Supplying your own Print Ready Artwork
After you have completed your order you will be sent an e-mail
with a Username and Password to Login
to our customers area where you can upload your files.
Artwork files cannot be bigger than 6 MB per file. Alternatively
you can send your files by post on a CD.
Preferable file formats: PhotoShop, Illustrator, PageMaker or
high quality 300dpi JPG, EPS, TIFF or PDF files. We do not accept
All used in the layout should be scanned in at 300dpi and saved
as CMYK. Normally files scanned in are set as RGB they can be
converted to CMYK using Adobe PhotoShop or a similar program.
If supplying artwork in PhotoShop, Illustrator, or PageMaker format,
the all fonts must be supplied OR converted to curves/paths.
All files supplied require a bleed. A 3mm minimum is required
beyond the trim size of your artwork. For example if ordering
a 90x55mm business card, the artwork setup should be 96x61mm,
the extra 3mm on each side gets trimmed off in the printing process.
Also, any text should be kept 3mm inside the trim size, so for a
business card in a safe area of 84x49mm, this will ensure that your
cards are produced to the highest standard.
Artwork Setup Example
If you are supplying your artwork finished and ready for printing,
it must have at least 3mm bleed around the edge (greater than
the the trim size) and any text must be 2mm from the trim to be
in the "Safe Area".
Your content must be within the WHITE area opposite. This allows
for trimming tolerance in the printing process and ensures your
cards and other print media are produced to the highest quality.
