Guide to Artwork & Ordering

Your design

All files should be supplied as you want them to look i.e. black on white and right reading.

All artwork will be reproduced at the size supplied, unless you tell us otherwise. We can reduce or enlarge artwork free of charge.

We accept artwork on film, paper or as a digital file (Word, Adobe Illustrator, etc.)

If supplying film please ensure it is negative, right reading, emulsion side up.

If supplying your design on paper, please use a laser printer NOT an inkjet printer as this is unsuitable; you should also ensure the design is in black and white and as crisp as possible.

Adobe Illustrator

If you are supplying your artwork in Adobe Illustrator, one of the most popular artwork packages, simply CLICK HERE for more help and information.


Word does not embed fonts, so if you are using an unusual font, please supply this to us. You must also supply a visual of your design, by fax, email (scan) or post, so that we can be sure we are recreating exactly what you expect.
