What format should I supply my artwork for printing in?
Our preferred artwork format is a vector, eps or ai file, with all fonts converted to outlines.
If you do not have this, please send what you have and we will adjust as needed to make it work . There may be additional charges if we need to recreate the artwork for you.
We will then email back to you a artwork proof for approval. Normally it is not practical to supply a printed sample due to set up costs, so we will request approval to proceed from the artwork.
