Preparing Artwork

It’s no secret that for a great print product you need well-prepped artwork. Although it’s possible for us to print from a wide range of formats, we get the very best result when your artwork is prepped using the specifications we suggest (see Preferred Artwork).

If you need any help to create your artwork, we offer guides, templates and a free artwork check. For anything else, give us a call, we’re always happy to help!

Sending Artwork

The great thing about our service is that you can upload, check and proof your artwork online all before making a payment. Even better, if you’d like to place an order before your artwork is ready (to take advantage of an awesome limited offer, maybe?), then you can! All you need to do is upload your artwork at a later date in the ‘My Account’ area, or email your artwork to We’ll take it from there.

Free Artwork Check

If you’re not sure about how your artwork will print, we offer a FREE artwork service to check the Resolution, Bleed, Size, Legibility (thin text) and Alignment of your work. All you have to do is email with your artwork and let us know what size you want to print. once we’ve got your email, it usually takes around two office hours to complete the check, although this can be a little longer during busy periods.
