.
