We will supply you with a cutter guide in PDF format to place your artwork to, once an order has been placed.
We require the artwork to have 3mm bleed around cut edges. We can accept artwork as high resolution pdfs or as illustrator files. If you are sending illustrator files please make sure either text is converted to outlines or you supply us the fonts used and any linked files.
We are happy to advise or help with minor artwork amendments at no charge. A PDF proof will be sent for approval before we progress to printing.
Digital printing for short print run products
Our prints are produced on Laser type Colour Digital Printers, these printers do not always handle solid colour and reversed out type areas very well, this may affect the amount of images we can print on a sheet to get the coverage required which can affect the cost. Extra charges and longer delivery times may be required if the images are not designed for these types of machine.
Design for card production
This product is made by mounting paper or thin card to Solid Greyboard ( OR Corrugated Board) whichever is appropriate.
The printing is mostly done digitally but occasionally by Litho and often runs multiple images to view. This in itself make registration difficult and the mounting process can also vary by up to 2-3mm. for this reason we do NOT recommend creating your artwork to butt up to folds or scores and to keep borders etc at least 10mm in from the edges.
