We require PDF files created to print ready specifications. Colour images should be down-sampled to 300DPI. The PDF colour space should be four-colour CMYK, unless Spot colours are required. Bleed and trim marks should be included. Files provided in any other format will require our designers to make changes and will incur a minimum fee of $60+GST.
Please ensure that all fonts are embedded in the PDF document or make sure you convert fonts to outlines to prevent any issues with fonts.
If there are any images within in the document, they must be saved as CMYK and no less than 300dpi, preferably in PSD, TIF or EPS to ensure quality.
Please specify if the job is to be printed in CMYK with/or spot colour etc. All spot colours need to be clearly specified.
Bleed, Trim Marks
If your document has colour or images placed off the edge of the page, a 5mm bleed is required. Trim marks (use solid lines) are to be included so the document can be trimmed to the desired size. Trim marks and fold lines are to be set outside the print area.
