Supplying your artwork

Following is a guideline for supplying artwork to us to ensure the best results.prepress

  • Vector Based artwork. having your artwork produced using vector based software like Adobe Illustrator or Coreldraw means your art can be printed at any size without any visible loss in quality.
  • Atrwork at the desired size. Supplying your artwork at the finished size will help us to make sure you get exactly what your expecting.
  • Fonts. Although we have a library of thousands of fonts we certainly dont have them all. if you have used something unusual in your design make sure you either supply the font file or convert the font into vector curves before supplying the artwork.
  • High resolution images. If your artwork contains images they need to be big enough that when they are printed at full size they do not become pixelated or jagged. Our software can do a pretty good job of resizing images but the bigger the original the better the results. This can often mean that your artwork files can become quite large. To help with this we can offer an online file uploading service if required. As a general rule images taken from WEB pages are too small to be printed sucessfully.
  • Know your colours. Producing the correct colours can be challenging. The colours your looking at on your computer screen may not necessarly match the printed colour. One method to combat this is to use the standard Pantone colour set or come in and choose colours from our printed colour charts.
  • Read the proof. As a rule we provide colour proofs via email before commencing the job, this is a chance for you to check for layout, colours, quantity and spelling mistakes before we commit to printing.

Our preferred file type is either PDF or EPS as they can contain both image and vector data. Other supported file types include:

Adobe PDF (.PDF)
Adobe Illustrator (.AI)
Adobe Photoshop (.PSD)
Adobe InDesign (.IDD)
CorelDraw (.CDR)
