The ideal format to supply your artwork to us is as a press-ready
PDF. This should be created as "Press quality" (sometimes
called PrePress) and must have all fonts embedded. The bleed details
in each templates should be followed carefully. If no bleed is supplied,
we will either enlarge slightly to create the bleed or reduce your
artwork to leave a 5mm white border.

- use the Press Quality option - save as PDF 1.3 and make the resolution
of any files that you use in your document 300dpi minimum.
We also have an artwork guide that will
save you time if you read it first.

It is not possible to print RGB without it being to converted to
CMYK first. We will do this conversion for you before proofing and
printing, so feel free to supply RBG artwork or RGB images. Some
colours change when converted to CMYK (greens, oranges and blues
This is unavoidable due to the smaller colour gamut of CMYK. More
