File Size
Safety Area
Accepted File Types

All files need to be built to the final trim size plus bleed.

So your file should be 1/4″ larger than the product size that you are purchasing. (i.e.: 2*3.5 business card = 2.25*3.75 graphic file).

It’s important not to place any critical images or text beyond the safety area, which is at least 1/8″ from the final trim size, to avoid it getting cut off when the finished piece is trimmed.

i.e. bleed sample

If working out of vector based software such as Adobe Illustrator, InDesign, all text must be converted to outlines or curves before generating the final PDF file.

If working out of Adobe Photoshop, simply flatten the image. Please also make sure that you are not using a font size smaller than 7pt.

We recommend that all images used should be 300dpi for printing purposes. Submitting files with a higher than 300dpi is not necessary.

We require that all submitted files be saved in CMYK to ensure colour accuracy as all RGB submitted files are converted to CMYK.
