HIGH RES PDF

Please save files at max resolution (300dpi at full size) or 25% of size at a minimum.

Please outline all fonts
as we print from Illustrator, embedded fonts do not hold when converted.

PMS colours
to be supplied, as we cannot take responsibility for CMYK or non-PMS colours hence colours will be printed as supplied.


If one of these two file types cannot be supplied, please note the following:


PHOTOSHOP

Please save files PSD or EPS at 25% of finished size no less than 300 DPI. Supply all fonts and graphics if changes are to be made. Save with layers active (Not flattened).


INDESIGN

We do not print from InDesign files. We print from Illustrator to ensure the best results for large format print. This allows accurate colour matching and stops artwork components from dropping out.

If artwork is created using InDesign, you must export them as EPS prior to creating a PDF or sending the file to us. –
Don’t forget to outline your fonts!!

PMS colours are to be supplied as we cannot take responsibility for CMYK or non PMS colours. These colours will be printed as supplied.
