FILE FORMAT

As a starting point, we only receive high resolutons PDF Files from both PC and Mac software. We recommend exporting files at the “High Quality Pinting” setting. Before exporting your file as a PDF, convert all text to outlines and embed all images.

OTHER FORMATS

If you are not able to generate a “High Quality Printing” PDF, we accept the following software generated file formats:

Photoshop – .PSD file. Include all layers, paths, channels, links and fonts.

Illustrator – .AI file. Convert text to outlines, include all linked images (do not embed images).

TEMPLATES

Artwork templates for all graphic sizes are available in PDF format for you to download at:

RESOLUTION

The best results are achieved when the resolution of the mages are between 72-125 DPI at final print size (full size).

Images submitted that are larger than 125 DPI will create larger file sizes without any visible gain in print quality.

COLOUR

All colours must be defined in CMYK. If converted from RGB to CMYK significant colour changes can occur, please proof your colours prior to submission. Pantone Spot Colours may be requested, but exact colour matched are not always possible. Reference printouts will be considered for layout only, not as actual colour reference. If a colour layout can not be sent, include a .jpg, .pdf (screen optimised) or screen shot file. Clearly mark filename as “proof”. For black use (Process Black).

TURNAROUND TIME

Turn around time for most 1-5 prints is 3-5 days, plus shipping.
