Submitting Your Artwork

If you have artwork to send us, you can send it to us via e-mail to our sales team,
or use our dropbox, or on CD/DVD, or by USB device, or by using this form.

Print Ready Images

The image you send us must be of high resolution and most likely would need to contain 'bleed edges' and 'trims' so that we can send it directly to our print production team. (More information about bleeding edges in this YouTube tutorial.) We prefer images sent to us in PDF, EPS, TIFF or JPG format type.

  • When printing to the edge, the image you send should be at least 3mm beyond the edges, with trims marked on the image.
  • Keep image to 100% scale, with correct print dimensions.
  • 1-up centred on a single page.
  • Ensure you flatten all transparencies and layers to avoid problems when going to print.
