To help us speed up your order process, please consider these guidelines before sending artwork to us.
Your order may be delayed if artwork does not meet the guidelines
Artwork submission process
in high standards, 'nothing leaves the workshop unless we're 100% happy', so to achieve the best possible print output we will work closely with our customers to ensure their artwork meets the specifications required.
Files are checked and prepared for print by our studio team
A low resolution proof copy is sent to you for checking & approval
Check your proof carefully and approve or advise.
If not approved, new files/fonts/images should be supplied at this time
Approved artwork is sent to print
WE’LL LET YOU KNOW AT THE EARLIEST OPPORTUNITY IF SUBMITTED FILES ARE NOT SUITABLE
You’ll find a range of templates, carefully matched to our products to help you start working to the correct scale and dimensions
Artwork must extend 3mm beyond the edge of the templates. This is required on all products unless stated otherwise.
We love editable, uncompressed PDF's - its our preferred file type when submitting artwork
We can also take files compatible with Adobe Illustrator, InDesign and Photoshop (.ai, .eps, .indd and .psd).
All images should be embedded into the files, and should be supplied at 300dpi, 100% scale and in CMYK
All full colour artwork files should be set up as CMYK
Please remember to:
Convert all RGB images and colours to CMYK.
Convert all spot colours to process CMYK for digital printing.
Please note Pantone matching cannot be guaranteed for digital prints.
Convert TEXT to OUTLINES
To prevent font from disappearing, changing of just plain misbehaving, please make sure all text in your document is converted to outlines. This can be done by selecting the drop down menu ‘Type’ in Illustrator and InDesign, then clicking ‘Create Outlines’. If this is not possible, please supply the font files separately as either a .tff or .otf.
Please ensure any pixel-based images are at a resolution of 300dpi and at 100% scale, as this prevents the final print looking pixelated.
