Submitting Files

All files should be submitted as PDFs. We do NOT accept Word documents, as they do not hold their fonts, or formatting when opened on different computers. There are PDF converters online that are available for free, to ensure things are printed exactly as they look on your screen. Other acceptable formats include .ai ; .eps; .jpeg (for photos) ; packaged InDesign folders.

  3. Colour profile is CMYK (with the exception for photo files)
  4. No critical information inside the safety zone (within 1/8” of the edge of the paper edge)
