PDF Files

We prefer all artwork to be supplied as high-resolution PDF format.

PDF’s are rapidly becoming the standard file format for transmitting files for printing, but it is important to prepare your PDF file in the correct way

Colour needs to be set as CMYK not RGB (RGB artwork will be converted to CMYK this could effect your colours).

Illustrator

Include all embedded images and convert all text to curves. Save as an eps file

Photoshop

File resolution should be a minimum 300dpi when starting your new document, Save files as either tiff or jpeg

Imposition

Do Not impose your jobs, send the files as single pages – Not Printers Pairs Please only send one version.

Bleed and Crop Marks

All artwork must have 3mm bleed if you require the image to bleed off the edge of the paper.

Crop marks should be included if artwork does not fill a whole page area (i.e. no bleed). They should be 5mm long, 3mm outside of the page area and coloured in the colour ‘registration’ to ensure they appear on each colour separation.

Please ensure that artwork is supplied at the correct finished size required. If this is not possible, please inform us to allow time for amending the artwork.

Please ensure that when setting the colour it is set to CMYK not RGB…
