DTP / Design
We offer basic graphic design for all marketing material at a reasonable hourly rate.

Digital Printing
It is important for you to always check your work before it is sent to print.
Here are a few points to look out for
- Check spelling, because we can't be held responsible for typo's
- Make sure your document is setup to the correct size (see paper sizes below)
- Print ready PDF files are preferred, remember to include 3 - 5 mm outer bleed
and 5 mm inner bleed (margin) and crop marks
- Colour mode needs to be CMYK, unless a better results are found using RGB.
- When supplying open files (which is not ideal, because it allows for error),
ensure all images accompany the file and the fonts are converted to outlines/curves
(remember to save it as a different file, so that you don't overwrite your open file)
- Images need to be set to 300 dpi (high resolution) and saved as tiff, jpg or eps for best results
