Artwork - How to Supply Correctly

Our best prices are for all clients that supply us with final print ready PDF artwork. To get the best print from your artwork, we ask that you follow the below guidelines. We will advise where we find errors in artwork supplied, although we do not run checks covering every item, and we do not proof read or spell check your supplied artwork. Please check your artwork very thoroughly before submitting to us for print.

For all artwork supplied, we require that it is submitted to us in a standard, high quality, high resolution, pdf format using the following guidelines as a minimum:

i) We require an even 3mm bleed added to your artwork (that is your artwork should have an additional 3mm of image added to all edges where your design goes all the way to the edge)

ii) Supply your artwork as one Pantone colour only for 1 colour work, 2 Pantones only for 2 spot colour work, 3 Pantones only for 3 spot colour work, and as CMYK only for all full colour work

iii) All solid black areas must be black only - multiple colour blacks increase drying times and may lead to less sharp printing

iv) All images used in your artwork must be at a resolution of 300dpi or higher. If it is supplied at a lower resolution, you may see jagged edges (bit mapped images) in your printed job

v) Please embed all fonts in your final pdf artwork

vi) Artwork must be supplied at the correct size you want it printed at - we will not scale your artwork unless specifically asked to do so

Artwork not supplied to the above specifications may not print correctly, but you will still be liable for full payment of the print that we produce

If you require artwork to be amended from templates you hold and are able to supply to us, or originated or designed from scratch, we do offer this as an additional chargeable service which can be selected before confirmation of payment. Prices can be found on our Artwork Options & Costs page
