Artwork Instructions



We offer a comprehensive graphic design and illustrative service. Please contact for a price based on your project, or alternatively:

1). Make sure you choose the correct templates for your option from the list below or on the option’s page. When using the templates please be aware that the magenta line that is visible in most of the templates shows the trim line. Make sure you keep all of your logos and text at least 3mm inside this trim guide. This area, (the safety area) in most cases is denoted by a pale blue guide on the template. The bleed area will be marked by a pale pink guide. ‘Bleed’ is the distance that your artwork must extend past the trim mark. This ensures that once trimmed there can be no unsightly white edges showing.

2). Make sure all your design work is created in documents that are set to 300ppi (print resolution) and that any images that are ‘imported’ or ‘placed’ are also in 300ppi resolution if graphics or a large pixel x pixel size or file size if photographs. This is to guarantee a good quality print finish to your artwork. Any photographs that are used should be of a sufficiently large pixel x pixel size as to come out well in print. Remember, large images and photo's can be scaled down to fit artwork but small image cannot be scaled up.

3). When you have finished your artwork, if you are sufficiently experienced in preparing files for print then please send as print ready CMYK .pdf's complete with trim marks. If you are not so familiar with preparing artwork for print then please send as an ‘un-flattened’ .psd (Adobe Photoshop) Photoshop .pdf, ai (Adobe Illustrator) or .indd (Adobe InDesign) making sure you include any linked images and font files, and we can make ready at this end, and check that everything is ok.

4). Send artwork via the ‘Dropbox’ tool available on this website, via email (if it is small enough), via your own preferred file transfer method (ie: Wetransfer, Yousendit, Google Drive etc) or contact us to request a dedicated Dropbox folder be set up for your account.
