Are crop marks needed?
They sure are, otherwise we don’t have a guide to trim down your prints.
How do I create outlines?
Outlines only apply to text. This process is only required for lithographic printing but it is best practice to do it for digital prints too. To outline your text simply select all right click and click outline, hey presto it’s done.
What type of images do I need?
Best to have large sized images for professional printing. It would not be recommended to use images from the web, the most frequent found online are gif., png., or jpeg. Most online images are only about 72dpi, this is nowhere near what is required to having your prints looking professional. Personally we would advise purchasing images from an online image bank. like www.shutterstock.com, that’s if you don’t have images yourself.
Bleeds – what is it?
Bleed is the overprint on a page which is cut off when we trim your final print. For instance an A5 page is 148.5mm x 210mm, when saving artwork we recommend you add 3mm all round for the bleed which is cut off and stops any whit appearing along the edge of the print.
What is CMYK?
CMYK is a four colour process Cyan, Magenta, Yellow and Black which is used for lithographic and digital printing. It is important to note that screens can show either CMYK or RGB, ensure yours is set to CMYK otherwise it will look different on screen than what will be printed.
What is the quickest way to get my job done?
If you are sending on your artwork to us just ensure that it is saved as a pdf with crop marks, bleeds and images embedded. 90% of prints when approved for print will take 5 working days. However if you require your print fast just contact our sales team at email@example.com.

High resolution PDF, what are they?
Every see a print or design where the logo, images and text is blurry or pixelate, that is because it is saved as a low quality. That is why we only take files that are saved at 300dpi in a pdf format that is cropped and has a 3mm bleed all around, all text has to be outlined.
