PLEASE READ THIS BEFORE SENDING YOUR JOB OVER
Printing can be a complex process. We aim to make your life as easy as possible. Below are some useful guides that will help you when sending us artwork. Please feel free to call us or email if you have any questions or are confused about any aspect of artwork preparation.

We are currently running Adobe CS6. Please supply all artwork in original Adobe format. If you have CS7 or later, please back-save to a compatible format. If you are working with other software, please discuss it with us first.
We require original artwork for all print work. This allows us to go into your artwork and tweak it if needed. Please package InDesign files and always send fonts and links. For Offset printing, we can print from a high res pdf but cannot print from a pdf for Risograph printing.
We require proofs for all artwork as they act as a guide, showing us what we are required to produce for you. PDFs are usually sufficient for all print work. JPGs can be good for art prints. For complex book projects we may request hard copy dummies. We can't proceed with your job until we have a proof.
