To ensure your files are ready for print check the following guidelines.
The file is supplied as a four-colour process CMYK and not RGB colour space. If you are unfamiliar with this terminology don’t worry, we will convert it for you, though some colours may look washed out.
The document’s page size is the finished trim size.
Files are supplied with 3mm bleed.
Artwork is at least 5mm from the edge of the page; this is regarded as a safe or quiet area.
Any trim, score or fold marks are indicated and outside the live print area.
Fonts are embedded or converted to outlines so no fonts are needed.
Images are embedded in the file.
Black text is 100% black and not a mix of CMYK.
Any multiple-page PDF consists of single pages running from the front cover through to the back cover, including blank pages if needed.
If folded, check artwork is setup correctly for these folds.
