MATCHING COLOURS > It is essential that you make us aware of any important colours before we go to print in order to match more accurately. It is not always possible to match Pantone colours using CYMK printers. If no colour reference is provided we have no idea what your colours should look like and can only print direct from disk. If the colour is critical, you must notify us prior to print.
IMAGE RESOLUTION > When creating or scanning artwork for printing you must ensure that the resolution is high enough to produce the desired results. Final resolution of images should not be less than 150dpi @ 100% of final output size. When creating artwork it needs to be at 25%, but check that the resolutions are sufficient to be increased to 400%. This will avoid any pixelation of the image due to low resolution files. Please do not convert a low resolution image to a higher resolution, quality will decrease often dramatically. This will result in a poor quality image. All images should be in CYMK format. If any Pantone colours are used please supply us with the Pantone reference number.
