This eliminates room for error.

If you wish to supply an open file, please package it with the fonts and linked images.

IMAGE DPI

 

Images need to be set to

300 dpi (high resolution).

Saved as tiff, jpg or eps for best results.

SPELLING

 

Always check your spelling.

We can't be held responsible for typo's.

COLOUR PROOFING

 

Be sure to sign off a colour proof.

Colour is not always consistent with the Digital Printing process, so we highly recommend that you check a colour proof before running your full job.

We unfortunately can't be held responsible if a proof was not signed off.

Always export your files with bleed and crop marks.

This allows us to cut and finish your work accurately.
