BEFORE SENDING DOCUMENTS PLEASE READ THIS GUIDE ON FILE SETUP REQUIREMENTS
All files must be supplied press ready and in PDF format. (Publisher/Word files can be accepted but will attract a $25 fee).
All files to be supplied one-up with bleed (if applicable)
Images for large format printing can be supplied as JPEG or TIFF and need to be at least 150dpi at the size you wish them to be printed.
For A4 (210 x 297mm)brochures the page size should be set to 216x303mm to allow for a 3mm bleed (remember to ensure that important text and objects are 5mm away from the cut line/margin, that means when using the full size including the bleed, these items should be 8mm away from the edge of your full size page edge).
We can preflight your files for you and give a report on their suitability for a fee of $10 per page/side, this prevents problems occurring later on with your job.
WORD/PUBLISHER - set your page size to CUSTOM (under Page Layout in Word 2003) and then 96x61mm for business cards & 216x303mm for A4 jobs, remember to set your margins so that your text and important objects do not get any closer than 8mm from any edge. If you want to have a colour that bleeds off all sides then this must be set to the full page size.
ALL ORDERS MUST BE PRE-PAID.
