Artwork Specifications

Please read through the checklist for providing design files.
Remember: If your files do not meet our specifications, your product may be printed incorrectly.
If you do not supply artwork which matches our requirements, we will ask you to resupply it or charge you for the time it takes to adjust.

01-File Format
+ ai, eps or pdf are the preferred file format. These are created in illustrator.
+ psd, jpg or tiff ( 300 dpi )

Safe Area
The safe area needs to be 2mm in from the final trimmed size. Please make sure all important information and graphics are contained in this box otherwise you risk losing it.

This is the final size of your printed product.

Generally speaking, a 3mm bleed is required for the printing process. Artwork and background colour need to extend into the bleed area, after trimming the bleed ensures no unprinted edges in the final product.
