Use PDF version 1.4 ensuring all files are flattened.
Two sided artwork to be supplied in a 2 page PDF – 1 file containing 2 pages. Page 1 will be considered the front and page 2 the reverse. Page 1 will be considered the outside and page 2 the inside on a folded leaflet.
Booklets need to be supplied as ‘1 up’ pages, not spreads or ‘printer’s pairs’. Pages must be in sequential order starting with the front cover as page 1 and the back of the cover as the last page. e.g. 12pp booklet = 1 PDF containing 12 pages – not 12 separate PDFs.
Artwork to be supplied ‘1 Up’ at the correct size (with bleed and trim marks if needed) E.g. Don’t supply a PDF with a business card set in the middle of an A4 size document unless you actually want it to be printed as an A4 size document.
Colour is CMYK not RGB Spot colour is only used for invoice books/pads, envelopes and spot silver business cards.
Bleed 2mm for business cards and magnets 3mm for Spot Silver or UV business cards 3mm for leaflets and other stationery 5mm for booklets, presentation folders and banners
Internal Bleed 4mm is the safest distance from the trim edge 10mm for booklets and banners To minimise booklet creep you may need to use progressive margins
Trim Marks Offset trim marks by 3mm None needed for business cards, presentation folders or magnets
Make sure artwork is centred within the document

Set Black Text at 100% K only. Set Black as a background colour at 60% C, 50% M, 50% Y, 100% K to give good solid coverage. Total combined ink density of your artwork should be 300 – 340% max.
Images must be CMYK – not RGB or LAB Convert to cmyk before embedding into your document. Minimum resolution is 300dpi at 100%
Before sending your file open and check all your pages for any errors that may have occurred when converting the original document to PDF.
Other file formats we accept are:
Illustrator (.ai) Convert all text to ‘outlines’ and embed all images. All colours need to be CMYK – don’t mix with spot colours. Save as an .eps file.
InDesign (.indd) Please use the ‘Package’ option in the ‘File’ menu. Check it has included all the images and fonts then Zip (using ‘compress’ in file menu) before sending.
Photoshop (.psd) All colours and images need to be CMYK not RGB and set at 300dpi
Word – Publisher – Powerpoint – Excel These files are not normally good for full colour printing and are unpredictable. They are normally in an RGB colour format which is great for viewing on screen but not good for printing. We can often convert them to the correct cmyk format but your colours will change, looking dirty or dark. Fonts can be slightly different from one PC to another and can throw out the formatting or may substitute to a default font with undesirable results. However, we can usually use these files without problems for general photocopying or digital colour printing – if you can, please PDF them, making sure you embed the fonts. Printed colours are often different to what you see on screen – for example a very bright lime green may turn into a dark forest green. We will check your file to see if it is usable and contact you if you need to have it re-designed. Allow extra time if supplying in these formats.
