We have the following design requirements:

  • Open files may be supplied if they are in Quark (please save in version 5 or 6), Open files may be supplied if they are in Quark (upto version 8).
  • Images must be supplied in EPS, Tiff or PDF format in CMYK (if full colour) and at 300dpi minimum.
  • Fonts must also be included; both desktop and printer versions or true type fonts.
  • Illustrator files may also be supplied (version CS3 or lower), as can Freehand files (saved to version 10 or Freehand EPSs).
  • In-Design, CS3 and PDFs may be supplied.
  • If artwork is full colour it should be supplied in CMYK format unless it requires specials (pantones).
  • Artwork must be supplied with 3mm bleed all round if possible.

Files may also be supplied in Word format. However, changing platforms from PC to Mac can occasionally cause problems. Ideally we would recommend that you use Word for copy and try adhering to the above guidelines for design.

If alterations are required to artwork, an additional fee may be charged. However, no work will be carried out without your authorisation.
