Print Support

We accept files from most major operating systems, however all artwork needs to adhere to the following guidelines.

The following applications are supported:

  • MS Office
  • Adobe Acrobat
  • Adobe Illustrator
  • Adobe InDesign
  • Adobe Photoshop
  • Quark XPress

Please make sure that your artwork contains a 3mm inside and outside bleed. Where possible convert your text to paths, curves or outlines.

If mailing your material please include a colour or black and white proof copy of your file and also include all fonts, scans and linked items on your disk.

For large multipage jobs please be aware of the implications of creep. Please check for the required bleed on artwork in such cases.

Please do not set any elements of your job (text or graphics) to overprint. Our pre-press workflow will take care of all trapping issues relevant to your job. A Large File Upload (FTP) Facility is available on home page of our website.

Screen colours are never accurate. Please check your Pantone or CMYK specifications. Always indicate the exact file and output size and the stock required. Please check your document sizes conform to the output specifications.

If your CMYK artwork contains large areas of the colour black we strongly recommend the addition of at least 40% (C) Cyan in addition to the 100% (K) Black to produce a richer, better looking black.

If delivery is urgent please check your deadline is achievable. Please label any mailed artwork material with a return address.
