Supplying Artwork

Best results are achieved by using press quality PDF files.

Most modern word processing programmes allow you to save your documents as PDF files. Please choose the option Commercial Press or High Quality Printing. Please embed fonts where possible. If you do need to supply files in Microsoft Word, Excel or Publisher please note that different computers can sometimes change the look of a page if the fonts and settings are not as the original settings on your computer. Please supply a print out that you are happy with so that we can ensure the printed job is as you require.

Images
Please supply images as CMYK files (tiffs preferred). Minimum 300dpi for colour and greyscale. For bitmap (lineart) minimum 600dpi. Please note that images taken from the internet at 72dpi and changed up to 300dpi will still be low resolution and will not always print well.

Bleed
If you want images or backgrounds to bleed off the edge of the page you need to supply the job with an extra 3mm bleed on all edges, ie if you are supplying A4 with bleed the job will need to be 216x303mm not 210x297mm, if supplying with bleed and crop marks 230 x 317mm.

EPS and JPEG
Files can be accepted as .eps files, please change fonts to paths or create outlines. JPEG files should be supplied at minimum 300dpi. Please note if you send RGB files they will need to be changed to CMYK which can sometimes alter the colours.
