How do I ensure my artwork is print ready?
Make sure your artwork is to size and that you have added at least 3mm bleed if you want your design to go to the edge of your page. All images should be converted to CMYK and at least 300dpi, and text should be converted to outlines, paths or curves. A High Quality Print PDF is the best print file format. We will always check your artwork to ensure hat it is print ready and feed any recommendations back to you. If required, we can provide handy guides to reduce any re-work.
What are standard paper sizes?
The paper sizes below are the basis for most cut sheets and for most printing machines and hence the most cost-effective choices. We do however produce Flyers, booklets and in fact all our printing in customised sizes where that is required.
