PDF guidelines for artwork are available to download for each product.
If you’ve created your own artwork we prefer you to send an Acrobat PDF with the fonts outlined or embedded. We will check your files for compatibility when we receive your artwork and let you know if we encounter any obvious issues. If your artwork has been supplied in its’ original format (e.g. InDesign, Word etc), we will endeavor to convert to PDF format and provide you with a proof via email before we proceed. This helps to ensure that your artwork is printed correctly and hasn’t had any font clashes or text re-flow issues in the conversion process.
All artwork supplied should include 3mm bleed with crop marks. Some movement is unavoidable with all printing processes, and the bleed allows for any trimming variation. It is also advisable to place important elements of your design at least 3mm away from the edge of the paper, so that they don’t end up getting trimmed off.
If you have any questions regarding your artwork, please feel free to call us on 01536 269926 and one of our designers will be happy to advise you.
A correctly prepared PDF file is always preferable when supplying artwork, but please ensure that all fonts are embedded.
