Your Good Name In Our Safe Hands

Artwork Guidelines for Large Format Digital Printing

Artwork needs to be produced in an industry-standard layout package, ie QuarkXpress, Adobe Photoshop, Adobe Illustrator and Adobe Indesign.  When creating your artwork please work to any convenient scale such as 1:2, 1:4, 1:8. We will scale this up to final size when printing.  Please allow 3mm bleed at finished size over the page edge on all documents.  Illustrator layouts must have the document colour mode set as CMYK.  Important note; most Microsoft software is not suitable for digital printing, this includes Word, Excel, PowerPoint and Publisher.

Any scanned images or Photoshop files used within designs should be supplied at a resolution that will achieve optimum output, i.e. 100-200dpi at final output size.  Images must be in CMYK colourspace with any extra alpha channels removed.

Please supply both screen and printer fonts used in all documents. If working on a PC then all text must be converted to outlines.

We are also able to runout from print-ready PDFs. Again, these will need to include 3mm bleed, tick marks and fonts. The colour options must be set to ‘Composite CMYK’ and maximum quality JPEG compression can be used.

Please supply visuals.
Up-to-date colour visuals must be supplied with all jobs, either as a hard proof or a low-resolution PDF.

Colour matching
Please tell us if we are required to match any specific Pantone colours or colour proofs etc.

All output is produced at 720-2880 dpi on CMYK inkjet printers with a maximum printable width of 1600mm dependent on media used.

We can accept artwork via email, FTP or CD/DVD.
