Artwork

Our graphics team are here to assist you from concept through to the finished product to make the process as easy and smooth as possible, so you are completely satisfied with how your promotional item will look.

We can set your text free of charge for simple designs however more complicated artwork requiring redraws or fonts that we do not have may incur a charge but we will advise you of this before proceeding.

We ask for artwork to be submitted by email or on a CD or DVD by post.  Files need to be supplied as an editable file in either Adobe Illustrator, saved as an .eps file format with text converted to curves or outlines (vector format) or a PDF of at least 300dpi. Pantone references (PMS) to ensure colour match is always useful. If you are unsure what format to submit your artwork in please do ask for help.

Please note – the best print results will be achieved by supplying the best quality artwork possible.

Please forward your artwork as early as possible so that we can check it is in the correct format and advise you on the best way your design can be presented on your chosen promotional item.

Basic artwork/design is included in your price.  For more involved designs, artwork will be charged at £20.00 per hour. This will include up to 3 amends.
