File Formats Not Accepted
The following Microsoft programs are not design packages and if supplied as artwork these formats will require converting and may incur an artwork charge.
Due to the vast amount of fonts available, all fonts must be outlined or embedded before sending the artwork. Failure to do this could result in your artwork printing with automatically substituted fonts and appearing different to intended.
Resolution Photoshop Files
To ensure high quality print, artwork or images need to be supplied at 300dpi (dots per inch) or higher at actual size. Enlarging smaller images will result in loss of quality, Anything lower than this may result in blurry, bitmapped or pixelated print. Images from the internet are 72dpi and appear fine on screen but they are not suitable for full colour printing.
