GUIDE TO ARTWORK & ORDERING

  • 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. Eps, PDF, ai or Tiff’s preferred.
  • 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.
