What type of file formats do you accept

10 June 2017

Adobe Acrobat PDF format files are our preferred choice. PDF’s must be press optimised (print ready) with bleed and crop marks.

Quark Xpress or Adobe InDesign files are acceptable if ‘collected for output’ (QuarkXpress) or ‘packaged’ (Adobe Indesign) so that all the files and fonts are included. Pages must be set up to the correct size with bleed.

Illustrator files are acceptable, ideally saved in .PDF format. Bleed and crop marks must be included and all fonts converted to outlines.

Photoshop or similar files should be supplied as 300dpi CMYK. Highest quality JPG is acceptable, bleed and crop marks must be included.

Microsoft Word, Excel, Publisher and PowerPoint files are acceptable, but ideally should be converted to PDF format.
