Supply your own Artwork

We realise the importance of having great quality print, which is why we’ve created a handful of resources to help get your artwork print-ready. We want to ensure that preparing for print is as smooth and stress-free as possible.

 

Once you have placed your order you can upload your print ready artwork. Supply as a CMYK PDF with all fonts outlined or embedded and with a resolution of 300dpi. Please allow 3mm bleed on all sides, with cut marks. We have free templates for every product we print. Contact us for artwork templates for your product if you are designing your own artwork, to ensure correct size, safe area and bleed is used. These templates ensure your design is the correct size and proportion. Simply remove them from your artwork before sending to us for printing. If you have ordered our design service please email your brief or call us. Your brief will be given to a member of our design team, who will contact you either by phone or email.

 

We offer three different Artwork Services:

  • Just Print is our free option where your print ready PDF will be printed as supplied. We recommend this service only to individuals who fully understand our print ready requirements, who are completely confident that their PDF files have been supplied correctly.

  • File Check is a safety net option, where the print ready files are double checked by our Pre Press team before being sent for printing. Prices start at £5.00 + VAT. You can also order a PDF Proof for an additional £8 + VAT.

  • File Assist turns any finished design into a print ready PDF and includes a PDF Proof. Prices start at £25 + VAT
