Artwork Guidelines

Please observe the following guidelines when submitting your own artwork.

  • Ensure all images are 300dpi or over
  • Add a 3mm bleed to all standard ‘A’ sizes (see ‘What is bleed’ below for more instructions)
  • Ensure all fonts are embedded or converted to outlines
  • Supply artwork as CMYK only

What is Bleed?

Bleed allows us to print your background colours and images right to the edge of your design. Therefore please add an extra 3mm around all the edges of your design. For instance, an A5 leaflet is 148mm x 210mm – however to allow for bleed you need to add 3mm to all edges making your final artwork size 154mm x 216mm.
