To ensure your artwork is print ready please ensure that it meets the following requirements:
FILE FORMAT - Our preferred format for accepting artwork is as a high resolution PDF.
RESOLUTION - Files, including any images, need to be at least 300 dpi to print clearly, otherwise images may appear bit mapped, fuzzy, distorted or pixilated. Most images found on the internet are 72 dpi and are generally not suitable for professional printing.
COLOURS - Files must be set up as CMYK for colours to print accurately. Files that are sent to us using RGB, Pantone, or spot colours will be automatically converted to CMYK which may cause some changes to your colours.
If you require us to match your colours, you must send in an example of the colour to match to (even if we have printed it before). However, most, but not all colours are achievable using CMYK, so if we cannot match your colour we will inform you before printing.
FONTS - If we don’t have the font you have used, it may be automatically substituted for an alternative font. To avoid this happening, please embed or outline all the fonts used in your document before sending us the final artwork.
CROP MARKS - The PDF file always needs crop marks included so we know where to trim your artwork once printed.
BLEED - Please include a MINIMUM 3mm BLEED on each side of your artwork.
A bleed is an area of your image that is outside the final cut of your printed piece. It is used to extend an image, colour or line beyond the artwork edge, which enables us to guillotine the finished product without leaving a white line. For example, if you want your business card background to be entirely blue, you must bleed the blue colour past the edge of the final size of your business card. This prevents a white line down one or more edges of your print, caused by very slight variations in guillotining and trimming which can be ±1mm.
TEXT - We advise that any text should be at least 5mm away from the edge of the finished size.
SIZE – All artwork needs to be set to actual size of the leaflet.
