Our preferred format to print your documents from is a PDF file. This is the best format for you to provide your artwork as it will not change depending on user settings, like Microsoft Word and PowerPoint. Please make sure that your images are at least 300dpi and all colours are correct.
We accept artwork created in any of the following software packages:
- Adobe InDesign
- Adobe Illustrator
- Adobe Photoshop
While we do accept files made in Microsoft Office (Word, PowerPoint, Excel etc.) these are not designed for commercial printing and may look different on our screens than it does to you. This is because of user settings and fonts that we might not have installed. Please export any Office files to PDF before sending to us.
InDesign, Illustrator and Photoshop, allow you to package your artwork, which collects all the elements used in your files (images, fonts, etc.) and puts them all into one convenient folder. This can be done by going to File > Package in your Adobe apps. Simply send us the folder and we should have everything we need.
All placed images and used fonts should be included with your artwork when you send it across just in case there is an issue with something that we need to fix or check. It is a good working practice to include at least a low-resolution PDF along with any original artwork to check against.
