File Requirements for print

For best results, please send PDF files to print. Artwork must be supplied as high resolution CMYK PDF, fonts embedded and images 300dpi.

Although PDF files are preferred, we may also accept JPEG files at 300dpi, CMYK colour, and in the case of Full Page or Double Page Spreads, with 3mm bleed. JPEG files may be rejected as unsuitable for print if they do not meet these standards.

Word, Publisher and PowerPoint files are NOT accepted.
