File Specifications

So that we can provide you with the highest quality printing, here are some tips and file specifications for setting up your documents.

File Format

PDF is best for documents.  JPEG and TIFF are best for photo.

Bleed

If you are wanting your document printed edge to edge, please include 3mm of bleed.
Bleed is an extra area around the edge of the document for the purpose of being trimmed off. Therefore this edge should not contain anything important.

Paper Size

Our paper is A series (ISO 216) e.g. A5, A4, A3. Its the most common paper series in the world though in the US and some other countries, the “Letter” paper size is more common.
Letter-sized paper has a different ratio from A Series paper and may cause issues when printing onto A series paper. For this reason please check your document set up.

Paper Type

We have a large selection of paper types, so don’t forget to include what paper weight and finishing you would like. If you are unsure that about the paper you want do not hesitate in contacting us.
