4 Rules for Designing the Perfect Fit
Make sure you’ve accounted for the ‘bleed’ in your design, filling this area with any background colours or images so that the colour goes to the edge leaving no white margins. Ensure all important parts of your design (such as text or shapes) are kept within the safe margin area, preferably 5mm away from edge.
Where possible designs featuring graphics or text should be submitted as vector based PDFs. To keep your text in vector format, we recommend applications like Adobe Illustrator, Adobe InDesign and more recent versions of Adobe Photoshop. Please note, saving text in JPEG format could result in ‘fuzzy’ edges.
When your design features a combination of photography and text, make sure the photographs included are 300 dpi @ 100% sizing. If you are not sure about the quality or size, please ask our design team to check for you and we will let you know if the image is high quality and will print out perfect, or if it will need to be replaced.
Supply your final artwork as a high quality PDF, with 3mm Bleed and Crop Marks (3mm away from edge). Do a final checkover for sizing, colour conversion, image quality, fonts are converted to outlines and bleed is included. Once this is all checked, we will do a final run-through in our prepress department and start proofing.
If you’ve already created your files for print, take a quick look at these guidelines before you email your artwork and place your order. It might save you time - and should help ensure your artwork is in the best possible format for print.
Accent Print and Copy can accept finished art in the programs listed above, but a cost factor will be incurred with all artwork and accuracy of output cannot be guaranteed.
We will, however, use the content of the files for re-design to your brief, subject to sighting supplied material.
