Artwork delivery

 

All artwork should be supplied as CTP (computer to plate) print ready PDF files in the correct printer's templates, accompanied by a completed Artwork Form

Please ensure that the pasteboard / template remains the same size as the supplied template, if dimensions are changed, cuts and folds will be in the wrong place.

You can find the size by opening the template pdf in Acrobat and hovering the cursor in the bottom left hand corner of the window.

The bleed and no text areas are clearly labeled on the templates. All full colour images should be CMYK (not RGB) at 300 dpi. Please ensure images that are to be printed in greyscale are supplied as greyscale and not CMYK.

Please ensure artwork is dropped on top of the template so that the blue guidelines do not show, the trim marks need to be left on. Glue flaps need to be whitened out (digipack / card wallet / vinyl sleeves).
