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 Publisher files.

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

Business Cards
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.
