Making sure your artwork is print-ready
When submitting files for print, please try to make sure that:
- All images and fonts are included with the main file
- Images are in CMYK colour mode and not RGB
- Images are high quality (300dpi) versions
If you need any assistance setting up your files we would be happy to help. Please get in touch.
Our officially supported file formats are listed below. If you don’t see your application here, don’t panic – we can normally find a workaround to print from most applications. Please feel free to contact us if in doubt.
- Microsoft Office files (Word, Excel and Powerpoint)
- Adobe PDF
- Adobe InDesign, Photoshop and Illustrator
- Most image files, including TIFF, EPS, BMP, JPEG and RAW images
Microsoft Word documents
Microsoft Word documents should be set up using British “A” sizes, and not the “US Letter” American default size. To change your document to use A4, choose “page setup” from the “file” menu and select A4. You might find that some of your text and images reflow after doing this, so do check through your document before you give it to us to print.
Submitting files via email
If your files are less than 20MB in size, we can accept them by email. Please send them to: firstname.lastname@example.org If your files are larger than this, we recommend sending them using the WeTransfer website.
