2. How can I submit my own artwork?

Submission Methods:

- Email for files under 10 MB

- CD/CD-R/CD-RW, DVD-R/DVD-RW, USB flash drive
Helpful Suggestions: 

  1. All files to be submitted in original working files required hi-resolution of 300 dpi at the actual printing size, ie.100%.

  2. Include a pdf for reference

  3. Convert all fonts to paths/outlines (if in a vector art program) or rasterize (if in a raster art program) to avoid font substitutions.

  4. Include all placed images in addition to actual design files (Links files). Most images downloaded from website are only 72dpi or lower thus not suitable for print.

  5. Convert all RGB & Spot colours to CMYK.

  6. A complete pathed/embedded high resolution pdf files is acceptable for direct print too.
  7. If your company has a corporate brand standards colours or logo usage guidelines please submit them along with your artwork so that we can follow.

3. What does bleed mean? 


This means when the printed image runs off the page. To achieve a bleed, the job will have to be printed on an oversize paper and trimmed to the finished size.

4. What are crop marks? 

Crop marks help the printer achieve registration and also ensure accuracy when trimming the job.

5. Why colours view on my monitor is different from the print? 

Commerical printing is processed through CMYK print wherelse computer monitors use RGB to display colours. As all monitors are calibrated differently thus we have to understand that there will always be variation from what you see on screen compared to what you see on print or even other output devices. 

Due to differences in equipment, paper, inks and other conditions between colour proofing and production runs, a reasonable variation in colour [within 10%] between colour proofs and the completed job will be deemed acceptable unless otherwise agreed.
