We can print directly from most popular PC and Mac file formats, including:
• PDFs (preferred)
• JPEGs (preferred)
To upload your artwork, add a product to your shopping cart and then drag and drop your files into our file uploader. Alternatively you can supply your artwork to us at any time via WeTransfer. On receipt, our printing egg-heads will double check your files and let you know if they spot any problems.
Before sending us your artwork, please note that a photograph or other pixel-based image needs a resolution of just 72 dpi (dots per inch) to display correctly on screen. However, our high resolution printing process requires images of around 300 dpi (although for large format posters - A2 size and above - images of 100dpi are usually adequate). Anything less may print with a pixelated 'jaggy' look. Please check the resolution of your images carefully... just because they look good on screen doesn't mean they'll print properly!
Not to worry though. If we spot anything which could affect the quality of your order, we will be in touch to let you know about the issue before pressing ahead.
If you're a dab hand at creating artwork and are comfortable adding 3mm bleed and crop marks then great. If all this sounds like Double Dutch then don't worry, our talented designers will handle this for you.
All we ask is that you supply the artwork in CMYK and keep all important elements of your design at least 3mm away from the edge of your artwork (we call this our "safe zone"). Although we use state-of-the-art equipment, some movement is inherent within all printing processes. If important elements of your design are placed too close to the edge of the paper, not only will it look unprofessional, but there's a chance they may get trimmed off. That doesn't mean you can't extend a background image or colour to the very edge of your artwork. That's fine of course. But please don't put your contact details along the very edge of the sheet. We'd hate your phone number to end up on our cutting room floor.

Would you like to see a proof of your artwork before we print your order? No worries, we’ll send you either an on-screen (PDF) or printed proof, free of charge. There’s just one small catch… you'll need to specify your product using the options above and then complete this form. On the next page, you'll be able to upload your artwork files.
Your PDF proof will be with you within a few working hours. A printed proof takes a little longer but we’ll post it out first class, so please keep an eye on your letterbox.
