HOW YOU CAN SUPPLY ARTWORK
Thanks very much for looking at our website! If you are supplying artwork please remember the following guidelines…
Artwork is preferred to scale and to size. If it is a large file, you can supply it at 1/4 size.
We prefer PDF files. If these have images in them, the images should be high resolution.
In other words, when the images are scaled up to the print size, they should be clear.
If your file is at print ready size, examine it at 100% in Adobe Reader.
We can also work with Adobe Illustrator, Photoshop, Word files and many more BUT to save times PDF is preferred with no crops, no colour bars etc.
For a standard roller banner, please send the file 850mm wide by 2150mm high.
Try to ensure all images in your design file are
high-res, the standard for which we recommend is
300dpi (dots per inch). The lower the dpi the worse
your image(s) will look when printed, so please
bear this in mind when scanning, manipulating or
sourcing images for your job.
We highly recommend images to be CMYK*, any
RGB* images will be converted to CMYK in our
workflow which may result in small colour shift.
Always try and use professional imagery or stock
photos. Images & logos saved from websites are
most likely to be between 72-96 dpi and are
therefore unsuitable for print. Anything supplied
above 450dpi will be down sampled to 300 dpi in
PLEASE NOTE LOW QUALITY IMAGES UNDER 100DPI WILL NOT ONLY
DOWNGRADE YOUR DESIGNS BUT ALSO AUTOMATICALLY GET REJECTED.
Within your artwork designs we recommend a minimum font size of 5pt (point size). Please set
text colour to 100% black if font size is between 5pt to 7pt. All fonts should be embedded when exporting your PDF this will allow all font information to be stored inside the pdf file and look as intended, no matter what computer the file is opened in.
Please ensure that all of the
fonts used in your design file
are included with your job, or
converted to curves / paths /
outlines prior to submission.
For a roll-up banner we use different safety margins per side.
Please use the following safety margins: Top 10 mm, Left 4 mm, Right 4mm and the bottom 150 mm. The bottom part will mostly be covered by the roll-up banner stand and will not be visible.
Our professional designers can either fix/adjust existing artwork, or can create a brand new design for you at a small additional cost. Simply create a briefing for our designers and let them surprise you with a stunning design for your business or event.
