Do be aware that RGB and Pantone colours will be automatically converted to CMYK, which might affect the colour of your print (and we don’t want that!).

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!

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 artwork@instantprint.co.uk. We’ll take it from there.

Our Studio team check every piece of artwork for every order placed with us. That’s over 10,000 pieces of artwork a week!

They have a keen eye for detail – and with experience in printing, design and photography, they understand what great print looks like and have lots of artwork knowledge to share.

We want your prints to be perfect, so if we notice something wrong with the resolution or layout we’ll always pause the order to let you know first.

Still unsure? Our Personal Artworkers are available for extra artwork support. Get in touch by sending an email to pa@instantprint.co.uk.

We know how important it is to get perfect prints, so we’ve come up with some handy guides to help you set up your artwork using our preferred specs. Go ahead, have a little browse…
