How to create a file for printing

The following instructions are designed to help you create a proper file for printing.

File format

Our systems only process PDF format files to 1:1 scale - not password protected. To avoid crop marks on your cards or flyers don't include them in your file.

Format orientation

File format orientation must match the choice indicated at the time of the order - portrait or landscape. All pages must have same orientation. PDF documents with rotated pages cannot be created. For front / back printing, the sheet is turned around its vertical axis as, for example, when turning the pages of a book.

Orientation

Font

Fonts must be embedded in the PDF file or converted in curves / paths. Character minimum size is 6 pt, under which we do not guarantee perfect quality prints.

Margins and bleed area

In order to correctly print the file for these products you must download the relevant template from our website your and use it as a base for your graphic. For Business cards it is necessary to add +2mm extra on all sides. For bigger formats like flyers +1mm extra is required on all sides. Texts must be 3mm away from the trim line.
