Want to send us your own artwork for us to print?
That’s no problem – but even if you regularly supply files for print, please take a moment to read our artwork guidelines to ensure your finished job prints the way you intend it to.
Here’s all you need to know about creating artwork…
Your artwork should be set up at actual size (not scaled) based upon the chosen size of your newsletters. Please use the CMYK document colour format. We request that artwork be supplied as a high resolution PDF file. This is the standard file format for transmitting artwork for printing and it is important to prepare your file correctly before sending to us.
When you save, use the ‘High Quality Print‘ preset ensuring ‘Optimize for Fast Web View‘ is deselected. Please make sure there is a 5mm bleed around your artwork. Trim and crop marks should be included.
Images & Fonts
Please ensure that all images used within your artwork are created / saved at a resolution of 300dpi. They should be in CMYK format and must be embedded within your artwork.
Use of RGB images is likely to bring unexpected results when printed. Images and/or logos taken from the internet are unlikely to be suitable for print.
You can of course use any fonts that you wish – but please ensure that you convert all fonts to outlines to ensure they print correctly.
When supplying your own artwork, you will still be sent a PDF proof before the job is finally sent to print.
Please note that we do not send your job to print until we receive your final, written approval.
We request that you check it very carefully and ask that you are aware that due to monitor and print variances, it is likely that there will be some difference between how the colours appear on your screen and the final printed version.
Sending Your Artwork
We accept files via email up to around 20MB. Should your file be larger than this – please contact us and we’ll help you get it to us. When ready, please send your file(s) to:
Please ensure that your file(s) are clearly labelled and include your order number so that we can match the artwork you send to your order.
Should you wish to submit artwork not created in Adobe Creative Suite® we may be able to facilitate your request, but please contact us first.
Please note all supplied artwork will be carefully checked for compatibility and for optimum print output and we often spot anomalies. However, it is your responsibility to ensure that your artwork has been created correctly and adheres to the guidelines contained herein.
As a result, we cannot be held responsible for any errors, mistakes or discrepancies found within any finished job created using artwork that has been supplied to us.
