What are the best files types to supply for my artwork?
PDF (High resolution)
TIFF (CMYK, 300dpi if possible)
JPG (CMYK, 300dpi if possible)
For the best results supply your artwork at full size if possible. If this makes the file size too large you can reduce the size by 50% and we will enlarge it for print.
All images should be CMYK and a minimum of 100dpi when at full print size. If they are part of a pdf or ai file they should be embedded.
All fonts should be converted to paths.
My artwork is too large to upload or email
If this is the case you have these options:-
1: Upload to Dropbox or Google drive and email us the link to share the file.
2: Visit www.wetransfer.com where you can send files up to 2gb for FREE.
All artwork should be supplied in CMYK, if at all possible as each colour, Cyan, Magenta, Yellow and Black correspond to the inks used by our printers. When converting from RGB to CMYK the colours may alter, especially the brighter colours. This is because RGB (Red, Green, Blue) only really exist on screens so are more vivid than CMYK which exists in the real world.
Pantone or spot colours
Please convert all pantone colours and spot colours to their CMYK equivalent values.
When setting the colour black for any part of your design it’s always best to use this CMYK setting C=75 M=68 Y=67 K=90. This will make a true black. Setting your black toC=0 M=0 Y=0 K=100 will only produce a grey colour, see the image below.
Print bleeds and crop marks
We do not need artwork supplied with bleeds or crop marks just your artwork at the correct size or a percentage smaller for us to resize.
My artwork is unsuitable for print
If you can only supply low resolution images, Microsoft word files, images saved from your web site etc, we may still be able recreate your design from them.
