Artwork Specification


Accepted Formats
We prefer Adobe PDF, as this will reduce any compatibility issues. We can also accept .AI, .INDD, TIFF, EPS, JPEG, Adobe Photoshop

Important Notes
Colour images must be in CMYK mode (please convert spot colours to CMYK equivalents). Any spot colours/pantones remaining in the artwork will be converted to CMYK during production and we cannot guarantee they will appear exactly the same as the spot colour/Pantone (although it is usually pretty close!).

Bitmap image resolution should be 300dpi at final size (higher resolution such as 400dpi is recommended where text is included in the bitmap).

Vector artwork should be retained in vector format where possible. However, please convert text to outlines/curves to avoid any font replacement issues.

Please include printer’s crop marks and set 5mm bleed when creating PDF files.

Please ensure all elements necessary to print are supplied (e.g. all linked images and fonts are supplied with Illustrator and InDesign files).

Where to Send Your Artwork
