Artwork Guidelines

Listed here are some general guidelines for submitting your artwork to us. If you have any queries at all about submitting your artwork simply email us or telephone 01284 704030

For Mac: Quark 6.5, InDesign CS2, Illustrator CS2, Photoshop CS2, Acrobat 7.*

For PC: Word, Publisher 2003, PowerPoint, Coral Draw, Acrobat.

*All of the above programs can be older versions but not newer than stated. For any program not listed, please call for advise on how to save your files.

Imported Graphics: All photos should be saved as CMYK, at a maximum of 300dpi with no compression applied.

Fonts: All fonts should be Postscript. Make sure you include both the printer and the screen font for each face used. Only use TrueType fonts if there is no other option, as these are of lower quality than their postscript equivalent.

Colour Matching: All colours must be produced in CMYK.
All pantone colours will be converted to CMYK. Please
note that not all Pantone colours can be accurately
reproduced in CMYK. We would recommend that if a
job has been printed previously that you supply us
with a copy to match.

Accepted Media: We can accept files saved on CD,
DVD, USB stick, Zip disk, or data can be emailed to
us at
