SUBMITTING ARTWORK TO US

Artwork:

Where PDF's are our preferred file format, we can work with Indesign, Illustrator, Photoshop, Word, Powerpoint and many other file types.


Bleed:

This is the part of the printed image beyond the finished cut. As most jobs are printed on a larger sheet and cut to the finished size any design with an image at the edge must have a bleed. at least 2mm extra on each side is normally sufficient.  This ensures you get the best result possible for the finished product. 


PDF's:

The Portable Document Format (PDF) is a file format used to present documents in a manner independent of application software, hardware, and operating systems. Most printers and designers use this format 

A flattedned PDF is usually best. We can work with original files also, including the Adobe Suite and Microsoft Office Programs.


RA and SRA paper Sizes:

These are oversize paper paper sizes we use when printing. It is to account for bleed and giving space for print finishing applications. Your artwork should always use the A size guide but we can always work around it for specific jobs.


CMYK:

You might have heard of this acronym. It stands for Cyan Magenta Yellow and Key (black). These are the 4 standard process colours for printing. Artwork should be set to this setting for best results. RGB is ok but there can be a slight variation in colour.


Perforation:

This is a method of enabling printed sheets to be torn easily. Small holes are punched into the sheet at minute intervals ensuring that the paper keeps its strength while being able to be torn off easily. We can do multiple perforations one one sheet. When designing a job care must be taken and you must allow extra space for perforation


Registration marks:

These are small marks that define the printed image and are used for accurate cutting afterwards. Not essential but it helps with accuracy for print finishing
