What types of files are accepted?

Posted on 01-15-2013 by Admin

The best file format to submit your artwork in is Adobe Acrobat - pdf

Please ensure you have followed these steps prior to sending the artwork :

1). Convert all text to outlines / paths (the exact terminology depends on your software). Please include the fonts when you submit the artwork if you haven't managed to convert the text.

2). Ensure all images and relevant artwork are at 300dpi before designing the layout (we may ask you to submit higher resolution versions in some instances)

3). Include bleed on all layouts, it may slow down the setup of your order if we have to request new artwork from you. As a general rule, A6 and below require 1.5mm bleed on each edge, A5 and above requires 3mm on each edge.

4). Ensure that all artwork is clearly labelled (eg; JoeBloggs_Front.pdf, JoeBloggs_Back.pdf)We also accept the following files (ensure you follow steps 1-4 above when submitting any artwork) :
