Professional Artwork Guidelines
Tips for setting up & supplying your OWN artwork.

We have prepared the following guide to assist you with your electronic file preparation and submission. If you have a specific problem that is not covered in this guide, or have other questions, please feel free to contact us. Improperly prepared files can cause delays in manufacturing.

Artwork Checklist

Supply as CMYK

Embed fonts or convert fonts to outlines

Save as high-res 'Press Ready' PDF

Use our professional Adobe templates from HERE



3mm border must be added to pictures and designs bleeding to the edge, so that there is no white space or border showing around the artwork.

It is also important to keep text at least a 5mm away from the paper edge or the trim line to prevent accidental cropping.


Colour Specifications

Print previews are not a safe and sure measuring tool for color accuracy. Colours on the file might be effected by monitor calibration, screen resolution and lighting, just to name a few.

To achieve the desired colour on printing press, digital files must reflect accurate colour models and percentage. Please make sure all colours are in CMYK mode for colour accuracy, plus a better quality output.


Image Resolution

All images and pictures should be 350 dpi.

Rasterized text or logos should be 1200 dpi.


Digital Proofs

We provide PDF files as electronic soft proofs. These digital proofs intend to show you the layout and design elements of your job, but cannot be a guarantee of colour accuracy.
