When placing your order, we require your complete print ready artwork to be uploaded as a PDF file.
However, should your existing artwork be saved in another format and you are not sure how or unable to convert it to a PDF file, you can upload the following formats: png, cdr, jpg, psd, doc. If we are unable to open the file or use the artwork provided, we will let you know and arrange a refund if necessary.
When designing/creating your artwork please keep the following in mind.
- To include at least 2mm bleed. Where we receive images that have no bleed we will trim about 1mm in from the edge which may impact on the look and size of the finished job.
- It is advisable to use CMYK images for a vibrant true to colour job. Avoid using RGB images as they print dull and look wishy washy.
- Try to avoid using borders at all, especially thin ones. Generally with digital printing the image can move slightly from sheet to sheet and one's eye can easily pick up the inconsistency of the gap between the border and the edge of the sheet. Also, for this reason, we advise placing text about 3mm in from the edge of the finished trimmed job.
- Thin and or small text may print poorly, especially if it is made up of 2 or more colour mixes.
- If you want to print a nice solid black colour don't support it with Cyan or Yellow or Magenta. Just leave it Black. Digital printing machines print Black beautifully on it's own.
- Large areas of solid colour may show banding or inconsistency. It's always best to try break up these areas with full colour images or text to get a quality job.
- Images used in your design should be saved as 300dpi.
- Please embed all the fonts, include crop marks & bleed then publish for print when saving your PDF.
- Please save your business card 1up per page and centered on the page.
