Setting your Artwork Up for Print


Convert all text to outlines
Make sure your artwork is in CMYK (Print) colour mode and not RGB (Screen) colour to ensure the most accurate colour print. Convert all your text to outlines so nothing changes when printed. Make sure your artwork has an extra 3mm of bleed on each side for colour to the edge prints. Anything touching the edge needs to be stretched to the 3mm bleed. 

Keep all text and logos inside the safe area (3mm from the trimmed edge on each side) to avoid having anything accidentally trimmed off. 

Please supply your final artwork without trim marks.

Areas of solid black should be in printer's or rich black (C:60 M:50 Y:50 K:100) for a true black print.  All text needs to be in 100% black(C:0 M: 0 Y: 0 K:100)  for crisp, clean results.
