Artwork Criteria


If you require one of our printed products but are unable to produce the artwork, please contact us with your requirements.  Please include as much information as possible, in addition to details regarding the logos and/or images you will provide.  Upon receipt we will provide an estimate to produce the artwork.

If you are producing your own artwork, please follow the guidelines below.  You have the option to upload your artwork at checkout.

Overall Size

As per the print spec of the individual product.

Crop marks, bleed & borders 

Please allow a minimum of 20mm bleed area from all of the edges of your artwork.  Please place tick marks at all cut size corners

Vector files pdf, ai, eps.

Vector files should be sent whenever possible. It is important that all fonts are converted to paths/outlines, this will ensure that your text is displayed correctly. If files are not converted to outlines errors can occur during the import process. Vector images are fully scalable and can be sent at a smaller size (correct proportions please). Important – When sending eps or ai files, always provide a low res. jpg as a visual, just so we can check for any compatibility issues.

Bitmap, Jpg images & photos

When sending Bitmaps & jpg images the file resolution should be 300dpi this will allow us to scale them and maintain a high resolution print.


Colour mode should always be CMYK with Pantone Matching System (P.M.S.) references if possible.  All colour specifications will be matched to the closest 4 colour process. Orders received without colour specifications will be produced using the CMYK values contained in the digital file. CMYK can’t print fluorescent or metallic colours. Please note CMYK colours will vary from one printer to another, the only way to get accurate colour match is either a physical sample sent to us by post or a PMS colour code.

By uploading artwork you are confirming you are the intellectual owner or you have permission or the file is permitted to be reproduced in the form of your request.
