Artwork Guidelines

Speed up your order by ensuring your designs meet the artwork guidelines below. We’ll still check your artwork and send over proofs before going to print. If the guidelines below feel complicated or you don’t know where to start, contact us about our free artwork and design support.

Checking Your Artwork

Before going to print, our experienced graphic designers will carry out a series of manual checks, including:

  • File format
  • Sizing
  • Quality
  • Safe areas

We’ll then either:

1. confirm everything looks okay and send over proofs

2. correct any minor issues and send over proofs for sign-off

3. inform you of any major issues and what we need from you to resolve them

While our checks help minimise print issues, it’s up to you to supply the correct artwork in line with these guidelines. We can’t take responsibility for issues related to spelling mistakes, setup or artwork errors.

Artwork Guidelines

1. File Type

We recommend sending over a PDF of your artwork. TIF or AI files are accepted but must be flattened before sending.

If you’re sending images and logos, ensure they align with the guidelines below and send them in JPEG format.

Keep file names short and descriptive to help prevent any mistakes with your artwork.

 

2. Size & scale

Always supply full-size files unless your artwork is larger than 4500mm. Any artwork larger than this should be supplied at 10%.

When saving your artwork, include your final size and scale in the file name.

 

3. Bleed

There is a 10mm bleed at full size so keep this in mind when creating your artwork to ensure none of your design is cut off.

 

4. Colour Settings

All colours should be CMYK or Pantone. We can convert RGB to CMYK but this can cause unexpected results.

We will inform you if we need to convert from RGB to CMYK. You’ll then be able to resend artwork in CMYK or continue with the converted file.

 

5. Colour Matching

It’s important to be aware that not all printers show colours the same. There may be some slight variation from one supplier to the next.

It’s also worth noting that you may not see an exact colour match compared to what you see on screen. Your screen’s resolution can impact the colour you expect to be printed. E.g. a low-resolution screen is likely to show a duller colour when designing your artwork.

Creams, greys and golds are colours that can print differently from how they look on screen.

We cannot be held responsible for any colour issues due to errors in incorrectly supplied artwork.

 

6. Text & Fonts

Ensure text and fonts are outlined, even on PDF files. Alternatively, you can supply fonts as a packaged folder.

 

7. Images

Embed all images before saving. Linked images in a folder are not recommended and could delay the order process.

 

8. Resolution

Please save your artwork using the following DPI guidelines:

  • Large format (Over 2 metres) – 75 DPI/PPI
  • Medium format (1 – 2 metres) – 150 DPI/PPI
  • Small format (Under 1 metre) – 300 DPI/PPI

If you have scaled your file to 10%, ensure your DPI is x10 times higher to compensate.
