To get the best results we prefer files from the Adobe range, such as Photoshop and Illustrator.
PDFs and high quality jpgs can be accepted.
If you are working in a signage program please export to an AI, EPS, PDF or a TIF. Please include any photographs or links as separate files.
Resolution and Scale
It is always best to work at full size, with at least 120 dpi. Otherwise if the file size gets too big please work at 25% or 10% with a resolution of at least 300 dpi.
Please convert all text to outlines. (If you require us to edit text you will need to supply us with all fonts used for the job)
Where possible please supply us with a colour proof for us to match to, and clearly mark any pantone colours required for the job. Turn off all overprints.
