What type of file do I supply for printing?

  • pdf Print Ready .PDF

    PDF's are the perfect file for all straight forward CMYK print runs. If your job has no embellishments this is the best format to supply.

  • eps Print Ready .AI or .EPS

    We require Illustrator files for any jobs which are a little bit fancy. If your job gets die-cut, spot uv, emboss or foil, this is the best format to supply.

Note: We do not accept native InDesign, Quark or CorelDraw files for printing.
