Upload your Artwork
Upload your print-ready artwork online
Before we go to print we will check your artwork over to ensure it is suitable to print. It is however important if you are supplying your own print-ready artwork that you make a note of the following artwork requirements as all printers are different, and our requirements may vary from others you've used in the past...
Format - We ask that artwork is sent to us in one of the following file formats; PDF, TIFF or JPG format. Documents which contain more than one side need to be sent as separate files.
Bleed - Artwork must have at least 2mm bleed on all sides - so your artwork should be the finished size + 4mm (ie business cards should be 89x59mm which will then be trimmed to 85x55mm after printing).
Resolution - We require artwork to be sent at 300dpi
Colour - Artwork should be CMYK
In addition to the essential bleed, we suggest that you leave a further 'quiet zone' of around 3mm from the edge of your page (this helps avoid things looking like they're about to fall off the edge of the page). We also suggest that the ink makeup for black is no more than 140% and for colours not more than 230%.
Printing from Microsoft Documents
We cannot use Word, Exel, Publisher, Powerpoint or Works file formats for printing. You can however convert these file types really easily online by visiting http://convert.neevia.com The best bit is that it's FREE!
