Supplying your own artwork?
Great! Here’s how we need it...
We request all artwork to be supplied as high resolution (300dpi). There are options which must be set for printing:
Resolution (Choose High Resolution)
Font Embedding (should be set to "embed all fonts")
Crop and Bleed Marks with 3mm Bleed selected
Colour needs to be set as CMYK not RGB (RGB artwork will be converted to
CMYK this could effect your colours when printed).
Covert your file to a PDF
Below is a link to a website that can convert any of the above files into a pdf, it is straight forward and will do it for you right there online. ITS FREE! http://convert.neevia.com
Please ensure that you do not supply your files imposed or as "printers pairs". Please only send one version.
It is essential that there is a 3mm bleed around your artwork if any images or text ‘bleeds’ off the edges of the page. This is for cutting purposes.
We prefer not to use the following formats for printing as they can cause problems with colour and layout from different computer systems. So, if at all possible, convert them to PDF and send them to us. If you are unsure, please call us and we will be happy to help.
Word / Excel / Publisher / Powerpoint / Works
Please note that it is important when supplying a PDF from a Microsoft document, care is taken to ensure any spot colours are created correctly in your original document.
Please ensure all fonts and pictures used in your artwork are supplied to us in a separate folder using the "package" function under the "file" menu. Please supply a screen shot of the artwork or a PDF. This is for our reference to make sure that nothing is missing or moved on the artwork when supplying.
Include all embedded images and convert all text to curves and save as an ai. file or an eps. file.
Ensure the resolution is set to 300dpi when starting your new document and the colour space is set to CMYK.
Following these guidelines ensures that there will be no delays with printing.
