Supported File Types

Our preferred file type is a press quality PDF

PDF's can be saved from any of the industry standard graphics applications such as:

  • Adobe InDesign®
  • Adobe Illustrator®
  • Adobe Photoshop®

Other desktop publishing software may also offer an option to save or export a PDF:

  • Microsoft Word®
  • Publisher®
  • Microsoft Powerpoint®
  • Page Serif®
  • Google Docs PDF®

If you are familiar with Adobe Distiller, we have some optimised settings that you can load in ready for PDF creation, please ask for a copy.

If your chosen software can't produce a PDF, then you may be able to save a 'flattened' graphics file such as a TIF, JPG or PNG file. If you are using this option, please ensure that you save the files at 300dpi resolution.

I don’t have a PDF or flattened graphics file, can you work from my native file?

Yes, absolutely. We prefer PDF files, but if you don’t have one then we’ll be able to work with your native files. Please call us to discuss your project further.
Please make sure you have read our the minimum essential guidelines before sending your files to us.
