Artwork Guidelines

Colour Format

Please supply files in CMYK and not RGB. If your artwork is a one colour special and it is an important colour, then please advise us of the Pantone colour reference or CMYK break down..

Text and Fonts

If the artwork includes text in a specific font, please provide the font in MAC format. Alternatively, please convert or rasterise the text into a vector format.


A minimum of 300dpi scaled at 100% is required for high quality images. Vectorised artwork/text will achieve better quality than flattened rasterised objects.

Artwork File Formats

Our preferred file format is HI RES PDF, but we can accept all of the following JPG/JPEG, EPS, AI, TIF/TIFF, IDD and AP.
