Supplying Artwork

All our artwork is done on the Apple Mac platform and we can accept files created in a number of Mac applications. Currently the most reliable format for print production is Adobe’s PDF so wherever possible we like to receive files this way.

However not all PDFs are equal so before you convert your final artwork please check our Guide to PDF or call us and we can talk you through it. If you use Acrobat Distiller we can supply a Distiller Settings File to convert your .ps file to the correct PDF version - please email or call.

If you are not experienced in creating artwork for print you must familiarise yourself with basic print terminology. It is critical to all artwork for print and we refer to it in all our templates and guides.

These guides to print terminology will help you to avoid any pitfalls and are guaranteed to save you money.
You can download templates for the most common print items. Just click on the appropriate format below or right click (command click for Mac) and save the file to your hard drive.
To ensure a trouble free job please follow our guidelines as closely as possible. It is important that you understand them so if you need any help at all please contact us. We would much rather spend time with help and advice at the outset than have to amend or return files that we can't use and of course then have to charge for!
