Artwork ready to print?

A few key points to remember before sending your print ready PDF:

  • Please try and ensure all images used are 300dpi resolution to avoid them looking blurry/fuzzy when printed.

  • When choosing fonts, please use standard options where possible as we may not have unusual/script fonts. If necessary we can replace missing fonts with some of our own. Alternatively, please convert text to outlines (but note, we are NOT able to make any minor changes to your text if you notice a mistake)

  • Correct size and bleed: Please allow a 3mm bleed around your artwork's final size. For example: An A4's size (210mm x 297mm) with a bleed is 216mm x 303mm.

  • CMYK colour mode, not RGB.

  • Keep text about 10mm from the edge to ensure no info is cropped during printing or finishing.

Please note that files from the Microsoft Office suite of programmes (Word, PowerPoint, Excel and Publisher) are normally not suited to commercial printing.
