How to Set Up Your Artwork


Bleed & Crop


Please include a 3mm bleed within your artwork and use crop marks to show where the bleed ends and the document area begins.

 

Fonts


Print Ready PDF files will require the fonts to be embedded.  InDesign, Illustrator or Quark files should be packaged complete with the necessary fonts.

 

Images


Image must be at least 300dpi at the size you wish the item to be printed.  If you are using InDesign, Illustrator or Quark files these need to be supplied complete with all linked pictures.

 

Colours


Print files must be provided in spot colour or CMYK.  Please note that Illustrator .eps files are scalable and can contain spot colour information, whereas Photoshop .eps are normally CMYK based only.
